The announcement was broadcast on Twitter, where other users called for a boycott of the supermarket chain, which then separated from its shareholder.
Pedro Luis Martín Bringas, a shareholder in Soriana, said he was the leader of the so-called National Anti-AMLO Front (FRENAAA), which aims to achieve “the removal of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.”
The announcement, made in a tweet that circulated widely this Saturday, motivated a strong reaction on that social network, many of whose users recalled that during the campaign, Enrique Peña Nieto’s president was accused of dispersing, through electronic cards, resources of unknown origin, in support of the PRI candidate. Other tweeters called for a boycott of the supermarket chain.
This very Saturday, the supermarket chain withdrew from its shareholder and assured that the video was made and broadcast in a personal capacity.
“The video was made in his own personal capacity by Mr. Pedro Luis Martín Bringas and does not represent, in any sense, the opinion of the Soriana Organization. The recording has no relationship with the company, nor does it represent partisan interest, ”it was highlighted in a statement that circulated on social networks and has the Soriana logo, but that it was not possible to locate either on their social network accounts or on their electronic portals. .
In the recording, businessman Martín Bringas maintains that FRENAAA is made up of “People from all parties, from all walks of life”, but did not mention names of people or groups. This is the transcript:
“Good afternoon everyone. My name is Pedro Luis Martín Bringas and this afternoon I have accepted to be the leader of the National Front for the Removal of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
“I accepted it after deeply analyzing what are the objectives and the ways to achieve this objective. I believe that this group made up of public, not private, initiative is a group consisting of people from all parties, from all walks of life, at all levels, students, teachers, investors, entrepreneurs, and I think it is a group , that just as the coronavirus did not respect the rich, the poor, the students or the professionals, as well as the national front, we want FRENAAA to be the trigger so that before December 1, Mr. López Obrador will go home and save this country ”

If you are MEXICAN, democrat and anti-coup, let’s give Soriana a civic lesson that owes many misdeeds from Monex.
Let’s start a boycott throughout the Republic!
Let’s quarantine Soriana for her infectious coup virus.# BoycottASoriana #Soriana #sorianaNO pic.twitter.com/Rhfhkpya6N
