He Former Governor of Tamaulipas, Francisco García Cabeza de Vacawas registered as a candidate for the presidential candidacy of the opposition alliance Va por México, but he did not carry out the process in person.
Instead, his brother, Senator Ismael Garcia Cabeza de Vaca, came on his behalf to register him with an applicant to be responsible for the construction of the Broad Front for Mexiconickname with which the coalition has designated its internal process to choose the presidential candidate in order not to violate the times provided by law for the start of the presidential elections in 2024.
“His entire family is representing him: his children are there, his mother is there, and yours truly is there,” the politician told the media upon leaving the register.
The opposition coalition Va por México started its internal process to define its presidential candidate for 2024 on Monday, July 4, with the registration of its first candidates.
So far they have registered the senator Xochitl Galvez Ruiz, the president of the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Deputies, Santiago Creel Miranda, the former secretary of Tourism, Enrique de la Madrid, the activist in favor of children with cancer, Israel Rivas, the former deputy panist Victor Hugo Gutierrez Yanez, the senator Beatrice Paredes and the ex-governor of Michoacan, Silvano Aureoles.
Cabeza de Vaca had already revealed his presidential aspirations since March, when he announced that he would register as a candidate.
Currently, the former governor is being investigated for the crimes of using resources of illicit origin and organized crime during his administration.
Due to these inquiries, an arrest warrant had been issued last year, but this was canceled by a federal judge who offered him an injunction considering that there was no evidence to charge both crimes.
With this, the ex-president of Tamaulipas was offered legal protection against the sentence in which he was accused of being involved in a real estate purchase, sale and transfer operation together with the businessman Juan Francisco Tamez Arellano and the Tamaulipas government contractor, Baltazar Higinio Resendez Cantu.
After the news, the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) accused the Eighth District Judge of the State of Tamaulipas, Faustino Gutiérrez Pérez, of acting as a defender of the former governor of Tamaulipas.
