CITY OF MEXICO.
Claudia Ruiz Massieu, who was ratified this afternoon as PRI's national president, stressed that the path that the party will take is not simple, but the most difficult struggle in many decades; although he made it clear that the defeat in the elections was painful, but not definitive.
We are in a permanent campaign, we have months of hard work, effort and sacrifice for us; I can not promise you that the road will be easy or comfortable; on the contrary, I assure you that it will be the toughest fight we have had in many decades, "he said.
Although he provides a complex path, Ruiz Massieu assured that the PRI saves "the power, the energy, the spirit and the will to renew itself".
What happens to our party is entirely in our hands and no one else, or our opponents or circumstances. We will make this trip together, "he added.
He emphasized that the PRI has to deal with a scenario that he has never experienced before: being at the same time an opposition against the executive and a minority party in the legislative power.
It is not necessary to point out to the opponent the search for explanations, to find answers that we must turn around to see ourselves, as a party we are all co-responsible; It must be said, we did not know how to defend our party, we forgot our origin when we left political action from the base, we favored pragmatism about our principles, we let ourselves be seduced by power, "he explained.
