According to Núñez Monreal, the leftist parties have enough numbers to win the presidency in 2018

The Labor Party (PT) in Mexico City held its State Congress in which they agreed to push for the formation of a leftist bloc that promotes the nomination of a single candidate for the 2018 elections.

At the PT Congress, where the party renewed its delegate organs, Elections and Security commissions and the political party structure, political commissioner Magdalena Núñez Monreal announced a plan of action.

In addition to promoting a fair social economy and solidarity, the faction hopes to speak to the citizens who “feel they have not been represented politically.”

She said that this lack of representation explains why 60 percent of citizens do not vote. On June 5, during the election of the Constituent Assembly, it rose to 75 percent.

They hope to construct a strong partisan team with particular goals: empowering women and combating gendered discrimination and segregation; investing in crime prevention; promoting sports and culture and recovering public spaces. Similarly, they hope to work towards civil participation.

According to Núñez Monreal, the leftist parties have enough numbers to win the presidency in 2018, but this will only be possible if all renounce their radicalism and prioritize the common interest of Mexicans.

She announced that they will begin to recruit members, with a goal of 80,000 citizens.
