Mexico City Mayor Miguel Ángel Mancera Espinosa said that even though he considers himself a leftist, he is not a member of the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD). He said that the left should establish a progressive political platform leading up to the 2018 presidential elections.

“Because of this I am unaffiliated, because I believe that the platform has to be independent from political parties,” he said. “That’s the only way it can be achieved. I imagine the platform having visible leaders and also regular people supporting it.”

He made these statements during the second dialogue session of “Mancera for the City we Want,” during the Progressive Youth forum at the Mexico City Interactive Future Center.

Mancera said that the political platform must bring together diverse actors, with ideas that strengthen civil liberties, citizen participation, democracy and initiatives that instead of excluding bring together different ways of thinking to strengthen a left front that is appealing to everyone.

“In other words, the equation is changing; today political parties must respond to the people, and I believe that the initiative should first come from the people and then the party,” he said.

During the forum moderated by María Fernanda Olvera Cabrera, director of the Mexico City Youth Institute (Injuve CDMX), Mancera spoke with youth from different organizations about his vision for the left and other topics of interest, such as the environment and the Mexico City Constitution.
