Mexico City, June 6 (However) .– Minutes before nine o’clock this Sunday night, Mario Delgado Carrillo placeholder image, national president of Brunette, he assured between applause and jubilation of the sympathizers that his is once again the leading political force in the country.
“It is absolutely clear that in Mexico there is a majority of the people,” he said from the Hilton hotel in Alameda Central in Mexico City.
“We also won Sonora with Alfonso Durazo and we won Baja California with Marina del Pilar,” said Delgado Carrillo.
“The 4T continues to advance throughout the national territory,” celebrated the national leader.

In 2018, the Together We’ll Make History Coalition had a percentage of 42.3 percent of the vote, which gave the majority of the Chamber of Deputies. This day the Morena-PT-Verde coalition is expected to exceed 45 percent, which ratifies “the majority of the people,” as the legend of the canvas and t-shirts with which the morenistas already celebrate.

The Mexican midterm elections, considered the largest in the country’s history, concluded after a day of relative calm despite some acts of violence in various parts of the country.
