Among those registered, it stands out that there were no alliances between the current deputy leadership and the dissident faction, which is why the intention of agreeing to support a candidate as the best opportunity to compete against the treasurer, Ricardo Aldana Prieto, considered as a candidate chosen by the former leader of the STPRM, Carlos Romero Deschamps.
For his part, Aldana Prieto, who for many years was the right arm of the former oil leader
Carlos Romero Deschamps, rejected that there is favoritism, as he said that he registered in the same way as the almost 20 candidates who went to the facilities of the Oil Union to contend for the general secretary.
Ricardo Aldana has been in the union organization for more than 40 years, and was linked to the Pemexgate case, and despite this, he is looking for an opportunity to lead the Petroleum Workers Union of the Mexican Republic, which has been without a general secretary for two years.
Cristina Alonso, from section 44 of Tabasco reported that she is officially a candidate for the General Secretariat of the STPRM, for which she called for the unity of all the oil tankers around a work project, for the benefit of the workers. (With information from María del Pilar Martínez).
