In response to criticism of his position as President, AMLO said he was in the presidency for the people.
Andrés Manuel López Obrador, president of Mexico, affirmed that the fact that he is in the Presidency of the Republic is due to the will of the people, and not because the National Electoral Institute (INE) or the Electoral Tribunal of the Judicial Power have decided so. of the Federation (TEPJF).
In fact, the words of the President of Mexico were forceful during the morning of April 4, saying:
“I am here for the people, in spite of them. I am here for the people. I am not here for the INE, or for the Tribunal. No no no no no. For the INE or for the Court, I was not there before,” said President López Obrador.
AMLO said he was in the presidency for the people
It was from the National Palace that AMLO said he was in the presidency for the people, this by attacking those who assert that it was the INE that allowed him to reach the Presidency in 2018.
“This is how they have always behaved, it is not new, because now they even say: ‘How are you going to question the INE if we rate your election for you to reach the Presidency?’”, declared the President.
“It’s not like that, no, no. I am here (in the Presidency) for the people, in spite of them. I am here for the people, I am not here for the INE or for the Tribunal, no, no, no, no, no. For the INE and for the Court I was not before. So it’s the same as the query. It is unfortunate that they act in this way but they will not be able to avoid it, ”he emphasized.
AMLO and the INE
Andrés Manuel López Obrador made it clear that the electoral bodies of Mexico have not risen to the occasion, and as an example he gave the cancellation of Morena’s candidacies in Guerrero and Michoacán in the last 2021 elections and the Revocation of the Mandate.
“The electoral authorities have not risen to the occasion. Since they canceled the candidacies of two candidates for the government of Guerrero and Michoacán, who first issued a resolution in one direction and then modified it, obviously, they clearly acted on a slogan,” AMLO.
In addition, he added that “Then when the revocation of the mandate is approved, they begin to put up obstacles of all kinds, that they did not have money, that they were not going to install the voting booths.”
But, it is not only the fact that AMLO said he was in the presidency for the people, the President pointed out that “When asked (the INE) if the former presidents were judged, with the same money they installed more boxesbut then the placement of the boxes and the constant declaration against us, against me”.
