Mexico City Mayor Miguel Ángel Mancera denied helping former Mexico City Education Secretary Alejandra Barrales get elected as president of the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD).

At a press conference Friday, Mancera reminded journalists that he is not even a member of the PRD and has no plans to become one. He would not give a reason why he refuses to join the PRD, the party that he represents as mayor of the nation’s capital.

Mancera, who rose to prominence as head Mexico City prosecutor during the tenure of Marcelo Ebrard as mayor (2006-2012), was elected mayor of Mexico City in 2012 on the PRD ticket. His name has been floated as a possible PRD candidate for the 2018 presidential elections.

Michoacán Governor Silvano Aureoles Conejo, of the PRD, questioned Mancera’s refusal to join the PRD at a press conference Friday.

“I understand that it’s not an obligation that he join the party,” he said. “But for me, as a founding member of the PRD, it would be a good message if he were to join.”
