De Mauleón, a victim of insecurity and hate

The case of journalist and writer Héctor de Mauleón has highlighted the insecurity climate in Mexico City, with theft and robberies in the streets of the 16 boroughs in the city. But what is more worrying is that the EL UNIVERSAL columnist has been threatened and didn't receive the proper attention during the previous administration, from the protection mechanism program implemented by the federal government. This mechanism has been used for personal interests and in the past, some officials profited from it. De Mauleón had to hire someone to protect him. Besides the insecurity climate, the hate spread by some media outlets and social media should be also mentioned, and the political polarization in Mexico, which is the result of the 2018 presidential election. It's time to focus on the security of the population and stop political confrontation to benefit Mexico and all its citizens.

PAN Governor supports Morena

After the PAN has governed Baja California for 30 years, we've been told that the PAN Governor Francisco Vega de Lamadrid is willing to let Morena rule now. We've been told that Vega de Lamadrid has voiced his support for the Morena candidate, Jaime Bonilla. You might wonder how, well, we've been told that the Governor is making moves on the political-electoral scenario and was sent some of his collaborators to work with Bonilla. De Lamadrid's idea is to negotiate with Bonilla so that the PAN Governor is not accused or persecuted for corruption acts. This is the end of an era.

Aureoles says no to the PRD, for now

Yesterday it was claimed Silvano Aureoles is a contender to the PRD leadership but the Michoacán Governor said that they have to strengthen the party, “review a lot of things that didn't go well and establish what do we want in the future,” he said. And although he didn't rule out the possibility to run for the PRD presidency, he said he was focused on being a Governor. The thing is Silvano has two years left in the local government, until October 2021, after the intermediate elections. Some PRD members claim that we will have to see if the PRD still exists in 2021.

President López Obrador to visit Hidalgo
