AMLO takes it slow with Monreal 

In his unique style and pace – slowly – Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) continues jerking around Ricardo Monreal, the head of the Cuauhtémoc borough, regarding the meeting between them – before Mr, Ricardo decides to partner with the power mafia. According to our sources, the meeting Mr. AMLO – national leader of the National Regeneration Party (MORENA) – had scheduled with Monreal has been postponed and there is no definite date to talk about the aspirations of Monreal as Mayor of Mexico City. For the rest of the week, Mr. Andrés will be on tour around San Luís Potosí and Querétaro. This new trip will end on Sunday and, our sources say, the meeting between both could happen until next week. Yet, we've been told Monreal is licking his lips at the idea of announcing which will be his next move in his political career, which is more or less hinted at in an interview published today by EL UNIVERSAL.
Slowly, Mr. López Obrador?

Where is the money for 19-S?

In the national leadership of the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD), in charge of Alejandra Barrales, it's becoming increasingly frequent to hear the question: where is the money for the victims of the September 7 and 19 earthquakes? We've been told it's been two months since the earthquakes and Ms. Alejandra hasn't given a report on the savings they've had and the economic supports received from local leaders which were meant for the victims. Some members of the party are trying to pressure the national leadership to say where has the money gone and how much will be given to the victims left homeless. Show us the money!

Tight agenda for Mexico's Attorney General’s

With speakers of international renown, the International Congress on the cultural shift of the new criminal justice system took place in Mexico City. And the most-felt absence was Alberto Elías Beltrán, the acting head of Mexico's Office of the Attorney General (PGR). It was Rommel Moreno, head of the Unit for the Implementation of the Accusatorial Criminal System who appeared on behalf of the PGR. Our sources say they at least expected Mr. Alberto to open the event – which had three days of talks. Another absentee – who has never been before the media – was Omar García Harfuch, head of the Criminal Investigation Agency. Their loss, we've been told, because there were speakers from Spain, Colombia, Argentina, and France.

Ruiz Massieu and her nostalgia

With a twinge of nostalgia, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs Claudia Ruiz Massieu – now general secretary of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) – dropped by Brussels to see how the process of the renegotiation of the Global Agreement between Mexico and the European Union is going. We're told Ms. Claudia accompanied a group of Mexican legislators which met with European Parliament members to talk about the situation of the country. As you might remember, Ms. Claudia left the Ministry of Foreign Affairs last January to participate in the tasks of her party.
