After concluding yesterday the registration of the candidates for the position of Attorney General of State Justice, Deputies from the different benches divided opinions by the profile of the candidates and the way in which the selection process is carried out.
While some anticipated a “coup”after confirming the participation of Adrián de la Garza, former tricolor candidate for Governor, others assured that everything has been done in accordance with the Law and asked to work to make the best decision.
Iraís Reyes, a deputy for Movimiento Ciudadano, warned that the PRI and the PAN want to take control of justice and elect a prosecutor in order to achieve impunity.
“They are orchestrating a ‘coup d’état’ against the citizenry,” he said.
“Why are they doing all this? To elect by hand and without questioning our new prosecutor. The former candidate for Governor, Adrián de la Garza, linked to former Governor Rodrigo Medina, was registered, the power that the Deputies did not win in the elections they want to hand over to him in Congress.
Waldo Fernández, Deputy for Morena, said that among the candidates there are candidates linked to Governor Samuel García and the Citizen Movement, and others related to the PRI and the PAN.
“It is a pity that such an important position is a pachanga”, criticized the Morenista legislator, “the process was spoiled since the resignation of the Prosecutor (Gustavo Adolfo Guerrero) and the reforms they made in the Constitution to end the citizen system accompaniment”.
The PAN member Mauro Guerra defended the process and asked that the Congress work to designate the best profile.
“I respect the voices of those who criticize, but as president of the Congress I will make sure that the process is fulfilled, that it is legal and that it is in accordance with the law,” he said.
“Those who criticize only seek to discredit, we all want a Prosecutor who serves Nuevo León.”
Raúl Lozano, legislator of the Green Party, highlighted the plurality of registered profiles.
“We must not jump ahead in judging the 65 applicants, We have to decide on a technical person who knows the institution and public security,” he said.
The opinion of the PRI deputy, Lorena de la Garza, and Anylú Bendición, of the Bancada 4T, was requested, but they did not respond to the request for an interview.
