“Eeeehh, you twat!”

Last October 15, EL UNIVERSAL published that Jonathan Yair Bárcenas, a citizen of the collective Mexican Parliament, filed a complaint before the Ethics Committee of the Chamber of Deputies demanding the destitution of the commissions of Human Rights and Gender Equality of the federal Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) deputies who insulted his fellow party member, of the National Regeneration Party (MORENA), Ariel Juárez. We've been told the subject hasn't been buried yet because next week, this legislative body will conclude on the matter against the PRI deputies: Arlet Mólgora, Rocío Díaz, Gloria Félix, Cristina Sánchez, Jasmine Bugarín, and Xitlalic Ceja. We cannot forget the leader of the PRI deputies, César Camacho, justified the ladies by saying they had shouted “twat”, so we will soon found out what they truly yelled and whether or not the resolution will make them yell their heads off.

Critical week for 2018

This week will be critical for the presidential succession. On one hand, the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) will register on Sunday 3rd the name – or names – of the presidential candidates: a game of smoke, mirrors, and deception. On the other we have the Citizen's Front for Mexico, who, according to our sources, is ready and moving forwards; although within the left Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) we've been told it won't be them who will finish the Front off, they are unwilling to go down without a fight regarding the impositions of the conservative National Action Party (PAN). There are clearly many opportunities to be handed out in the Congress and the states, yet many feel pushed around by the PAN, So this week we can expect a couple of surprises in almost all fronts, except the far- left National Regeneration Party (MORENA), where Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) has a very defined and clear path.

Rosario Green Macías, diplomacy's finest

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is preparing a tribute to the former Chancellor Rosario Green Macías, who passed away yesterday. Green Macías was the first woman appointed Chancellor in Mexico – during the administration of Ernesto Zedillo – and her foreign policy was based on the principles of non-intervention, the right of nations to self-determination, and peaceful resolution of controversies – principles of the Mexican foreign policy currently being questioned. Se was one of the finest Mexican diplomats in recent years.

A curious list of aspirants 

The brand-new list of aspirants to Circuit Court magistrates published by the Federal Council of the Judiciary has at least three names which catch the eye, which is the case of Guillermo Tafoya, brother of the Federal Councilor José Guadalipe Tafoya; judge Gabriel Pacheco, whose background includes condemning only one person for the murder of journalists Armando Rodríguez working for El Diario in Juárez City, in 2008; and Raúl Angulo, who leaves pending the conclusion of the case of the 10 judicial agents accused of planting a weapon on the attorney of the Infraiber corporation, in addition to having been forced to exonerate former Tabasco Governor Andrés Granier, of money laundering for the sum of MXN$35 million to comply with an amparo.
