Unanimously, the magistrates denied that the chancellor promoted himself with the intention of running for the Presidency of the Republic in his participation in events in Tamaulipas and Durango.
“There are no elements to determine that there is an intention to promote his possible candidacy for the Presidency of the Republic in the 2023-2024 federal electoral process,” the project determined.
The foregoing, considering that the foreign minister spoke of issues of public interest protected by freedom of expression.
The Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) denounced Marcelo Ebrard because it considered that during his participation in proselytizing events he carried out early pre-campaign and campaign acts, for which the principle of equality of the contest was violated.
In the first instance, the Specialized Regional Chamber determined that he had not incurred in these acts because it did not find explicit or implicit elements that would call for a vote in his favor in the next presidential election, a ruling that was confirmed by the Superior Chamber.
