XALAPA, Veracruz.- The Veracruz businessman Fidel Kuri Grajales registered this Saturday as an aspiring candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) to federal deputy for District 15 with head in Orizaba, Veracruz.
Kuri appeared before the Internal Processes Commission of the Veracruz State Steering Committee of the party, to comply with the requirement of registering as a candidate for the pre-candidate for the next elections in June.
He was accompanied by the main presidents of the municipal committees of District 15 and will compete for the third time for the position of federal representation.
The times Kuri Grajales showed up to compete for the position, he won in 2009 and 2015.
In case of obtaining the candidacy, this would be the return to political life of the businessman who also owns the franchise of the Red Sharks of Veracruz and that he maintains a lawsuit in the judicial institutions against the Mexican Soccer Federation (FMF).
Kuri Grajales, 58 years old, has been a federal deputy for the same 15th District with head in Orizaba on two occasions, always as a PRI standard-bearer.
After his first victory at the polls, Kuri Grajales held the deputation in San Lázaro from September 1, 2009 to August 31, 2012 and his second term was from September 1, 2015 to August 31, 2018.
After the disasters of 2018 in which the PRI practically disappeared from positions in the state, Kuri appears in his district leading the electoral preferences for federal deputies.
This portrays a failed Moreno administration and low productivity of the federal deputies of that party who arrived in San Lázaro in the wave that gave the victory in 2018 to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, but whose companions in different states did not give the results that the Voters searched, according to analysis of houses in pollsters such as Demoscopia Digital, Arias Consultores, Masive Caller, among others.
