THE CAPITOL – The elected delegation of the Citizen Victory Movement announced on Wednesday, the appointment of rotating spokespersons as part of its legislative management.
“The spokesperson is a great responsibility and we understand that each of the people in our delegation has the capacity to assume it. We adopt a rotating model because that represents the equity, diversity and participation that characterizes us as a Movement, ”explained Rivera Lassén, Senator-elect and president of Victoria Ciudadana in written communication.
He explained that before the close start of the nineteenth Legislative Assembly, Victoria Ciudadana opted for spokespersons that will rotate during the four-year period in periods of two years. As of the swearing in, Ms. Ana Irma Rivera Lassen in the Senate and Ms. Mariana Nogales Molinelli in the House of Representatives will initially act as spokespersons for the delegation during the 2021-2022 period. For their part, Professor Rafael Bernabe and José Bernardo Marquez will act as alternate spokespersons in their respective bodies.
Regarding the start of the two women in the delegation as proprietary spokespersons, Nogales made reference to Victoria Ciudadana’s commitment to gender equality. “This is a determination that falls on each delegation and our Movement is committed to increasing the representation of women and their demands. Definitely, that is a priority, ”said Nogales, Representative elected by accumulation.
The delegation has already verbally communicated to the incoming presidents their decision, which they will formalize once the legislative session begins on January 11, 2020. “The workers who demand labor justice, the communities that demand environmental justice, the people who calls for auditing of debt and social justice, women who demand equity and LGBTQ + people who demand inclusivity; each of these groups can be sure that we will be tireless spokespersons for their causes, ”added Bernabe, Senator elected by accumulation.
According to the rotating mechanism adopted by the delegation, the roles in the spokespersons would be exchanged for the period 2023-2024. At that time, Bernabe and Márquez will serve as spokespersons in the Senate and Chamber, respectively, while Rivera Lassén and Nogales will serve as alternate spokespersons.
“We inform the public that we are already drafting legislation in tune with our programmatic commitments, to promote transparency, economic development, better living conditions and access to essential services such as health and education. Those are the priorities reiterated by the citizens and, therefore, they will also be ours throughout the four-year term, “added Márquez, Representative elected by Accumulation.
