“That primaries be held, that the comrades who have aspirations and merits that cover certain requirements, of the different parties, that they travel the country, that debates are made, that we generate our own narrative, and that later the INE, at the request of political parties, organize a primary election where it is decided that the candidate leaves the will of the citizens and not the quarters of the current power, “- Held.
