Marcelo Ebrard said that the other candidates for Morena’s candidacy for the presidency are an “enigma” for President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, to the extent that he cannot foresee how they would perform if they won the 2024 election. , while I have already been his successor in public office.
“I was a candidate in 2005 for Mexico City. Of those of us competing, I am the only one who has succeeded Andrés Manuel. The only one who is not an enigma for him is Marcelo Ebrard; the others are a question mark, who knows what they will do, he already knows me, I was already his successor, ”said the chancellor.
In his tour of Tijuana, Ebrard recounted what the process was like to be elected candidate for the Head of Government of the Federal District 18 years ago by the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD).
He recalled that since then he had already been part of the cabinet of the now president of Mexico when López Obrador was then the head of the capital’s government.
The candidates for Morena’s candidacy for the presidency are known as “Corcholatas”, among which are the current head of government, Claudia Sheinbaum; the Secretary of the Interior, Adán Augusto López Hernández, as well as the Foreign Minister.
At the beginning of 2023, Senator Ricardo Monreal (also from Morena, of course) joined this list.
Ebrard also spoke about the internal process that Morena will have this year to define the candidate. He assured that the party leadership, which is in charge of Mario Delgado, must set the rules.
