3. REPROCHE. I stay with Héctor Astudillo’s message in the PRI’s tribute to René Juárez. Facing the one who blocked the way, Alejandro Moreno, and looking straight at him, Astudillo told him: René was not an upstart, he was not false, First he was a leader and then president of his party, which Moreno has never been.
