The worst case scenario towards the creation of the new Constitution of Mexico City is that one third of the deputies of the Constituent Assembly are Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) members, explained Raúl Flores García, chairman of the Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD) in Mexico City.

That risk leads to a return to the authoritarianism that existed before democracy was achieved in the Federal District, stressed the deputy coordinator of the PRD.

During the “Constituent Proposal for an Inclusive City” forum, organized by Meeting Point, Youth Left and New Left, the PRD leader said that the Constitution in Mexico City should consider the rights of three to four generations to come.

“It would be worrisome if there was an authoritarian regression, where women cannot make their own decisions for their bodies, and now we see with Morena a conservative discourse that can’t pass laws at present. Now the challenge is whether or not individual rights have reached the height of a ‘progressive city’, repeating the record that the left-leaning youth are afraid of.”

In turn, the PRD deputy Elena Segura said that we are facing a great opportunity to participate and achieve the missing rights with a vision for the future, to see social rights that still need to be included in the law.
