Presidency of the Pacific Alliance / Sonora
Presidency of the Pacific Alliance. President López Obrador announced that he will not concede the pro Tempore Presidency of the Pacific Alliance to the current Peruvian government, which he said is “illegitimate.”
During his morning conference, he pointed out that he will carry out consultations with the Rio Group to know their opinion and establish an action plan, because he “does not want to legitimize a coup d’etat,” which is still in debate regarding what happened against Pedro Castillo, former President of Peru.
Dina Boluarte, President of Peru, said that on Feb. 15, the Mexican president failed to hand her over the pro Tempore Presidency of the Pacific Alliance that corresponds to the Andean country.
Sonora. López Obrador reported that the homicide rate in Sonora decreased 10% and said it was thanks to the coordination between federal forces like the National Guard and the Army. Moreover, he stated he will continue to cooperate with the entity’s governor, Alfonso Durazo and assured that their work together has been honest and professional. In addition, Durazo recognized the president’s efforts to develop the state through the Sonora Plan.
So far, the Sonora Plan promises a slew of projects regarding solar and wind power generation, semiconductor production, the development of the liquefied natural gas industry, water desalination, lithium battery supply and boosting the automotive sector in the area, among other projects.
