“We reject the violent acts and acts of vandalism that were allegedly carried out by members of the coalition that aligns the Morena, Labor Party, and Green Party parties in the Tulum municipality,” said Martínez Simón.

The PAN affirmed that in the municipalities and districts where the election took place in peace, calm, and in a democratic environment, the coalition has accepted the result of the PREP.

“However, in Tulum, we are facing what we consider a great fraud, where the candidate Marciano Dzul clearly saw how ostentatious and the waste of economic resources, so we will ask the electoral authorities to investigate him for the possibility of exceeding the top of the campaign ”, declared Martínez Simón.

The state leaders of the coalition parties that supported Víctor Mas Tah commented that it is known to all that there is an open investigation in the Financial Intelligence Unit and in the Attorney General’s Office against Marciano Dzul for the alleged crime of use of resources of illicit origin, and despite this, it has been allowed to participate in the electoral process.

“The four parties, PAN, PRI, PRD and “Confianza por Quintana Roo” have decided that we will defend the votes of the citizens and we will go to court to challenge the election,” they stressed.
