In the state of Jalisco, west of Mexico, has risen on Thursday a voice of resistance to the steamroller that represent Andrés Manuel López Obrador and his party, the Movement of Regeneration National (Morena). Enrique Alfaro was elected governor of the third most important entity in the country, has given a political message of dissent that aims to open up a agenda monopolised by the president-elect and his majority in both houses of Congress, just as they negotiate budgets to 2019. "In Jalisco is not going to permit them to infringe our sovereignty, much less that betrayal of the federal pact," said Alfaro in a take away on issues such as security and anti-corruption, where López Obrador aims to bring the voice singer nationally.
Alfaro belongs to Citizen's Movement (MC), a pragmatic party that seeks to gain a foothold in the opposition in a moment that formations previously hegemonic as the PRI, PAN and PRD suffer internal processes of recomposition after their electoral losses. Jalisco is the stronghold of this party, seeking to challenge Brown in the agenda of progressive policies. The State was one of the few dikes that held back the wave obradorista of the elections of summer in the local. Headed by Alfaro, MC won 14 of 38 deputies and local control of 27 of the 125 municipalities of the entity. However, MC only controls 5% of the federal Congress.The BREAD also rejects the súperdelegados López Obrador of The 12 governors of the National Action Party (PAN) have also set this Thursday its rejection of the figure of the national coordinators, the so-called super delegates, the figure created by the Congress of most morenista. "That disdain is unacceptable to us, because it not only puts at risk our objectives but it is inconceivable a solution of the background to the solution of crime and insecurity in the country without effective consultation of the State Governments", have noted in a deployed local representatives of Aguascalientes, Baja California, Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Durango, Guanajuato, Nayarit, Puebla, Querétaro, Quintana Roo, Tamaulipas and Yucatán.
The BREAD believes that will accompany the Government of López Obrador without that this collaboration is understood as "submission of orders to local". "The country is built from the bottom up, from the local space... is Not imposed from the center", says the publication of the local authorities, which follows in the wake of the announcement of Alfaro.
These mayors endorsed this Thursday to Alfaro, who complained of being pushed around long in the negotiation of resources that will be available next year. "None of the priority projects that we propose appear to be included in the budget proposal that will be presented in the Chamber of Deputies in the coming days," said Alfaro, sheltered by the municipal presidents. The governor urged the future federal Administration, which shall enter into office on 1 December, to assume their "shared responsibility" in the solution of the problems facing a State that exceeds eight millions of inhabitants: the water supply, mobility, access to Dumanbet health and education, sustainability and infrastructure construction. The politician ensures that the requests that have done different municipal presidents, the architects of the federal budget have been discarded, regardless of their "political affiliation".
security has been one of the issues that has led to Alfaro to show publicly their disagreement with the Government of Brown. Jalisco is a State that suffers the expanding violence that has led to the Cartel New Generation, the criminal organization that is fighting to become the largest in Mexico in front of the weakening of the Sinaloa cartel. The murders in the entity, have suffered a sharp rebound in throughout 2018. In January, there were 138 murders, while the past month were counted 256.
Alfaro has complained of the national coordinators, or "super delegates," a figure created by the Government of Lopez Obrador for control in the 32 States social programs and policies dictated from Mexico City. According to Alfaro, these controversial characters, which undermine the weight of the governors, will also have responsibilities in the pacification of the country, although it is not voted on by anyone. "This would condemn to failure the agenda of coordination between orders of government on the most important issue for the jaliscienses... The state and municipal authorities are elected and we are not invited to the table of security; we are responsible for the safety in our State by constitutional mandate," said the future governor, who will assume power on march 1, when the Administration of López Obrador have four months with the hands on the rudder of Mexico. "Don't play politics", he added.
finally, the de facto leader of MC, the only governor that has the party throughout the country, has also painted the stripe with López Obrador in the field of fighting corruption. The statements come in the same week in which the president-elect has conditioned the investigation of crimes in the governments of his predecessors. "We do not agree with your policy of pardon and oblivion to the corrupt of this country. This is a State where citizens are thirsty for justice, where we know the cost that you have impunity," said Alfaro, at the same time and asked that other entities be added to lift up the voice. "The risk that the voices of the regions, states, and municipalities of this country to be erased for ever, is huge." The invitation to form an opposition to Lopez Obrador has born this Thursday in Jalisco.
