MEXICO CITY (APR) .- Two weeks after his presidential campaign began, Andrés Manuel López Obrador faced a second act of municipal hostility, this time during a proselytizing rally in San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora.
The committee of Morena in that locality denounced that shortly before to initiate the act of the tabasqueño, personnel of the city council closed with padlock the bars of access to the place of the event and before the reclamation, they asked the morenistas that they went to the Direction of Public Works municipal authority to process authorization.
The event was scheduled to take place in the Forest of the City, in whose gates the presidential candidate had to get off his vehicle and continue on foot towards the temple.
In San Luis Río Colorado, José Enrique Reina Lizárraga, of PAN affiliation, is municipal president for the second time.
On April 2, in Apodaca, Nuevo León, the municipality’s personnel complicated the permits for the realization of the act and, after authorizing it in the main square, logistical adjustments had to be made because it was occupied by street vendors of the CTM.
Additionally, taxi drivers from the same workers’ center closed the streets of several blocks around, reinforced by traffic agents who only let the candidate’s vehicle pass with the intervention of the Federal Police agents who guard their journeys.
In Apodaca, the PRI José Luis de la Garza Treviño is municipal president.
The two facts have been denounced by local committees of the Together We Make History coalition, because until now the national leaders of Morena, PES and PT that integrate it have not addressed the incidents.
