Governor wanted

Job advertisement: Important office located at Mexico City's Zócalo Square will require in September a woman or a man who occupy the position of governor. It is necessary to comply with three requirements: 1. Know the operation of all areas of the capital's government. 2. Do not hesitate when making decisions. 3. Have the full confidence of the current head of government, Miguel Ángel Mancera. "It is useless to show up without these requirements." As there is no term that does not end and no debt that is not paid, Mr. Miguel will leave the office in a few months to embark on his way to the Presidency of the Republic and a relief will be required. They tell us that there are a few people who would be in the semifinals to obtain the position of interim chief of government. They are: secretary of Government, Patricia Mercado; secretary of Social Development, José Ramón Amieva, and legal counselor, Manuel Granados. Of course, in order to get the job, total availability is also required, and in return, benefits above the law are offered. Who will get the job?

PRI-PAN negotiation?

In the last few hours there have been talks of a possible negotiation between conservative National Action Party (PAN) and ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). We are assured that the arrangement would make the people of conservative National Action Party (PAN) accept the victory of ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) in the State of Mexico, and in exchange, they would “hand in” Coahuila to PAN. However, we are assured that both from the presidential residence, Los Pinos, as well as the leadership of PRI, the instruction is to fight until the last breath for what they assure were legal victories of Alfredo del Mazo and Miguel Riquelme. We are told that they also consider these results non-negotiable since they are thought to be leverage for the 2018 elections.

“Chuchos” celebrate with Moreno Valle!

We are told that Miguel Ángel Mancera, Alejandra Barrales and Hector Serrano are celebrating since they got good outcomes from the last electoral process. In the State of Mexico, with Héctor Bautista, leader of ADN, they defended the proposal to nominate Juan Zepeda, against “Los Chuchos”. Among the triumphs they are celebrating are also the governorship of Nayarit, state where they claim to support Antonio Echevarria (who is not yet known whether he won or not) and Guadalupe Acosta Naranjo, with whom they have a political agreement. While in Veracruz they won several municipalities in alliance with the governor of the entity, Miguel Ángel Yunes. We are told that “Los Chuchos” were only observed smiling at a restaurant table they shared with former governor Rafael Moreno Valle, with whom they are building agreements for 2018.

Observers fail AMLO

The president of far-left National Regeneration Party (MORENA), Andrés Manuel López Obrador, wasn't able to show figures on Sunday of the alleged advantage of his candidate in the State of Mexico, Delfina Gómez, because he could not have representation in 100 percent of the polling places. Of all those who swore to defend the votes for MORENA, 3 thousand 926 were not present or could not act as representatives in the 108 thousand 605 stations installed. That's why Mr. Andrés had to use his followers in social networks, which he asked to photograph the sheets with the results of each polling place. However, far-left National Regeneration Party (MORENA) was not the only one who suffered from these absences, since 8 thousand 163 people also failed the National Electoral Institute (INE), which trained them as field officers in the 4 entities, but in the end they just didn't show up.
