Bad Bunny Tickets. Ricardo Sheffield, Head of PROFECO, reported that 2,000 people were affected by Ticketmaster at the Bad Bunny concert. Moreover, he mentioned that the problem was not the resale of the tickets. The ticket seller said the problem occurred due to the signal intermittency at the entrance of the concert where the ticket code is scanned.
In addition, Sheffield said Ticketmaster has started with a 100 percent total ticket cost reimbursement plus 20 percent for compensation. Ticketmaster has agreed to change its ticket buying policies following this unfortunate situation.
Attack against Ciro Gómez Leyva. President López Obrador instructed Mexico City’s authorities to carry out an extensive investigation into the attack against journalist Ciro Gómez Leyva.
The president assured that the only line of investigation that should be ruled out is the implication of his government in the assault and did not reject the possibility of opposing political groups carrying out such attack.
Gómez Leyva is one of the most popular radio journalists in Mexico and last Thursday two people shot him with the “clear” intention of murdering him. The attack against Gómez Leyva occurs in the middle of a murder crisis against journalists in Mexico where 19 journalists and media workers have been murdered so far in 2022.
“Plan B” for Electoral Reform. President López Obrador celebrated the approval of “Plan B” of his Electoral Reform.
Moreover, López Obrador pointed that the changes to the “Plan B” have already been checked and that it will be in February when the new ordinary period will begin.
The electoral reform proposes to change 18 articles and insert seven transitional ones. It sought to replace INE, to eliminate plurinominal deputies and to reduce the number of federal legislators to 300 deputies and 96 senators, while implementing electronic voting, among other changes. Last month, the president assured that if the reform was not approved, his plan B would be to propose an amendment to the electoral law, which does not require the approval of two-thirds of Congress. Plan B of the electoral reform establishes that salaries will be reviewed, magistrates may be dismissed, the General Commission will be reorganized and trusts will be extinguished.
North American Summit. President López Obrador said that during the North American Summit the Sonora Plan will be discussed with North American leaders.
The Sonora Plan will consist of the construction of five solar plants with associated transmission lines, the modernization of the Guaymas port, as well as other airports and highways. The plan also includes the concession of infrastructure to exploit lithium to US and Canadian companies.
The Summit is commonly known as the “three friends” meeting and is usually held every year.
