THE PRD CANDIDATE AND REPRESENTATIVE OF THE ALLIANCE “POR MÉXICO AL FRENTE” CALLED ON ITS CONTENDERS TO BE “RESPONSIBLE” AND WAIT FOR THE OFFICIAL RESULTS “BECAUSE THIS IS A VERY CLOSED RACE”.

START TO ENDPOINT
As it happened with the presidential candidacy of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the Morena candidate led all the demographic exercises of the most recognized companies in the country from the beginning to the end of the campaign.
The survey with which the newspaper El Financiero closed its consultation exercises gave 45 percent of the intention of the vote to the former delegate of Tlalpan, while its closest persecutors Alejandra Barrales obtained 32 percent, and Mikel Arriola reported 19 percent of citizen preferences.
The newspaper Reforma, meanwhile, ranked it with 54 percent of the preferences, 20 points above Alejandra Barrales and 41 over Mikel Arriola.
The citizens of the CdMx chose this Sunday their new Head of Government, 66 local councils [33 of relative majority and 33 of proportional representation], 16 mayors [formerly called delegates] and 160 councilors
[10 for each City Hall]. The pattern was 7 million 656 thousand 360 voters.
The scientist voted shortly before 10 o’clock in the morning in box 3960, located on the old road to Xicalco, in the San Andrés Totiltepec colony, in the Tlalpan Delegation. His vote for the Head of Government of Mexico City, told the press, was for the writer Elena Poniatowska “as a recognition not only as a writer, but because she has been on the side of the causes of the poorest.”
The winner of the elections on Sunday talked last May with However, about the main concerns of the capital: corruption and violence. It knows that the satiety of the society by the governments emanated of the PRD have generated a rejection against the politicians and that what happened today at the polls is a vote of confidence so that she changes the state of affairs.
“THIS CITY TESTED A MODEL, FOR 12 YEARS, THAT WORKED. IN 2012 THE CITY WAS, EVEN THAT WAY IT WAS SPOKEN, ‘A BUBBLE’ OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN THE COUNTRY. WHILE THE DRUG WAR WAS GOING ON, THE CITY WAS SOMETHING ELSE. MANY PEOPLE FROM THE NORTH OF THE REPUBLIC CAME TO LIVE IN MEXICO CITY BECAUSE IT WAS A SAFE CITY. AND, THE FIRST THING TO DO IS TO RECOVER WHAT WAS DONE IN THOSE YEARS, OR THAT ALREADY SHOWED THAT IT WORKED. WHAT IS THAT? TAKE ADVANTAGE THAT YOU HAVE THE UNIQUE COMMAND FROM THE GOVERNMENT HEADQUARTERS AND ASSUME, AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY IN A BRAVE MANNER OF WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE CITY. SO, THAT’S WHY WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A SECURITY CABINET, VERY EARLY IN THE MORNING; OF THE COORDINATION BETWEEN PUBLIC SECURITY AND THE PROCURATOR’S OFFICE; THAT SHOWED THAT IT MAKES SENSE AND THAT IT WILL WORK, “HE EXPLAINED THEN.
“It was not the only thing: there was a very important revision of the Public Security Secretariat that was lost today; the model of quadrants that is quite disintegrated in Mexico City; the model of the sectorial controls, based on an established trust examination; the permanent review of the different areas; the indicators that let you know if it is working; intelligence, intelligence in all senses, from financial intelligence to intelligence in the sense of, together with the Attorney General, saying: ‘why have crimes increased in this area?’, ‘Who is operating?’, ‘ How is it working? ‘, so that you can make decisions. Illegal markets, for example, there is cell phone theft, where our cell phones sold? So, this cluster of actions that were taken,
“What they have today of the Ministry of Public Security is an outrage: that the seats are sold. People do not want to openly denounce it because they are afraid, but police have told me; that to have gasoline they have to pay a fee. Something that has the city in this situation, “he said.
