Among the distractions at hand, not to mention the country’s serious problems, perhaps the least harmful and one of the most entertaining is what Mexicans call futurism.
The term refers to speculations, forecasts, gossip from a good source and thoughtful analysis about who will be the future candidates for the presidency of the country.
I will call “cabals” to all these illustrious and aided forms typical of the genre of futurism and of those who incur it.
I begin by saying that the size and difficulty of the game have changed a lot since the times of the hegemony of the PRI, the time when the game had its classical period, in the manner of our pre-Hispanic civilizations.
It consisted then, in the second half of the 20th century, in guessing who would be the presidential candidate of the PRI.
Deciphering that mystery sexenally was knowing who would be the next President of the Republic, because, although there were opposition parties, it was impossible for any of them to win. The hegemony of the PRI was truly hegemonic.
The game has become more complicated with democracy and has become more entertaining, since now it consists of guessing who will be the presidential candidates not of one but of all the parties capable of nominating someone.
In principle, there are six parties, all of which exist. By order of foundation, as they appear on the electoral ballots, they are: PAN (founded in 1939), PRI (1946), PVEM (1986), PT (1990), PRD (1989), Movimiento Ciudadano (1998) and Morena (2011). ).
The first thing the cabals say is that not all of these parties will have candidates. The PT, the PRD and the Green Party will seek to ally with stronger parties, which would leave only four possible contenders: those of Morena, PAN, PRI and Movimiento Ciudadano.
An additional cabal maintains that the PRI and the PAN will repeat their 2021 alliance with the PRD in the presidential elections, while Morena will repeat his with the PT and the Green Party.
This would leave only three possible candidates: that of Morena / PT / PVM, that of PAN / PRI / PRD and that of Movimiento Ciudadano. This is the breakout board for the cabal around 2024. Cabale you.
