Manuel Bartlett Díaz (born 1936) is the former Mexican Secretary of the Interior. Elected Senator for a 2000 - 2006 term, he became one of the most iron defenders of the state property on the power resources. On May 27, 2006, Bartlett declared that in view of the low possibility of PRI candidate to the Presidency, Roberto Madrazo winning and he would vote for Andrés Manuel López Obrador to avoid a right-wing victory. Madrazo and the PRI's national leader Mariano Palacios have condemned these declarations and announced the possible expulsion of Bartlett from the party, to which he responded that in that case he will proceed against both leaders PRI members.
Since the 2006 election, Bartlett has aligned himself with López Obrador and his Coalition for the Good of All. In 2012 he reentered national politics, being elected a senator for the left-wing Labor Party, in coalition with López Obrador's PRD.
