Because the majority in the Congress of Jalisco has denied the Hagamos parliamentary group from presiding over the Legislative Power, despite the favorable resolution of the Electoral Court of the State of Jalisco, The defense of this right will continue and all legal instances necessary for it will be used..
Valeria Ávila, vice president of Hagamos, and Mara Robles, and the president of the parliamentary group, agreed on the importance of recognizing this rightsince they are precisely the same arguments that Movimiento Ciudadano used to ask for representation in the Senate of the Republic, but in the local Congress want to deny this right without argument.
“While in Jalisco the municipalities suffer from a lack of fair redistribution of the works that are needed and once again we see how when something is denied to them in the Senate, they can fight for their representativeness and plurality to strengthen democracy, but when in Jalisco it is about oppositions, they apply the same ones that are made to them “Valeria Avila explained.
Mara Robles indicated that presiding over the Congress of Jalisco is not a capricious subject, but rather it is about being able to achieve changes from that space in which it is possible to promote reforms that would otherwise be impossible, and exemplified with the achievements of the previous legislature, when she presided over Congress and the vice presidents were Enrique Velázquez and Héctor Pizano; and how on that occasion they managed to pass the law to deal with the disappearance of people.
“The Presidency of the Board of Directors has the legal representation of Congress, it is a very powerful issue that has to do with important matters for the State, it has the political representation of the State Congress, it is enough to give the worst example of when the Presidency of the The Board of Directors abrogated the right to sign a statement with other Powers on behalf of the entire State Congress, without having discussed it in the Political Coordination Board; in some commission and much less in plenary”, recalled the deputy.
Ernesto Gutiérrez, president of Hagamos, highlighted that when the people cast their vote at the polls and gave it representation in Congressmust also be seen in the presidency of the Legislative Branch.
“It is not just about the party, it is also about the vote in 2021 that was cast at the polls being represented. The law establishes that so that it is the popular will that is also reflected in the organs of the Legislative Power”, he explained.
Enrique Velázquez, deputy for Hagamos, said he knew that the parliamentary groups with the largest number of members will deny them their right despite the judicial resolutions, but anticipated that They will fight to ensure that what is resolved in their favor is respected..
Ana Yerena, a lawyer for the party, stressed that precisely the same arguments made by the Citizen Movement to achieve representation in the governing bodies of the Senate, are what Hagamos is wielding and the courts are recognizing it.
