With 36 votes for and six abstentions, local Congress deputies named Bernardo González Garza as president of the Monterrey Municipal Council, who will be in charge of the municipality for 60 days, while extraordinary elections take place to elect a mayor .
It took six days for the legislators to reach an agreement and name Gonzalez after an attempt to leave Alberto Palomino, director of the Delegation Synergy.
An hour earlier, Bernardo González presented himself at the local congress to report on the issue of security and came with the Secretary General of the Government, Manuel González.
However, until 19:30, when the Steering Committee resumed the permanent session, it approved by majority vote the list of advisers led by the former Secretary of State.
Soon the issue was piled in the plenary, where the Citizen Movement bank abstained from the appointment and demanded that everything be left at the last minute.
Luis Donaldo Colosio, the coordinator of the aforementioned group, criticized the fact that the approved opinion was the product of simulations and imputation without being defined as responsible for his allegations.
"The final result of this opinion was more the result of last-minute simulations or impositions than after many days of intense debate, proposals, dialogue, consensus, eventually in the last minute and after consensus unanimously many times, I have to get this last list, "he said.
Francisco Cienfuegos, the PRI leader, defended Gonzalez's appointment, making sure he is a person who will take the city's leadership seriously and behave impartially in the extraordinary election process.
"What we ask is for there to be seriousness, there is professionalism, someone has the roots of the city and know how to build impartially what people in Monterrey demand," he said.
Similarly, PAN de la Fuente, the coordinator of the PAN, stressed that they agreed with the proposal because Bernardo González is a profile that will detach from the electoral process and provide legal certainty to the Monterrey residents.
"We want citizens to be served and the Council does not focus on the electoral process, we hope and we will join all this proposal of the governing commission," he said.
After approval, Marco González, the president of the local congress, appointed a special commission to receive and take Bernardo González's protest as the new president of the municipal council.
Eventually, the president of the Congress instructed Bernardo that at 10:00 a delegation of deputies accompanied him in Cabildo de Monterrey to make the protest for the other members of the Council.
Some members of the Council are: Liliana Flores Benavides, the first trade union counselor; María Algeria Puente Rodríguez, fifth alderman municipal councilor; Ranulfo Martínez Valdez, sixth owner of the Alderman municipal council; Edgar Romo García, tenth owner of the alderman council; and Greece Benavides Flores, as municipal councilor of the twenty-third. *

After making the protest as chairman of the Monterrey Municipal Council, Bernardo González Garza offered to serve with transparency.
According to González Garza, he resigned from the Public Security Secretariat at 4:00 am and repeatedly did not refer to the deputy or deputy who proposed it for this two-month mission.
On the other hand, he indicated that he would meet with each of the current municipal secretaries to make a decision on who was later and who was leaving.
In addition, he said, one of his commitments is that the extraordinary election process that will take place on December 16 will be achieved with the utmost calmness.
