HERMOSILLO, Son.- After the candidate for mayor of Cajeme, Sonora, by Movimiento Ciudadano (MC), Abel Murrieta, was assassinated while proselytizing, the national coordinator of MC, Clemente Castañeda, blamed the President of the Republic, Andrés Manuel López Obrador and Claudia Pavlovich, governor of Sonora.
“The murder of Abel can only be considered as an attack on democracy in Sonora. We hold Governor Claudia Pavlovich and President Andrés Manuel López responsible for Abel’s death,” he said.. Catañeda Hoeflich indicated that Abel Murrieta was a Sonora attorney for 9 years and left with his head held high, with his reputation intact and the tranquility that only someone who always acted correctly and fulfilled their duty can have.
“It is clear that crime governs Sonora. The security authorities, state and federal, are overwhelmed. Citizens live in fear but, in Sonora, in Cajeme, they went from courage to participation and today, with bullets, they want to condemn them to despair. Abel paid for having said over and over again in his campaign that he had the courage to face the drug traffickers and that he was going to put order as soon as he reached the mayor’s office, “he said.
He also indicated that Abel’s honesty, courage and commitment to justice is evidenced by his participation in the legal defense of the Lebaron family and stressed that the security authorities, state and federal, are exceeded. Finally, Castañeda Hoeflich demanded immediate justice and that they find those responsible so that they define responsibilities, he stressed that today is a tragic day for Sonora, for his party and said that MC is in mourning.
Blaming the President is an act of baseness: Mario Delgado
Through a tweet, the national leader of Morena, Mario Delgado, pointed out that Dante Delgado, in an act of baseness, blames the President of the Republic for the unfortunate murder of Abel Murrieta. He claimed that he used the death of a candidate from his own ranks for the pounding. And he said that it is regrettable and irresponsible that they play with facts like that like this.
