Raul Araiza assures that he did not receive money for supporting the Green Ecologist Party of Mexico (PVEM) in the recent elections, after it was revealed that supposedly several influencers did receive 10,000 pesos for asking people to vote for this political party.
“In my personal case, someone told me: ‘You can support me’, and I said: ‘of course you do.’
“Of course not, of course there is not going to be (money), if there were, it would be noticed,” he told various media outside Televisa, including “Ventaneando.”
Araiza, host of “Hoy”, said he felt calm because He did nothing wrong, they asked for his support, he gave it, and only that.
“I uploaded a story, I am not going to justify myself, I am not afraid of anything and much less says nothing bad, that is why I am giving the interview perfectly well. In my personal case, someone told me: ‘You can support me’, and I said: ‘of course I am, with great pleasure’, but there is nothing strange about me. He told me: ‘We must follow up on all the proposals we make’, which for me are very good, “said the driver.
Jorge “El burro” Van Rankin, who was accompanying Araiza, intervened in the conversation to support his friend, and said that although some people may have received payment, in Araiza’s case it was not.
“Charging 10 thousand pesos to do that, so that all the people will throw at you, it makes me very poor. I do not justify it, it seems to me that it is wrong, “said the presenter.
“El Negro”, as his friends affectionately call him, assured that his support for said party is not something new.
“I’ve always been with the Green Party, that’s not a surprise; be careful, I can’t speak for others. It’s a matter of respecting everyone for who they believe.”
Araiza respects Sebastián Rulli’s opinion
On the criticism that the actor Sebastián Rulli launched for all those who lent themselves to support the Green Party for money, Araiza said that he respected the point of view of “Sebas”, and was ironic with many people who came out to criticize him when, he says , they do the same.
“Suddenly it makes me laugh that great citizens come out, how outrageous, how easy it is to say ‘because they are such and such’ when they themselves have done it in other ways, it’s great to see how they project themselves now and suddenly they are very holy “, he finished.
More cases of celebrities and influencers who supported the Green Party
Barbara de Regil, actress of “Rosario Tijeras”, acknowledged that everything she says becomes controversial and that she is already used to this situation, but that she simply gave her opinion on the subject.
“I’m used to controversy because everything I say becomes controversial; I gave my opinion on something, but that’s why I don’t like to comment on religion, politics, football because people take it extremely personal and how ugly, because one can give your opinion of what you want, “he said.
“No, I get everything I do, it comes from my heart, I label everyone, I talk about whatever I want, that is, I always think about whatever,” he said.
De Regil clarified that he only answered a question that a netizen had asked him about who he was going to vote for on June 6.
“In some questions I asked eight days ago, they asked me which party are you going to vote for, and I did not answer for which, I only answered that I liked the proposals of … that was all, but because I liked them.”
For her part, Romina Marcos, daughter of the controversial Niurka, is one of the many influencers who violated the electoral ban to promote the Green Party a few hours before the 2021 elections.
The Cuban-born vedette responded to those who point out her daughter as being a “sold”: “This is for all those who are saying my daughter has been sold. How long have you been the owner here? Did he commit to you or where did he sign you? What have you contributed to him? “he asked.
Niurka also stated that her daughter owes nothing to anyone and has the right to do whatever she wants:
“Owner of what part of her life are you? Or what part of her mind of her career, of her effort? Of what sold? Of what? My daughter sold from what wave? She is free to do what that she wants. The only one who gave him something to get to where he is was me, and I gave it to him as a gift. I taught him to think, to exist, to proceed and to express an opinion. And also to give, which he never charged you for. “
