TEPJF confirms Javier Corral’s multi-member candidacy for the Senate – El Sol de México

The tricolor accused that the former governor of Chihuahua has dual nationality, Mexican and American, and had not renounced his American nationality at the time of being registered as a candidate, so his registration had to be void.

In this regard, Judge Felipe Fuentes Barrera, author of the draft resolution, indicated that although Javier Corral was born in the United States, with which he became a citizen of that country, in 1991 he renounced the rights granted to him by the North American country. .

On the other hand, it has been proven that in 1991 the candidate renounced the protection of any foreign power as well as any right granted to him by the states that recognize him as their national,” indicates the magistrate’s project.

Javier Corral joined the team of Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo, presidential candidate of the Let’s Keep Making History coalition (Morena-PT-PVEM), in December 2023; Currently he is in charge of the anti-corruption strategy of the presidential standard-bearer’s government plan.