He was told that Miguel Ángel Mancera insisted for five years that there were no crime cartels in the Mexican capital. The Morenoist replied:
“WELL, THE ISSUE IS IF THERE IS A TERRITORIAL DISPUTE OVER DRUG DEALING, RIGHT? THAT IS THE QUESTION. I BELIEVE THAT IN SOME PLACES OF THE CITY, YES. NOW, IT IS NOT NEW EITHER … NOW IT TURNS OUT THAT THERE IS SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM WHAT HAPPENED 12 YEARS AGO, OR 6 YEARS AGO OR 18 YEARS AGO. THE PROBLEM IS THAT HE LET GO; THE CONTROL WAS RELEASED, GOVERNABILITY WAS RELEASED, THE CITY WAS RELEASED. AND, THEN, WHEN IT IS RELEASED, WHEN THERE IS IMPUNITY … THE ISSUE OF HOMICIDES, FOR EXAMPLE. WHEN ANDRÉS MANUEL ARRIVES, THE PROBLEM OF DAILY HOMICIDES WAS 2.7. ANDRÉS MANUEL LEAVES THE GOVERNMENT AND IS LESS THAN 2, 1.9, 1.8. WITH MARCELO [EBRARD CASAUBÓN], MORE OR LESS REMAINED. AND TODAY IT IS IN 3, WORSE THAN AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR 2000. AND THE QUESTION IS: WHERE ARE THE INVESTIGATION FOLDERS OF THE POLICE THAT TAKE YOU TO SOMETHING WHERE THERE IS NO IMPUNITY? BECAUSE WHEN THERE ARE HOMICIDES, NOTHING HAPPENS. THAT IS, THEY DO NOT OPEN BECAUSE THERE ARE NO RESEARCH FOLDERS. IT IS NOT INVESTIGATED PROPERLY, AND THE CULPRITS ARE NOT ARRESTED. THEN IT IS THE CITY OF IMPUNITY. “
WHO IS CLAUDIA SHEINBAUM?
The story of Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo, who is the first woman elected as Mayor of the Mexican capital, can not be understood without Andrés Manuel López Obrador. It was between 2000 and 2006 when she served as Secretary of Environment of the then Government of the Federal District with the Tabasco politician at the head. In this period she was responsible for two of the most controversial and at the same time symbolic works of that administration: the so-called Second Floor of the Peripheral and the Metrobús.
In the last year of his administration he joined the campaign team of López Obrador, where he was his spokesperson and at the end of that same year he joined the Legitimate Government, which he named the PRD still facing the fraud that, he accused, was orchestrated so that will not arrive at Los Pinos and impose Felipe Calderón Hinojosa. In 2015, outside of the PRD, Sheinbaum Pardo was elected Delegate of Tlalpan, nominated by the nascent Morena party.
HOWEVER, SHE IS NOT ONLY A WOMAN DEDICATED TO PUBLIC FUNCTION. THE ACADEMY IS THE OTHER PART THAT SHAPES HIS LIFE AND THAT HE SAID WILL BE IMPORTANT TO ACHIEVE THE PROJECTS THAT THE COUNTRY’S CAPITAL REQUIRES. HIS BACHELOR IN PHYSICS, AND HIS MASTER’S AND DOCTORATE IN ENERGY ENGINEERING, ALL FROM THE NATIONAL AUTONOMOUS UNIVERSITY OF MEXICO (UNAM), ARE THE CREDENTIALS HE HAS PRESENTED.
-Why are you a better candidate than Martí Batres or Ricardo Monreal? – SinMeasongo asked, in an interview made at the end of last June.
-As I mentioned, our story speaks to us. What we have been and not only in political terms but also in personal terms. And I believe that in the two opportunities that I have had of that public official, as Secretary of the Environment and now as Delegation Head of Tlalpan, we show that we do things for the City, that we know the City and that it is feasible to have a project of the city towards the future. Although I respect Ricardo as much as Marti.
-It is said that López Obrador has a preference for you, is that true?
-Do not. I believe that we are part of a team, a project. We have been working with López Obrador for many years. I have a great admiration and I think it will be respectful of the statutes and what the survey decides, “he added.
