Cuauhtémoc Blanco, the governor of Morelos, was recently booed at an event in Cuernavaca, where he was speaking. The event was organized to mark the Restoration of the Old Palace of Cortés and Murals of Diego Rivera. Despite the negative reaction from the crowd, Blanco continued his speech, ignoring the signs of disagreement from his detractors.
The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), who was also present at the event, came to the defense of Blanco, describing him as a “great governor.” López Obrador explained that he holds this opinion because of the successful collaboration between the federal and state governments in Morelos, which has resulted in positive outcomes for the people.
This is not the first time that AMLO has publicly supported Blanco. In the past, he has defended Blanco against criticism of his government, stating that Blanco has done a better job than his predecessor, Graco Ramírez. AMLO also pointed out that the criticism of Blanco is likely related to the upcoming elections, where many candidates are vying for positions of power.
In response to AMLO’s comments, Graco Ramírez accused him of justifying Blanco’s “absurdities and acts of corruption.” Ramírez has previously alleged links between Blanco and drug trafficking, and has criticized Blanco for his associations with alleged criminal leaders. Despite these controversies, AMLO continues to support Blanco and his administration.
It is clear that there are differing opinions about Blanco’s performance as governor, but it is ultimately up to the people of Morelos to decide whether he is doing a good job. The upcoming elections will be a crucial test for Blanco and his administration, and will determine whether he has the support of the people.
