The opposition presidential candidate, Xóchitl Gálvez Ruiz, has announced that she will hold a morning press conference similar to the one that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has led since he began his administration. This move has sparked a response from the leader of the Executive, who expressed his thoughts on the matter during ‘La Mañanera’ this Friday.
López Obrador indicated that he was aware of Gálvez’s proposal and mentioned that she has the right to have her own information space. He also made a lighthearted comment about the timing of her press conference, suggesting that it may be because some people don’t believe she gets up early. The president did not mention Gálvez by name, but he recalled a similar situation when he was head of Government of the then Federal District, where the conservative bloc also held their own press conferences at the same time.
He emphasized that Gálvez’s proposal is good because it guarantees the right to information, debates, presenting different points of view, and the right to dissent. Gálvez, on the other hand, announced that her morning press conference, called the ‘Morning of Truth’, will take place at her campaign house in Mexico City, starting on January 29 at 10:00 a.m. and concluding on the last day of February. The purpose of this press conference is to provide a platform to combat fake news and present contrasting data from the National Palace.
The president expressed his support for Gálvez’s initiative and made a joke about the timing of her press conference. He also mentioned that a similar situation occurred when he was in a similar position, and he hopes that Gálvez’s press conference will last longer than the previous attempt by the conservative bloc. Gálvez, on the other hand, is fine-tuning the details of her press conference and has specified that it will only take place during the inter-campaign period of the federal process of 2024.
