Morena asked the Labour Party, her ally in Puebla, to correct and not give a candidacy to Mauricio Toledo, a former perredist in Coyoacán who is currently accused of illicit enrichment and faces a process of disafgard.
Citlalli Hernandez, General Secretary of Morena, said this party did not know that the PT would nominate Toledo, as each coalition party registers its candidates.
In Puebla, Morena goes in alliance with PT and PVEM. Toledo would compete for the 5th arrondissement of San Martín Texmelucan, Puebla, as the standard-bearer of the Labour Party, for which he is currently a federal deputy.
On the nomination of @mauriciotoledog as a PT candidate in Puebla:
Each Coalition party registers its candidates, so in brunette we had no knowledge that they would nominate him.
Your candidacy does NOT represent the values of 4Q. @PTnacionalMX must correct.
— Citlalli Hernández M (@CitlaHM) April 2, 2021
«Your candidacy does NOT represent the values of 4Q. The PT must correct,» Hernandez said through his Twitter account.
He even said that Morena’s deputies must expedite the process of deaffroning in the Chamber of Deputies for the CDMX Prosecutor’s Office to continue the process against Toledo.
Read: Chamber of Deputies initiates e-death proceedings against Toledo, following request from CDMX Prosecutor’s Office
Last January, the Instructor Section of the Chamber of Deputies approved an agreement to initiate proceedings and integrate a Declaration of Origin file against Mauricio Alonso Toledo, for the alleged commission of illicit enrichment.
On January 25, the Mexico City Prosecutor’s Office asked the Chamber of Deputies to withdraw the money to Toledo, in order to proceed against him for the crime of illicit enrichment, as he identified an unjustified and unexplained increase in his estate.
Vianey Garcia, who had enrolled as an aspiring federal provincial council in the 5th arrondissement of San Martín Texmelucan, noted that she was the best positioned according to the party’s polls, so «it was a surprise» that the coalition gives the record to Toledo, who lives on the CDMX and does not know the district for which she will compete.
