In order to capture the attention of citizens, the four candidates for the governorship of Yucatán (Mauricio Sahuí Rivero, Mauricio Vila Dosal, Joaquín Díaz Mena and Jorge Zavala Castro) endeavored to recite their proposals on three issues adressed in the first debate:

  1. Security and justice
  2. Human rights, corruption and transparency
  3. Accountability

The PAN and Movimiento Ciudadano standard bearer Mauricio Vila Dosal, who accused the PRI, PVEM and PANAL standard bearer, Mauricio Sahuí Rivero, several times during the debate.

Trying to show superiority, Vila Dosal minimized the candidates of MORENA, PT and PES, Joaquín Díaz Mena and from the PRD, Jorge Zavala Castro: “I’m here to debate against the PRI candidate” he said at the moment of introducing himself.

However, the PRI’s candidate, Mauricio Sahuí, did not give importance to Vila’s provocations, and focused on his proposals showing sobriety, knowledge and management of the situation.

Morena’s candidate, Joaquín Díaz Mena, got hooked on some of the accusations made by the PRI and PAN, but he devoted most of his time to talk about his proposals and seeking to capture the sympathy of the citizens.

On his part, the candidate of the PRD, Jorge Zavala, demonstrated to have knowledge about real problems faced by the Yucatecan society and he was the only one that focused one hundred percent to give concrete and real proposals in order to solve existing problems.

While the other three candidates, Vila, Sahui and Diaz Mena were attacking each other, Zavala from the PRD dedicated himself to take advantage of his time to convince the public that he is the best option to be governor of Yucatán.
