For the culture of legality

The demand to break the law, for the good of society, is unacceptable. In other words, inadmissible that the will of God be done, but on the oxen of my friend. Assuming that the culture of legality is a condition of any democratic society, these are its elementary rules, therefore, it supposes the acceptance, promotion and defense of the rule of law. This involves not only requiring that institutions be guided by strict adherence to the law, but also that citizens’ actions be circumscribed by those principles.

Within the legislative branch, we are committed to respecting, promoting and defending the Constitution and the laws that flow from it.

In the coming days, the State Congress will elect the members of the Institute for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders and Journalists, its Director General and the Advisory Board; To achieve this moment, the corresponding call has been made, supported by the law that governs this process, establishing the legal requirements that all applicants must meet.

It is worth remembering the obvious: the requirements must be met. Precisely for this reason, in strict compliance with the constitutionality that must guide the definitions of Congress and the respective statutory law, the Constitutional Issues and Human Rights Commissions of the 64th Legislature were led by the principle of legality established in Articles 14 and 16 of the Political Constitution of the State of Sinaloa, by not allowing the violation of the human right to equality, in the designation of those who aspire to lead and be administrators of the said Institute.

Compliance with legal requirements is the responsibility of the applicants. Out of four candidates for General Management, one of them did not respect the law, so he could not pursue the next phases of the appeal. Legally it is correct. The trajectory and the profiles, by reviewing them, correspond to other moments of the process.

The regulatory law of the institute in question is clear. Article 63, section IV, establishes as a condition for being appointed general manager to have a minimum seniority of five years with a bachelor’s degree, among others.

The aforementioned law was approved by Congress based on the initiative presented by a group of journalists and human rights defenders, which contained as a requirement a bachelor’s degree with a history of ten years, once approved, it was reduced to five. This initiative was signed by María de los Ángeles Moreno, Alejandro Sicairos, Luis Alberto Díaz, Óscar Loza Ochoa, among others. And what a pleasure to have this initiative.

In the Congress of Sinaloa, there is an equal floor, that is to say that the criterion to measure everyone is legality. Asking that legality be violated is an inadmissible act.

There are no preferences. The Juarista principle is unavoidable:

Outlaw, nothing, above the law, nobody!
