Former candidate for governor of Oaxaca Benjamín Robles informed Ángel Ávila, the president of the Democratic Revolution Party’s (PRD) National Council, about his resignation from the party ranks. Robles said that the political institution is being kidnapped by a minority that has made a pact with the established powers and is selling itself to the highest bidders.
“I do not agree with the minority that today leads the party and which imposes their will on relevant decisions. It is a minority that has made a pact with the established powers and not the people. It has abandoned its principles and surrendered to the hands of those who bid the most money,” said Robles.
He said that despite promoting agreements and changes within the party and proposing democratic mechanisms to ensure its rescue as a political option for citizens, now it is clear that the doors of the PRD are closed to democracy and institutional change.
