Arguing that they are “a farce,” Movimiento Ciudadano announced Monday that his political party will not participate in the 2023 gubernatorial elections in Coahuila and the State of Mexico.
Through a statement released on its social networks, the orange party exposed six points that motivated its decision, among which are that “the old policy has already agreed; the only alliance is that of the PRI with Morena; we know the result from today; they agreed; the candidacies have not stopped violating the law and the election will be very expensive,” according to what they said.
This statement was published on the national social networks of Movimiento Ciudadano, although it has not been formally replicated in the Coahuila accounts.
Prior to the dissemination of this notice, the senator and coordinator of Movimiento Ciudadano, Juan Zepeda, announced that he would not be the candidate for governor of the State of Mexico and that, in addition, the most certain thing was that his party will not participate in said elections.
During an interview with journalist Ciro Gómez Leyva, the politician explained his reasons for withdrawing from the candidacy for the State of Mexico, in which he highlighted the polarization and attacks of the other political parties.
“Today my voice wants to have serenity, prudence and if you like a little bit of wisdom, because I already lived this scenario 6 years ago,” he said.
This Monday, March 6, it had been announced the meeting of the National Citizen Coordinator, which would be established in the National Electoral Assembly to make a definition regarding the candidacies of the State of Mexico and CoahuilaZepeda reported.
In said meeting, the reason the senator recommended not presenting a candidate for governor in the State of Mexico would be on the table.
