President Andrés Manuel López Obrador assured that the promotion of his wife, Dr. Beatriz Gutiérrez Müller from the category of candidate to level 1 researcher in the National System of Researchers (SNI) is due to the fact that she underwent the examination and complied with all the procedure that is required, so it is not an imposition, “we do not do that”.
At a press conference, the head of the federal Executive stated that Gutiérrez Müller is an academic, conducts research and publishes, requirements that are needed to advance in the SNI.
“I take this opportunity to clarify, because there was misinformation, the opponents, those who do not like us, my wife Beatriz, because she is an academic, is at university, teaches and does research and has publications on her profession, so about two years ago she took an exam entering the National System of Researchers and they qualified her as a ‘candidate’, which is the first level, a candidate for a researcher, already belonging to the SIN, but as a candidate, “said the president.
“And then comes the promotion, now there are 10 thousand new researchers and she also presented her exam and they already give her level 1 category, level 1 researcher, was the one that corresponds, but underwent the entire procedure. But those who do not love us, those who do not see us with good eyes, because they made me know that it was an imposition, but we do not do that. I just take the opportunity to clarify it, “he added.
