Morena has a dozen candidates for the Tamaulipas candidacy, but the polls that Mario Delgado has been able to know recently only place one woman in the position to compete — and win — the constitutional contest.
This is Maki Ortiz, who recently ran for re-election as Mayor of Reynosa. With her, Mario Alberto la Borrega López Hernández, in Matamoros and Carmen Lilia Canturosas in Nuevo Laredo, Morena governs the main border municipalities for the first time. But they and their counterpart from Ciudad Madero, Adrián Oseguera Kernion, would be off the radar of the party leadership for the candidacy for the government of that Gulf entity.
Popularity is not the only attribute to consider for those decision makers. One of the determining variables – although formally it is not among the sold weights of the party leadership – is the proximity to the National Palace. There, Oseguera – close to the former governor of Michoacán, Lázaro Cárdenas Batel – is at a clear disadvantage before the newly appointed coordinator of federal programs, Rodolfo González Valderrama, and José Ramón Gómez Leal, who ceased to be super delegate to assume the reins of the party in that entity.
The electoral processes in the entities that will go to the polls on June 5, 2022 have already started. In Oaxaca, Tamaulipas and Aguascalientes the legal deadlines are already running and within two months the first resignations must be made, on the eve of the beginning of the pre-campaigns.
Before that, the parties and coalitions will have to define which candidates are reserved for women. Three, under the criterion of parity. Morena is looking for candidates in Aguascalientes, in the face of the reluctance of its best positioned candidate, Arturo Ávila, and the imminent nomination of the PAN deputy Tere Jiménez.
As in Querétaro, where Mauricio Kuri won, the PAN does not need an alliance to retain the governorship, although it could join the PRD. And four months ago, in concurrent elections to the federal one, his candidates obtained 47% of the vote, with which they won four of the 11 mayors and 16 of the 18 local districts.
Quintana Roo is the only one of the six entities where Morena has a wide deck of candidates. With better scores, the mayor of Benito Juárez, Mara Lezama, and Senator Maribel Villegas Canché. But neither the monrealists nor the pure would win this pulse: if the National Palace decided by proximity, the current director of the Interoceanic Corridor, Rafael Marín Mollinedo, would be nominated. And in Tamaulipas, the former general director of RTC, Rodolfo González Valderrama.
Aguascalientes and Hidalgo —according to the consensus of the demoscopes— will be scenarios of close contests and only in the state of Bajío Morena would it start at a disadvantage, although the PAN is divided.
The excess of candidates can confuse Morena, whose leaders bet on a full car in the six governorships that will be elected next year, even if the PAN, the PRI and the PRD maintain their electoral alliance in 2022.
In Tamaulipas, the outgoing governor, Francisco Javier García Cabeza de Vaca, would favor the nomination of his secretary of government, César Augusto el Truco Verástegui, although the best positioned candidate is the mayor of Tampico, Chucho Nader. Recent studies confirm that Morena’s advantage in that entity is 20 points.
The same is true in Durango, Oaxaca and Quintana Roo, where the current governing coalitions would have no chance of defeating the leftist party … unless splits occurred. The best positioned candidates are the mayor of Gómez Palacio, Marina Vitela Rodríguez, for Durango; and Senator Susana Harp for Oaxaca.
ENDLESS. A block of members of the Cruz Azul cooperative went to the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation to file an appeal for review on the refusal of protection of magistrates of the First Collegiate Court in Civil Matters to combat the resolution that ratifies José in his positions Antonio Marín and Víctor Velázquez, within the framework of the Members’ Assembly held in September 2018, which – the complainants maintain – is invalid because it was held at an unofficial address. The complainants represent more than 17,000 families who have seen their economic perceptions and benefits reduced. And they speak on behalf of 200 partners who have been unpaid for more than a year.
COMPLAINTS. The 45th edition of the procedure for defining medical residencies unfolded in fits and starts. Due to the health contingency, the national exam was applied online. But the system fell from last Thursday the 7th and thousands of supporters were left in limbo. To avoid fraud, it was arranged that access to the platform was only through a desktop PC or laptop. But the instructions were contradictory — it was required to access the page by means of a QR code, but it could only be read on a smartphone — and the call center for support did not work. The supporters had to pay a registration fee that generated 180 million pesos to the coffers of the Ministry of Health.
