A PANista and a Moreno in El Universal

A very lively talk was held yesterday morning by the governor of Chihuahua, the PAN Maru Campos, and the president of the board of directors of the Chamber of Deputies, the morenista legislator Sergio Gutierrez Luna. The meeting took place at the EL UNIVERSAL facilities to which both attended separately to give interviews about their respective functions. When they met in this publishing house, they took time to exchange points of view, especially on the issue of the Expenditure Budget and the 5% growth in resources that is projected to direct to states and municipalities. The cordial and respectful tone of both, make us see, should be a standard in these polarizing times.

Fantastic 4Ts

On the recent tour that the president carried out Andrés Manuel López Obrador through Veracruz, Hidalgo and Puebla there was everything, from slamming doors by victims to criticism of the federal Executive for bumpy roads. However, they make us notice that something that few saw in this eventful tour is that the members of the Sembrando Vida program in Veracruz added a curious element to their vests: a number “4” with a “T”, in reference to the self-call Fourth Transformation. However, they make us see that the designs are very similar to the logo of the superheroes known as “The Fantastic Four”, from Marvel Comics. Could it be that in Bienestar they have already “raised” their fame and now they consider themselves humans with supernatural powers? They may not disappear in broad daylight or stretch like rubber, but they are trained to perform feats between the governmental and the electoral.

Rosario Robles is still far from freedom

Despite the fact that a federal court confirmed the protection granted to Rosario Robles, former head of the Ministry of Social Development (Sedesol) to review whether he can obtain house arrest, the decision is really a half-success. When reviewing the measure, the judge can again deny the request of the former official and even if he grants her the requested domiciliary rooting, the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) has yet to complete an arrest warrant against her for organized crime, It was issued by a judge from Almoloya de Juárez, State of Mexico and that, if executed, would leave the former Secretary of State without options, since said crime warrants preventive detention ex officio. In other words, the outlook still looks complicated for Robles, even though he does not seem to lose hope that he will reverse the political animosities by legal means.

The scare of Beatriz Paredes

Great concern was generated among the political class by the news that the PRI senator, Beatriz Paredes, had had an accident for which she had been hospitalized. Fortunately, as she described it later, “the consequences were not serious (…) things are on the right track, with the need for the time required to recover from a fracture”. Few characters in Mexican politics, such as the former PRI national leader, would have generated such a number of displays of solidarity as yesterday was shown by characters of all kinds within the very varied national ideological spectrum. We wish him a speedy recovery.
