He added that it was important in the sharing of history, identity and common destiny of Mexicans.
Camacho Quiroz said that this celebration should mark a milestone in contemporary history.
“We begin the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Mexican constitution of October 31, 1917, which was issued as an expression of government and to build an entity faithful to the principles and fundamental norms of the federal constitution of February 5, 1917.”
Roa Sánchez said that in the coming months there will be different academic, sports and cultural activities held, with the purpose of integrating society around the transcendental meaning of the Constitution.
The program is expected to begin in February. In addition,UAEM works that highlight the republican vocation will be published.
Camacho Quiroz and Roa Sánchez recognized the will of rector Jorge Olvera to be part of the celebrations of this commemoration and indicated that together they will offer the academic community conferences to reflect on the democratic life of the country and contribute to the legacy wanted for future generations.
