Faced with the proposals of the CIDE student community and the possibility of opening a new process for the renewal of the director, he stressed that “we must see who is there because maybe it is from the groups of Krauze and Aguilar Camín who monopolized everything and were involved everywhere, and they are the ones who were dissatisfied.”
