The Baja California governor said that he will abide by the resolution of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation even if he does not agree with it. Baja California Governor Jaime Bonilla Valdez said in an interview with Sofía Villalobos this Wednesday that he will abide by the resolution of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN), which declared the unconstitutionality of the so-called ‘Bonilla Law’, which extended his term of 2 to 5 years. Although he indicated that he does not agree with the Court’s ruling and that even if he is removed from the Government, Morena will continue to win in the state. “Those who thought that by removing Bonilla from the road they would regain the state are very wrong, Morena will win again,” said El Financiero Bloomberg TV, referring to the following elections for governor in the state. He added that since he began his term he has had strong levels of approval by citizens.
The SCJN declared on Monday unanimously by 11 votes the unconstitutionality of the so-called ‘Bonilla Law’. The Supreme Court considered that the reform that gave rise to said law is a “great fraud” post-electoral and the Constitution, in addition to representing an atypical illicit scheme devised by the Baja California Congress through a corrupting effect that manipulated the Magna Carta and the principles of democracy. The ministers established that the reform promoted by the Morena party in the Baja California Congress resulted in a “violation” of the electoral rights among them to vote and be voted, as well as the principles of democracy in Mexico, mainly the non-voting re-election.
Ángel Martín Junquera, attorney for the Governor of Baja California, had already announced on Monday that the state president would abide by the Court’s resolution. The president indicated that the state will follow the recommendations of the Ministry of Health for the reopening of economic activities, but will make adjustments according to the needs of the entity. “We have to go a lot with the United States, we cannot do what will be done in the center of the country. If there was a lot of pressure from the United States, there were letters from the Embassy for us to consider reopening as soon as possible,” Bonilla Valdez explained. He indicated that so far the state has enough ventilators to serve patients with COVID-19.
