After Pedro Salmerón declined as a candidate for Panamanian ambassador, following allegations of sexual harassment against him, Denise Maerker attacked the current president of the republic, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, for defending him.

It was through her Twitter account where the communicator indicated that the president has repeatedly positioned himself in favor of officials or politicians who have been singled out as abusers or violators of women.

“As a woman I mean that it shocks me to listen to a president who shelters, protects and shows enormous empathy for Pedro Salmerón and Salgado Macedonior. I don’t hear a word about women who are victims of gender-based violence,” the communicator wrote.

He also pointed out some of the arguments that AMLO has used to justify these characters in the political sphere.

“In the case of Pedro Salmerón, because there are no complaints. In the case of Salgado Macedonio, because there were no sentences, but there were complaints. The president sends a message to women: He does not see us or hear us,” said Maerker.

In addition, he condemned that the attitude of the constituent was a sign of the little intention he has to listen to the demands of women and victims of violence.

“What the president has done in the Salgado Macedonio and Pedro Salmerón cases is face a movement that calls for dignified treatment, humane and respectful to women. And he doesn’t listen to women,” he said.

It should be remembered that a few days ago, Panama rejected Pedro Salmerón as ambassador, however, in order to resolve the rejection, López Obrador expressed his interest in presenting a proposal to include him in the presidential team as their personal adviser in the preparation of a text on Fraud in Mexico.

I appreciate it very much and I consider him a first-rate historian, of the best in the country. A scholar of history in Mexico (…) We are going to find a way to use Pedro’s knowledge, “he deepened.

“(…) I would like it to be my adviser to write a story about electoral fraud in Mexico for the presidency. It would be great,” he commented. the morning of this February 1.

Meanwhile, the alternate senator, Jesusa Rodriguez, will be proposed as a new candidate for ambassador of Mexico in Panama.

The Doctor of History has been accused of at least eight women to commit acts of sexual harassment – some since 2019 – before academic institutions such as the National Autonomous University of Mexico (ONE), the Autonomous Technological Institute of Mexico (ITAM), and AMLO’s own party, Brunette.

However, the position of the Chief Executive has been clear: without a formal complaint before the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR), no further investigation will be carried out, let alone actions to address the case.
