Mexico City.- A group of four deputies and a deputy from Morena chose to go to the Mexico-Spain inter-parliamentary rather than participate in the march called by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, next Sunday, from the Angel of Independence to the Zócalo.

Of the Morena delegation, only the coordinator, Ignacio Mier, gave up the trip to be able to attend the march and the others are getting ready to fly tomorrow to Madrid, Spain.

Meanwhile, in the Senate, legislators from Morena and PT have been pressured not to go to the inter-parliamentary, including Senator Ricardo Monreal. In San Lázaro, the trips were not cancelled.

Deputies Olga Zulema Adams Pereyra, Claudia Selene Ávila Flores, Pedro David Ortega Fonseca, Susana Prieto Terrazas and Laura Imelda Pérez Segura confirmed their attendance.

In addition, they requested a one-day leave, on Tuesday the 29th, and they will reincorporate on the 30th.

Reforma published today that the deputies and senators who attend the inter-parliamentary will enjoy a luxurious stay during their stay.

They will be accommodated at the Palacio de los Duques, Gran Meliá, where one night has an average cost of 8,000 pesos.

When the march is on Sunday morning in Mexico, the deputies of Morena will be preparing for the gala dinner that will be offered by deputies and senators from Spain, at the Casa América restaurant.

At the end of the legislative meeting, Mexican legislators will have a reception with the Mexican Ambassador to Spain, former PRI member Quirino Ordaz.

In this Thursday’s session, the one-day licenses for Morena deputies Olga Zulema Adams Pereyra, Claudia Selene Ávila Flores, Pedro David Ortega Fonseca, Susana Prieto Terrazas and Laura Imelda Pérez Segura were approved, in order to cover their absences with the substitutes during the vote on the electoral reform.

The deputies will maintain their position while they are in the interparliamentary, which concludes on Sunday, but since the return is scheduled for Tuesday, November 29, they requested leave only for that day.

With this, Morena will repeat the measure that the substitutes of the deputies who are traveling and cannot be in the plenary sessions be called, as happened in October with legislators who went to Rwanda, to a session of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, when The constitutional reform that extends to 2028 the presence of the military in public security tasks was voted.

In this case, the substitutes for the four deputies and the deputies will be called when the discussion of the opinion on the electoral reform takes place in plenary session, probably next Tuesday, according to Morena’s plans.
