Mexico City, November 28 (SinEmbargo).- Porfirio Muñoz Ledo was in charge of passing the presidential band from the hands of Enrique Peña Nieto to those of Andrés Manuel López Obrador on the first day of December 2018. Two years away, the historic left-wing politician claims that the Fourth Transformation is not seen.
«The people below – who have very goodwill and a lot of faith – still believe in the Fourth Transformation,» Muñoz Ledo said in an interview with Proceso magazine.
Muñoz Ledo «observes, on the other hand, public policy decisions in which ‘arbitrariness’ prevails over reason. And it gives as examples the imposition of a ‘recessionary budget’ and the elimination of 109 public trusts,» writes journalist Neldy San Martín of the Mexican weekly.

The Mexican politician regretted, during the meeting with Proceso, that the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) has adopted a unique thought and that the bench in San Lázaro has become «a servile echo of the Executive».
«The bylaws of the party, in its principles, say that there should be no one-size-all thinking, that dissent is worth it if there is a common goal. So, if there is no one-of-a-box thinking, there should also be no single order,» he said. His words are found in the text Two years of government and the Fourth Transformation is not seen: Muñoz Ledo.
«The problems that the country has demand the primacy of reason not arbitrariness, because other hand, we will not go out. The primacy of reason means that if you rearm public spending it has to be for careful reform. To reform the state you don’t amputate this, you say all the trusts outside, everyone, no, but you analyze, you lose weight, not amputees,» he added. The full interview can be consulted in the 2 thousand 300 edition of Process.
On October 23, Porfirio Muñoz Ledo asked the militancy of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) to express himself and not allow the victory of money over politics, after it was revealed that Mario Delgado Carrillo defeated him in the survey to decide who would be the leader of the party that founded Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
«Companions and colleagues, members of the basis of our party, the only acceptable decision for the organization of a political party is that of the foundation, expressed in its constituent bodies. These polls are kicked out by private companies and outside the law, we always protest against them, because they meant the triumph of money over principles. We have been beaten, in us, by militancy, lies the final decision,» he said in a video shared on his networks.
«I invite you to express themselves, to reject the purchase of politics for money and to confirm Morena’s historic project, which is not at the service of any futurism, nor any personal fortune,» he added.
Mexico’s National Electoral Institute (INE) announced on October 23 that Deputy Mario Delgado won the poll to elect the new leader of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena).
Delgado, who represents the wing closest to López Obrador, prevailed with 58.6 percent of the supports compared to the 41.4 percent obtained by his rival in the contest, the deputy Porfirio Muñoz Ledo.
