However, the state Judiciary also requested the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE) to inform the Control Court of Miguel Ángel Yunes Márquez’s entry and exit from national territory to the United States and vice versa, for the period from January 1 to July 9, 2024. The judicial body requests this information and hopes it will be sent to the jurisdictional body within a period of 48 hours.

The Veracruz State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) accuses the Senator-elect of having allegedly falsified his effective residence in the port of Veracruz, in order to allow his competition in the 2021 election for the Municipal Presidency of Veracruz.

In these elections, the Electoral Tribunal of the state (TEV) decided to withdraw the candidacy of the PAN candidate, after the magistrates determined that he did not comply with the requirements of effective residence of more than three years.

“Miguel Ángel Yunes Márquez is hereby declared ineligible to run for mayor of Veracruz, as he does not meet the eligibility requirement of effective residence of at least three years,” they said.

Yunes was to represent the National Action Party (PAN), the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) and the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), and was later replaced by his wife Patricia Lobeira Rodríguez, who will govern the Mayor’s Office until 2025.

Before the local Electoral Court made the decision, Yunes Márquez said in a video that since “I announced my decision to fight to be mayor of Veracruz, the Government began a strategy to prevent it.”

Already in 2024, Yunes Márquez claimed that he is the victim of alleged political persecution. “They use the instruments of justice to persecute adversaries, not criminals,” he denounced.

“They are not accusing me of corruption, of illicit enrichment, of hiding assets, no: they accuse me of having indicated an address in Veracruz to register my candidacy for Mayor, where they claim I do not live,” he added.

In the statement, released on June 21 through his X account, formerly known as Twitter, the Senator-elect assured that he will face the accusations “with courage and determination, with the law in front of him,” and that he will not serve as a “trophy for Morena.”


The Yunes, through the PRI and the PAN, felt like they owned Veracruz until Morena won the state from them in 2018. With the intention of regaining total power, they financed a dirty media war against the Morena candidate, Rocío Nahle García, whom they accuse of alleged illicit enrichment, although it is they, the Yunes, who hid their wealth in a tax haven, according to the Panama Papers.

In this 2023-2024 electoral process, the same surname is present on the list of candidates for governor, the Senate and deputies: the Yunes. Only the financial operator son, Omar, is missing. Regardless of their weariness among the people of Veracruz, they continue to aspire to immunity and further enrichment at the expense of public money.

“Imagine (more than) 35 years dining, eating and drinking with the Yunes, deciding for all the people of Veracruz, there is already a natural wear and tear; it seems that they do not want to see it. The strategy was to try to discredit the professional career and the fact that Rocío Nahle is not from Veracruz. They say that historically she is the candidate with the highest number of complaints, 38, because they are the ones they filed against her during this period through a third party, his last name is (Arturo) Castagné, he is the puppet operator very much in the style of Miguel Ángel,” said the director of the program in an interview. The Veracruz JourneyTulio Moreno, coordinator of the recently published book The Yunes Clan.

After the second debate between candidates for governor, the patriarch Miguel Ángel Yunes Linares, former governor (2016-2018) and director of ISSSTE under Felipe Calderón, warned in an aggressive message that his family “has been in Veracruz for a century and a half” so no one “will expel them,” as Nahle said she would do if she won the elections. He is acting as a substitute in the Senate for his son Miguel Ángel Yunes Márquez.

“The lady is ignorant, the lady not only doesn’t know about the history of Veracruz, because she is not from here, she is from Zacatecas, she has no connection with Veracruz. She also doesn’t know about the history of the world. The last time I read about someone who said that he would expel a family or that he would expel a racial group was Hitler in Germany, who wanted to expel the Jews. She doesn’t know the history of the Yunes family, ours is called roots, ours is not a coincidence. We have deep roots in Veracruz that will cost her a lot of work… She will not become Governor, but if she were, it would cost her a terrible, tremendous job to dig up the roots of the Yunes family to expel us,” warned the now PAN member in a video posted on his social networks.

Appealing to xenophobia, the PRI-PAN-PRD candidate José Yunes Zorrilla also emphasizes that Nahle was not born in Veracruz but in Zacatecas, even though she has been living in the state for decades. Likewise, national right-wing media such as Latinus, Reforma y The universal They have published during this electoral process that the former Secretary of Energy has houses, apartments and even gas stations in Veracruz, Nuevo León and the United States.

The now elected Governor pointed out that these fake news published in the national press come directly from the “Yunes clan”, she has proven with documents that she only has four properties and has had the support of the presidential candidate Claudia Sheinbaum at various rallies.
