Turned into a rally, only shouts of protests and demands were heard, among them were those from “Mexicali Resiste”, Bureaucrats headed by Lázaro Mosqueda, among others, to which he said it was natural that there are many demands since during the last 30 years they had not been taken care of.

With a very emotional announcement he said he would not disappoint the people of Baja California, under the three main criteria which are: not lying, stealing or betraying the people, likewise he said he was grateful to the population that went to the polls for a real change and be part of the fourth transformation of Mexico.
The president-elect informed that there will be scholarships support for work and school for the entire student population of high schools and public universities that have limited resources, disabled people and a 100% increase to pensioned people and there will also be a creation of a Public University in the most marginalized areas, under the motto “the poor first”.
