The leaders of the PAN and PRD in Hidalgo agreed that they have a voice and a vote in state politics, and now that they are taken out of their lethargy and comfort, they become brave as if they were true opposition.
It turns out that over the weekend the councilors of the State Electoral Institute met to define the multi-member spaces, which are 12, to the local Congress; that is, after the elections of June 6, where 18 deputies from Hidalgo were voted, the rest are defined according to the percentages of votes obtained by the parties.
The anger came because neither the PAN nor the PRD – the rest do not count for practical purposes – they have to share the political spoils and it is attractive.
A deputy of the Congress of Hidalgo is a popular representative who plays an extremely important role not only in the approval of laws, but is a permanent asset in the Chamber of Deputies, has a presence in municipalities, manages a budget, can influence decisions of government and the more allies it has, the better dividends it gets.
Without a presence in the Legislature, PAN and PRD are condemned to oblivion. Although not all is lost, each one will have their respective deputy who were the ones who won in alliance with the PRI: that of Huichapan, Rodrigo Castillo, and that of Metepec, Miguel Martínez.
Both characters will have to carry what remains of the prestige of their respective parties and will therefore be leaders of their respective benches.
On the other hand, Morena and allies already dream of a block of up to 20 deputies for the year in which the governor’s election will take place. Indeed, it seems more like a dream than reality, but they say it costs nothing. In this case, it will cost the people of Hidalgo too much if there are no quick agreements and that the deputies who arrive do not make the mistakes they are leaving.
