Citizen Victory Movement begins 2024 pre-candidacies process
By The Star Staff
The Citizen Victory Movement (MVC by its Spanish initials) began its pre-candidate process for the 2024 elections on Tuesday.
“Almost two years ago, we proposed to our base and to Puerto Rico to create a broad, inclusive Countrywide Alliance with a real possibility of defeating corrupt bipartisanship, where those of us who believe in a better country and in the urgent agenda promoted by the Citizen Victory Movement fit,” MVC Electoral Commissioner Lillian Aponte Dones said in a written statement. “We have developed a pre-candidate process where all the people who see in the Countrywide Alliance the ideal vehicle to carry out a candidacy for an electoral position can submit their request for consideration by our movement using an open and accessible process.”
The call period for pre-candidacies covers three phases:
1. Municipal applications from Aug. 15 to Sept. 15.
2. Legislative districts from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15.
3. National and strategic applications from Oct. 15 to Nov. 15.
After closing, a bid evaluation committee, made up of experts in political, social and legal fields, will review the applications. The final report will be presented in November of this year to the MVC National Assembly and the public, emphasizing transparency and democracy.
