The National Action Party (PAN) affirmed that there is a use of the State apparatus to harm the opposition, including espionage and dissemination of distorted calls to “intimidate those who think differently.”
In a statement, the party endorsed the complaint made by the PRI leader, Alejandro Moreno, about “threats and pressure from the Secretary of the Interior against PRI deputies and the national leader to approve the electricity reform.”
The president of the party, Marko Cortés Mendoza, said that it is “totally illegal and immoral, it is a crime and a violation of human rights to carry out this type of activity under the protection of the State.”
The party claims that this is a response to the opposition that managed to block President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s electricity reform.
He said that the Coalition Goes for Mexico (PRI-PAN-PRD) “will continue to be united and make decisions in favor of Mexico.”
The national leader of the PRI, Alejandro ‘Alito’ Morenoexhibited a phone call with a subject he identified as Senator Manuel Velascowho, according to what is heard in the communication, served as a messenger of pressure by Morena against the PRI.
“That if you didn’t jalabas they were going to go with everything”, is heard to say the interlocutor of ‘Alito’ Moreno. According to reports, the threat came in the context of the discussion of the energy reform promoted by the Government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, which did not achieve the necessary qualified majority due to the votes against the opposition.
