Félix Salgado Macedonio continues to add fuel to the fire.
In this case, the fire is his candidacy for the Guerrero government and the firewood is the attacks against the electoral authority (INE) that has to decide whether to let him stand in the elections or definitively close the door to being governor.
In his personal crusade to establish himself as a social fighter and a persecuted politician, Salgado Macedonio has personified in the seven INE advisers who voted against him, his main opponents in the battle for the polls.
This Monday at the gates of the electoral institute, the politician has escalated his threats while agitating his followers against the presiding counselor, Lorenzo Córdova.
“Wouldn't the people of Mexico like to know where Lorenzo Córdova lives?
Would you like to know what your black sheet house is like?
He does not know what we are fighting for in Guerrero, ”he said from a stage to dozens of followers who accompany him in his sit-in until the electoral authority returns his candidacy.
"The INE is going to fall!" Their supporters have responded.
On stage, a huge black coffin with the name "Lorenzo" and the inscription "Count the days, rat, demon", accompanied Salgado Macedonio.
On one side, a wreath of flowers next to the face of Córdova and the councilor Ciro Murayama, under the legend: “Councilors of the PRIAN”, completed the gloomy altar.
"The INE died," said the morenista and later exclaimed, "Lorenzo died," in reference to Córdova.
On stage, present, were also the national president of Morena, Mario Delgado, and the top leader of the group in Guerrero, Marcial Ruiz Saldaña.
Two weeks ago, the INE canceled Salgado's list to the governor of Guerrero for not presenting his expense report during the pre-campaign as established by the Law. The former candidate appealed the decision before the Electoral Tribunal of the Federal Judicial Power (TEPJF) that He returned the case to the INE so that in the next few hours they could decide on the political future of Salgado Macedonio.
Meanwhile, the licensed senator nicknamed The Fenceless Bull remains on the rampage.
"The INE has died for us, but it may be that it resuscitates," he said, referring to the pending ruling.
For his part, the leader of Morena, Mario Delgado, has assured that both the cancellation of the candidacy of Salgado Macedonio in Guerrero and that of Raúl Morón Orozco in Michoacán fragments democracy in Mexico.
“The INE advisers obey the corruption mafia.
They were put by the PRI, the PAN and the PRD when they were distributed to the councilors by quotas and friends, they act like that because they have no principles.
We have the authority to demand impartial action because the majority of Morena did not put their friends as advisers, ”Delgado told his followers.
The leader maintains that if the INE removes Salgado's candidacy "they would be against the people of Mexico", since according to him, the politician "has more than 50% of the voting preferences" for the elections on June 6. .
In response to the accusations, Lorenzo Córdova has declared that he will not enter into a confrontation with Félix Salgado Macedonio or with any political actor, because the INE is not a counterpart in the electoral contest, but an "impartial referee who does not allow himself to be intimidated" .
After the serious threats on Monday, the Secretary of the Interior has appealed through their social networks to maintain the differences "within the law and with mutual respect."
As Secretary of the Interior I make an energetic call to maintain the differences within the legality and mutual respect, both for the institutions and for public servants.

Salgado Macedonio has continued his attack against electoral officials, according to him, his only impediment to being governor.
“They know the laws but they don't comply with them.
They are protected to earn more than the president.
Who violates the law deserves respect?
These gentlemen have trampled on democracy in Mexico and now they want to trample on the people of Guerrero, ”he charged again.
"Don't scratch the bull's eggs because they are going to find us."
The former candidate ensures that if he does not return his candidacy to continue his electoral career, there will be no elections in Guerrero.
Either they vote for him or no one will vote.
