Mexico.- President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) came out in defense of the PRI Hector Astudillo, ensuring that he did not do a bad job during his government in Guerrero.
In the morning of this October 14, AMLO that Astudillo’s mandate in Guerrero is about to end, as well as that of Quirino Ordaz in Sinaloa, highlighting the good efforts of both and recognizing the difficulties involved in governing Guerrero due to his historical marginalization.
“They are finishing governors (of other parties), such as the case of Quirino (Ordaz, of the PRI), the governor (Héctor Astudillo) who is going to finish Guerrero, who did not do a bad job. In the case of Guerrero, those who know know that it is not a field day to govern Guerrero because it has been a very forgotten state by the Federation. “
“It is one of the poorest states, that is why I am satisfied that it is the state that is receiving the most resources now. How can we not consider Guerrero? A lot of poverty and now we are helping a lot and that is why Héctor Astudillo who has finished his term speaks good because it is a neglected state, “he said in a morning conference.
The federal president trusted that Evelyn Salgado Pineda, who tomorrow takes office as governor of Guerrero, will do a good job and assured that he will continue to support.
“A lot of poverty (in Guerrero) too. It is conducive to confrontation, violence, political instability. So I believe that tomorrow the command is handing over to Evelyn Salgado, who will do a good job and we will continue to support,” he added.
López Obrador did not rule out that officials from other parties join the federal Cabinet
“Public servants, ex-governors in our government will participate. In a few days I will announce that they will represent Mexico in Embassies, Consulates, ex-governors and leaders of different parties and also citizens without a party.”
