The Mexico City press has published results of a survey by the Mitofsky group in which Yucatan Gov. Rolando Zapata Bello remains perceived as the best qualified in Mexico for the implementation of public policies that strengthen security, economy and development of the Peninsula and the South East generally.

Media reports indicate that pollsters have evaluated the chief executive of the Yucatan positively. In its poll, Mitofsky gives an approval of 74 percent, which places Zapata as the governor with the greatest support in the various sectors of Yucatan.

Mitosfky’s survey taken in August 2015 in Yucatan gives Zapata a rating of 73.7 percent; the national survey gives governors a 45 percent approval, on average.


The survey also reveals that the issues that most concern Yucatan citizens over 18 years old are, in order of importance: the economy, with an incidence of 55 percent, and insecurity, with 38 percent.

A July 2013 poll showed 53.5 percent concerned for economic problems, a figure that rose in August, while the issue of insecurity claimed more interest among Yucatecans in the previous poll.

The poll highlight’s Zapata’s actions in strengthening culture, “reaffirming their sense of identity and belonging, but especially the security environment that has generated the expansion of the production plants and the creation of jobs, plus innovative industries such as aeronautics, the use of wind power and the use of their tourist resources, all with a sense of productivity and with full respect for the ecology of the area.”
