translated from Spanish: Mexico is experiencing a tense political environment due to media cases

The dimes and diretes between Ricardo Anaya and the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, have gained strength since recent days. While Ricardo Anaya accuses the president of trying to stop his intention to seek the presidency in 2024 with alleged false evidence against him to put him in jail, AMLO calls him “chueco and hypocritical” in his morning lectures. But the political landscape doesn’t end there. This week, the presidents of the PRI, PAN and PRD parties denounced to the Organization of American States (OAS) the alleged interference of organized crime in the June elections, in addition to an alleged factional use of the institutions to persecute opponents, as well as the harassment of electoral bodies. In an interview for Debate, Gustavo Urbina, professor-researcher at the Center for Sociological Studies of the College of Mexico, stressed that, in terms of public debate, these cases are phenomena or conjunctures that generate a lot of stir, but that in reality do not tend to impact predominantly neither electoral preferences nor the way the electorate is inclined. However, he said that it does leave a bad taste in the mouth in terms of the real problem he faces, such as the very selective handling of justice or the prosecution of justice at the media level. Those pointed out by Lozoya Gustavo Urbina explained that, in addition to this justice at the media level, another important situation that is hinted at is the lack of care in the way information is filtered, both the content of the information folder and the processes that will be followed to certain political figures, in this case Ricardo Anaya.” This leaves us with an important situation, if there are indeed elements to presume that Ricardo Anaya incurred in an illicit act, he will have to be prosecuted according to law, and in attention to due process; but, on the other hand, what is very important is that there is no political and factional use of politics, where only certain cases are stirred, precisely so as not to give rise to suspicions and that it ends up believing that only certain figures are followed, “he said. The specialist explained that the accusations against Ricardo Anaya are derived from the explicit statement made by Emilio Lozoya, where he said that between 2013 and 2014 the distribution of money had been made to different figures, among which Ricardo Anaya, then coordinator of the PAN caucus in Congress, is indicated. However, he recalled that before Ricardo Anaya, former Senator Jorge Luis Lavalle was linked to the process for the Lozoya-Odebrecht case, which was arrested just after being summoned to testify and right there it was determined that he should be imprisoned in the north prison. To which Ricardo Anaya has refused because he fears a similar panorama. In this context, the newspaper Reforma reported that the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) has outlined an indictment for the crimes of criminal association and bribery against former President Enrique Peña Nieto and former Finance Secretary Luis Videgaray, for the bribes allegedly delivered by the former director of Pemex, Emilio Lozoya, to approve the energy reform. In this regard, Gustavo Urbina pointed out that these characters are part of the 70 political figures that are referred to by Lozoya’s statements. He pointed out that one of the things that has to be taken into account, in relation to the way in which this Government treats phenomena communicatively, is that suddenly too much resonance is made to certain cases, as is the case now of Ricardo Anaya or the reference to the alleged accusation that is made about Luis Videgaray. “But at the end of the day, people expect results. If there are indeed elements so that these figures can be prosecuted legally or judicially, what people will expect is that they actually end up behind bars or that they end up paying for the crime they committed. But not necessarily that everything is, let’s say, a matter that vents in an exchange of qualifiers, either in the morning or in social networks, “he criticized. Parties On the complaint to the OAS of Marko Cortés, Jesús Zambrano and Alejandro Moreno, presidents of PAN, PRD and PRI, respectively, Gustavo Urbina, professor-researcher at the Center for Sociological Studies of the College of Mexico, indicated that it impacts internationally, in the sense that what it will do is precisely the therize or, in some way, propagate part of the distrust that is already experienced in some Latin American countries. situation, in which, in some way, there is a perception that organized crime has infiltrated different activities in which the State should have greater control, orIn the same way, the electoral processes are not the same as the electoral processes. “What is quite unfortunate on the part of the leaders of the parties in this case of the PRI, PAN and PRD, is that, if they had the evidentiary elements, as well as the elements that effectively generate or detonate investigations into the alleged involvement of organized crime, they would have had to be presented before instances that are binding, and not before an international organization such as the OAS,” Said. To understand… They give with everything! The former presidential candidate of the PAN Ricardo Anaya Cortés proposed to the president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, that he would be willing to go to testify for the accusations against him with the condition that that same day, and at the same time and before the same judge, his two brothers appear: Pío and Martín López Obrador, and that they be treated equally and the evidence valued in the same way. To this, AMLO replied: “it is a marrullería, a maneuver, who sends him to grab money, that this serves as an experience for young people that it is not about triumphing at all costs without moral scruples of any kind.” Read more: PT coordinator murdered in Córdoba, Veracruz; AMLO accused that the PAN politician must assume his responsibility and that it is clear to him: “he knows it, only that he is chueco, hypocritical, he knows well that I do not persecute anyone, I am not of bad guts, I do not hate, I am not equal to them.” With information from El Universal.
