José Ramón López won't reveal his secret

We've been told that José Ramón López Beltrán, the President's son, will no longer travel to Washington. He was set to speak at a conference titled “Designing Modern Times” during the 2019 Electoral Campaigns Strategies Seminar. When we asked the event organizers why his name no longer appeared among the speakers, they said: “he couldn't make it.” So the attendees who paid USD $1,800 for the seminar won't have the opportunity to listen to one of the people who were key for President López Obrador's win, who won the election with over 30 million votes.

His accusations were refuted and an immediate response from the Guanajuato Governor, Diego Sinhue, who asked him to deploy his police officers in favor of the inhabitants of the municipality and not in favor of the criminals.

PAN and Morena were scared for a moment

Both the PAN and Morena were really worried after 3 out of 11 counselors from the Electoral Tribunal voted against approving their electoral platforms for the Puebla election, which were the same as in 2018. Although 8 counselors approved them, if they hadn't been approved, they wouldn't have been able to register candidates and would have been out of the Puebla election. A few weeks ago, the INE allowed the parties to reuse the platforms because there wasn't enough time to create new ones.
