Enrique Alfaro Ramirez, the governor of the state of Jalisco, defended last Friday the state prosecutor Alejandro Gertz Maner:
“I think he is a serious man who would not lend himself to the political use of the institution he chairs.
He believed that the request submitted before the House of Representatives for the withdrawal of the competencies of his colleague from Tamaulipas, Francisco Javier Garcia Cabeza de Vaca, would have to be resolved in accordance with the rule of law.
For his part, Javier Corral Jurado, the governor of Chihuahua, firmly denied that, within the Federalist Alliance, there was a consensus to support President Tamaulipas in the face of the Federation’s alleged political onslaught.
Contrary to these statements, Garcia Cabeza de Vaca said yesterday that there was an obvious political intention against him.
He said that the Federation was fabricating crimes and that he was subjected to persecution, which was designed and ordered from the National Palace.
Together, these three statements lead to the first conclusion: The Federalist Alliance is dead.
This front, composed of 10 governors, was led by Alfar, Coral and Garcia Cabeza de Vace. Without these three leaders, there would never have been an Alliance.
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador won his latest appearance in a long game against the opposition: the Federalist Alliance will no longer be an obstacle to his government.
There are two possible explanations for Corral and Alfar’s refusal to support his colleague from Tamaulipas, despite the fact that they both beheaded the political front to which they belonged.
The first is that they also suspect Garcia Cabeze de Vace’s good reputation, or worse, having conclusive evidence regarding the alleged crimes he is accused of.
Another explanation would relate to 2024. Without Garcia Cabeze de Vace in the race, Alfaro and Corral are advancing as presidential options for elections to be held in three and a half years.
Enlarge: in the meantime, practically the entire PAN apparatus tied virtue and wealth to the political survival of Garcia Cabeza de Vaca.
