The government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has already been plagued by several conflicts with members of the administration and by important resignations in the cabinet In the less than two years of government that he has been in until now,
In one of his latest articles, Mexican journalist Carlos Loret de Mola recovers some of the strongest critical comments made by some political figures who were part of the self-proclaimed Fourth Transformation (Q4), but they decided to withdraw from their positions.
The most recent case is that of Víctor Manuel Toledo Manzur, who was in charge of the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat), but he decided to depart from the position at the beginning of September, just a few weeks after the leak of an audio in which he criticized the government of López Obrador.
In a video that he shared through his social networks To promote her new column, Loret de Mola read some of the strongest statements made by some of the Q4 officials who decided to resign from their position.
« This government is full of contradictions … it is ignorant, indolent and is sitting idle in the face of the economic crisis … it is inhuman... wants to turn us into a caged country … They are not my ideas, they are textual quotes from those who were members of the circle closest to Andrés Manuel López Obrador and that they have decided to step aside ”, says the journalist in the video.

The opinion piece, published yesterday in the Washington Post, recovers the statements of the former Secretary of the Treasury, Carlos Manuel Urzúa Macías, who in his resignation letter, in July of last year, accused of multiple « discrepancies » with the administration, and of « public policy decisions without sufficient support. »
Urzúa has publicly accused the head of the Office of the Presidency, Alfonso Romo, of taking advantage of his position for his own benefit and use the information obtained in the position to favor their investments. Victor Toledo has also expressed accusations against Romo, considering that he used his political influence to protect the interests of certain important business groups in the country.
Another character who has criticized the López Obrador administration after having participated in it is Germán Martínez Cázares, than was director of the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) for only six months, before presenting his incendiary resignation letter in May of last year.
The text of the Mexican journalist also recovers the case of lto Dr. Asa Cristina Laurell, Whoever it was Undersecretariat for Integration and Development of the Ministry of Health who He submitted his resignation with several complaints and accusations towards the officials in charge of fighting the pandemic.
On the other hand appears the case of former Secretary of Communications and Transportation, Javier Jiménez Espriú, who resigned in July this year after opposing a presidential decree that promoted the involvement of the Armed Forces in the administration of customs and ports.

The criticisms in social networks of the Moreno deputy Porfirio Muñoz Ledo are also mentioned, who put the presidential sash on López Obrador on the day of his inauguration, but currently especially questions the immigration policy of repression that the country has adopted following the requests of the United States and President Donald Trump.
“The x-ray of the government made by those who left not only contrasts with the president’s triumphant speech, but also dismantles it, leaves it on display as mere talk in an administration that is rapidly advancing towards a general crisis, without wanting to rectify the course and bordering on the resignation of those who dare to raise a voice of self-criticism« Loret de Mola concludes in his column.
