The Federalist Alliance is made up of governors from ten states: Durango, Chihuahua, Jalisco, Tamaulipas, Michoacán, Colima, Coahuila, Guanajuato, Nuevo León and Aguascalientes.
Governors that make up the Federalist Alliance took the floor of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to initiate citizen consultations in their entities in which they ask the people if the states should continue within the federal pact.
The governor of Jalisco, Enrique Alfaro, announced that he will hold a consultation so that citizens can decide if the entity should remain in the federal pact.
“In Jalisco we are going to start, from this moment on, the route to consult the citizens to find out if they agree that our state remains in this abusive relationship with the Federation. The President says you have to ask people. I share your opinion, we are going to start this consultation process and we are going to ask the citizens of Jalisco if we are willing to maintain a relationship in which Jalisco contributes a lot to the Federation and what it receives is mistreatment, rudeness and disdain ” , He said.
On Twitter, the governor of Nuevo León, Jaime Rodríguez Calderón, asked his fellow citizens: “How do you see? Do we hold a public consultation to decide if we continue to be the ones who give the most to the Federation, despite the fact that they return only 28 cents for each peso we send, or that Nuevo León keeps what it contributes? ” Network users can answer “Yes to the query” or “Let’s keep giving the same.”
Meanwhile, Silvano Aureoles, president of Michoacán, said that he will carry out a consultation to see what citizens think of the treatment that the Federation gives to states and municipalities.
Aureoles Conejo expressed his surprise at the response of the federal Executive when he did not want to receive the governors who asked him for a hearing to review the budget cut that only for Michoacán represents around 7,720 million pesos less for 2021 and, instead, asked that a survey be carried out among the population, a subject that the leaders began working yesterday.
He added that the governors of the Federalist Alliance will meet virtually to begin to give legal strength to the consultation.
“If he wants us to consult, we will do it to see what the citizens say about the treatment that the central government, which he heads, gives to the states,” he said.
Martín Orozco, governor of Aguascalientes, published a query on Twitter, with the following question: Do you agree that the federal government returns to the people the resources for health, culture, sports, science, security, human rights, among others? “, To which you can answer” yes “or” no “directly on the social network.
The same consultation format used by Diego Sinhue Rodríguez Vallejo, on Twitter, with the following question: “In view of the President’s statement, I ask you: Do the Guanajuato citizens want the federal government to return the resources for cancer treatments, scholarships for students, the support for science, culture, sports, security and infrastructure that correspond to them? ”.
For his part, Miguel Ángel Riquelme, president of Coahuila, did not rule out accepting the challenge launched by the President and considered that a consultation could be carried out in the entity in various ways, including the “show of hands” mode, used by the Chief Executive .
