Mexico.- The senator of Morena, Ricardo Monreal Avila, considered as a “gesture of wide plurality” on the part of the president Andrés Manuel López Obrador the fact that he is going to include the outgoing governors of Nayarit and Sinaloa in his government, Antonio Echevarría and Quirino Ordaz Coppel, respectively, in his government project.

At a press conference, the leader of the National Regeneration Movement bench in the Upper House of the Union Congress said that, although in “human sentiment”, the cousin (an alliance between Morena and the PRI) is desirable, on the contrary, “in politics it is undesirable.”
This after being asked if the integration of the two state executives who are active in parties opposed to the icing will in turn lead to a resurgence of the self-proclaimed “cousin“.
Monreal Ávila emphasized the fact that López Obrador has great esteem and respect for both Antonio Echevarría and Quirino Ordaz Coppel, which is why he was not surprised that he invited them to be part of his federal work team.
In the specific case of the governor of Nayarit, the also president of the Political Coordination Board (Jucopo), noted that “both of them were friends before, in the case of Toño Echevarría from his father. The first time that Toño Echevarría Grande was governor, he had a relationship of appreciation and affection with their family there in Nayarit. “
The Veracruz legislator recognized that although the majority of Morena supports the decisions that President López Obrador has made in relation to Echevarría and Ordaz Coppel, these invitations have caused a real controversy within the party.
