Lopez Obrador driving a lot of Mexicans loco


What happens in Mexico, well it’s not Los Vegas. We need to pay at least some attention. Not the end of National Action Party [PAN] or Institutional Revolutionary Party [PRI] I think we may see a move Left here. They do mention Occupy Wall Street. The same one also mentions José Mujica.
Kinda like out of the frying pan into the fire if that happens,

    Only one of the three independent candidates have appeared to fulfill the necessary requirements to compete in the Mexican presidential elections on July 1st, AP reports. The National Electorate Institute (INE) stated that conservative lawyer Margarita Zavala, two-term elected legislator and former First Lady during Felipe Calderón’s administration, was able to gather more than 866,593 signatures, or 1% of the electoral register, across at least 17 Mexican regions. The other two candidates—Nuevo León state Gov. Jaime Rodríguez and Guerrero state Sen. Armando Ríos Piter—were unable to pass the signature threshold, an INE spokesperson stated. Expected to have four contenders, the final presidential ballot is set to be announced on March 29 by the INE.

    Mexican presidential frontrunner Andrés Manuel López Obrador said on Sunday that, if elected on July 1st, he will ask outgoing President Enrique Peña Nieto to halt two upcoming oil auctions scheduled to occur before assuming office on Dec. 1st. Speaking in Mexico City on the 80th anniversary of Mexican nationalization of oil, the left-wing candidate of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) spoke about the prospect of reducing the privatization of energy, enshrined in a 2014 reform that aimed to eliminate state-owned oil monopoly.
