AMLO's medical service

With the disappearance of the Presidential Guard, everything indicates that the Presidential Guard Hospital will also stop providing its service, which was the one in charge of taking care of the President's health. We're told that this hospital is already being dismantled and relocating the personnel to the Central Military Hospital. Everything points that starting on December, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador's health will be in charge of the ISSSTE, as well as all the other bureaucrats or he will have to personally pay medical insurance or the bills at a private institution.

The Federal Police's new chief

We're told that in the President-elect's team, the person who will lead the Federal Police is still unknown, who will substitute Manelich Castilla Craviotto. Let's remember that the President-elect, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, named the heads of the Sedena and the Navy in October, but, they claim, a few days before he presents his peace plan, Mr. Andrés Manuel hasn't even described the profile of the person who will be in charge of the most important police corporation in the country, and begin with its strengthening and renovation. And the most relevant, that they accept for less than MXN $108,000 a month, and that is armored against corruption. Does AMLO have a candidate?

Alfaro interferes in MC

The orange party is preparing to renovate its national leadership, and yesterday they named the former lawmaker, Jorge Álvarez Máynez, as the Agreements General Secretary at MC, so his participation for the party's presidency has been ruled out. We're told that the contenders will be Clemente Castañeda, who is close to Jalisco's Governor, Enrique Alfaro, therefore, if he wins on December 3, the party will be under the wing of the Governor, and with that, they will shut down rumors that the Governor ended his relationship with MC, as it was said after the July election.
