Will Osorio Chong renounce his past?

During President Enrique Peña Nieto's administration, the Internal Affairs Ministry, led by Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong, was the armed forces' “boss”. At the beginning of the administration, it was thought that if they concentrated the decisions, the fight against crime would improve...and look how that turned out for them, and for us. That's why one of Andrés Manuel López Obrador's first proposals to Congress will be to end this concentration. It's quite peculiar, we're told, that the now Senator, Osorio Chong is willing to vote to extinguish his own project. Miracles of the Fourth Transformation.

It's not profitable to be a Morena legislator

Morena has over 200 federal legislators, who donated MXN $45,000 in September, to support the Morena Por Los Demás trust fund, to help the victims of the September 2017 earthquake. Also, two weeks ago, the President-elect, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, announced that the legislators would sponsor the public consultation about the new airport, and we're told that they gave between MXN $6,000 and MXN $7,000 each. Now, the president of the Migration Affairs Commission from Congress, Julieta Kristal Vences, announced that she will propose that the federal legislators, at least Morena's, donate money to support the Honduran migrant caravan, through their journey in Mexico. Will they have any money left?

PRD: on its way to extinction

We're told that the PRD members in the north of the country are the ones who are trying to change the party's color and its acronym, founded by Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas, but it's not because they don't like it, but because they think the current crisis and the party's situation is the opportunity they had been waiting for, to look for new members. In any case, the party's leadership claims there won't decisions or proposals until they listen to all their members. Let's see if the party lasts that long...

The thorny paths of diplomacy

We're told that yesterday's episode, the complaints regarding the invitation made to Nicolás Maduro, to attend Andrés Manuel López Obrador's inauguration as President, is just a little taste of what's to come with the incoming government. The famous Estrada Doctrine, of not intervening in foreign countries' affairs, will bring other thorny affairs into Morena's administration. Will his leftist government ignore human rights violations carried out in other countries forever? It will be complicated, at least.
