Governorship in Tabasco. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that the head of the National Fund for Tourism Development (FONATUR), Javier May, will resign from his position to run for the Tabasco governorship.
Alfredo del Mazo. López Obrador praised Alfredo del Mazo, Governor of the State of Mexico, noting that he has not engaged in political maneuvering against his government. The president detailed that there has been coordination with the Del Mazo administration, despite the administrations belonging to different political parties.
"We may have different party affiliations but, as leaders, we must always think of the people. There should be no partisan flags; we must work together and we have achieved this as Alfredo del Mazo has been very respectful, has not confused matters and has not engaged in political games," he added. The president's statements come just hours before Del Mazo's last government report, which he will attend.
Mayan Train. President López Obrador reported that FONATUR will hand over the operation of the Mayan Train to SEDENA. The president explained his reasons for entrusting the administration of the Mayan Train to SEDENA.
"How do we ensure good, honest administration, prevent waste and prevent the Mayan Train from being handed over to private interests in the future? We must entrust it to a serious, responsible institution representing the nation: in this case, SEDENA. We are not leaving it with FONATUR, which is now something else, but it used to be a company riddled with corruption," he explained.
