The Morenista once again stated his aspirations for 2024 (Cuartoscuro)

Ricardo MonrealPresident of the Political Coordination Board (Jucopo) of the Senate of the Republic, published a text where he criticizes the internal control mechanisms established in the Power of attorneysince these are minor in comparison with the other two powers (Executive and Legislative).

Through its official page and in a particular context where this power will gain relevance in the coming weeks, the standard-bearer of National Regeneration Movement (Brunette) pointed out that in the great constitutional clockwork and counterweights, the Executive and Judicial branches are constantly subjected to endogenous (internal) and exogenous (external) processes, which could be dealt with by the Judiciary itself.

Regarding the Executive (presidency and state secretaries), he said that it is the power “most monitored, audited and subjected to public scrutiny in recent history”. In this sense, he denied that he is the weakest or most vulnerable, but he is the most easily prosecuted; In addition to this, he added that the Legislature usually submits to controls, audits and observations of the other Powers.

In this context, the candidate for the presidency of Mexico pointed out that “the challenge is to maintain balance, harmony and coordination” between powers, particularly the one established between the Executive and the Judiciary; However, he highlighted the state of inequality between them, since the Judiciary only submits to endogenous control mechanisms.

In this regard, he emphasized that said power has instruments that function as “powerful counterbalance weapons” contemplated in the Constitution: amparo, constitutional controversies and actions of unconstitutionality; reason for which he indicated the reviewing instruments of the executive and legislative.

Under this logic, he stressed that for the Judiciary the only instances of prosecution are the Council of the Judiciary and the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN), which has the consequence that it is “highly impervious to social and citizen accountability”.

This approach came in a particular context for the highest authority of said power, since the SCJN received the unconstitutionality appeals this week promoted by the Va por México coalition, made up of the PRI, PAN and PRDagainst Electoral Reform of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO).

And it is that, according to the opposition, the so-called AMLO Plan B It is an attack on democracy that favors state elections and the party-government, which is why they went to the Supreme Court to invalidate everything that contravenes the Political Constitution of the United Mexican States (cpeum).

However, opponents have not specified how Plan B violates the Constitution. What they have provided to the media and in videos that circulate on social networks is a version of how the General Law of Social Communication (LGCS) and the General Law of Administrative Responsibilities (LGRA) contravenes the Magna Carta, but when attending to these mentions, it is revealed that it is not true.

The PAN, for example, maintains that Plan B promotes attacks on opponents protected by “the supposed freedom of expression”, in addition to limiting the publicity of states and municipalities and promoting government achievements outside the established times; However the Article 134 of the Constitution (which is the one that deals with these issues) does not specify it; likewise, everything else is resolved in the General Law of Electoral Institutions and Procedures (LGIPE).

And it is in this context where Ricardo Monreal, who is seeking the presidency, points out that the control mechanisms of the Judiciary are limited in comparison to the Executive and Legislative and, on the other hand, the opposition faction, will seek that the resources promoted against the Plan B be resolved as soon as possible.
