According to LPO from the Mexican news website “La Política Online“, Andrés López Beltrán will control the Ministry of Finance of the State of Mexico through Paulina Moreno García, a CIDE economist with previous experience in Bacomext, SAT, and the Lopez Obrador failed health project Insabi.
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s son beat Senator Higinio Martinez and Secretary of Finance Rogelio Ramirez De la O who also wanted to place one of his recommendeds in charge of the finances of the State of Mexico.
In this way, not only the link between Toluca and Palacio Nacional is reinforced, but also the common political destiny of Claudia Sheinbaum’s candidacy is aligned with the beginning of Delfina Gómez’s government.
The main concern that López Beltrán has and that also nests in the presidential environment is that Delfina’s government will be inertial and that the electorate will not be able to register an immediate difference between the PRI era and the brand new Morena government.
This explains in part the peripheral role assigned to Higinio Martinez, who interacted with the PRI politial party for decades. He would come to personify the change with continuity that the presidential son categorically rejects.
This is also because the senator has not yet asked for a leave of absence from his position. He could have done it before, but he did not, perhaps because he is aware that the conformation of Delfina’s cabinet is not progressing as he intends.
Another proof of this is the arrival of Trinidad Franco to the Mayor’s Office. Higinio Martinez had Franco vetoed and boycotted her arrival as the State Secretary of Education. She now has a central role in the governor’s staff.
