PRI Accuses Margarita Zavala of 'Inexplicable Enrichment'

César Camacho Quiroz, the leader of the Revolutionary Institutional Party (PRI) in the Chamber of Deputies, admitted that the PRI’s accusations against presumptive presidential candidate Margarita Zavala are part of a “political strategy” to end the “political impunity” enjoyed by the former first lady. Camacho Quiroz demanded that Zavala present a declaration of income and assets that is required for politicians.

Margarita Zavala will seek the nomination of the right-wing National Action Party (PAN) for the 2018 presidential elections, but has stated that she may run as an independent if she fails to receive the backing of the PAN. She is married to former President Felipe Calderón, who ruled Mexico from 2006 to 2012.

Camacho Quiroz had previously accused Zavala of “inexplicable enrichment” during the mandate of her husband.

He argues that Zavala is required to make a declaration of income and assets as someone aspiring to hold public office.

“This is a political demand, it has to do with our conviction that those who have aspirations to hold elective office can not continue to enjoy political impunity,” he said in an interview at the Legislative Palace Thursday.

Camacho Quiroz clarified that although his accusations and demands do have a political character, they will become legal demands at some point in the future, as he claimed that the PRI has evidence against her.

“All of us who have public responsibilities need to be understand that we work in a display case,” he said.
