Morelia, Michoacan .- The governor-elect, Alfredo Ramirez Bedolla, said that the indigenous communities of Michoacan have been aggrieved by institutional oblivion and repression by the state government, which is why he called on the native peoples to build together a new form of governance, they said in a statement.
In a press conference, Alfredo Ramirez said that indigenous communities, especially those that carry out processes of self-government, no longer want a paternalistic or assistanceist relationship with the different levels of government, so he offered full coordination and collaboration of his government with native peoples.
Ramirez Bedolla announced that he has been working with both authorities and indigenous peoples to ensure that the government and indigenous communities are on the same page, and that the 129 indigenous tenures have access to the direct budget or self-government recognized in the new Municipal Organic Law.
