The Archbishop of Monterrey, Cardinal Francisco Robles Ortega, has called on Mexico’s political parties to exercise their service “with true authenticity,” and he called on citizens to evaluate each proposal and verify that it is carried out.
Speaking to the Mexican daily El Porvenir, the cardinal said that political parties should work to make their proposals as appropriate and “positive for the community as possible,” and thus strive to improve the lives of all. He said any proposal made should be done calmly and with objectivity.
Likewise, he called on Mexicans to become more involved in political issues and to conscientiously evaluate the record of public officials to determine whether or not to vote for them again.
“The people in general should be more involved, in the sense of being interested in learning about the proposals, getting to know the candidates and demanding results,” the cardinal said.
