(the mayor is running for reelection). Madness!

Municipal politicians aren't subject to the same "no consecutive terms" rules as the bigger fish?


The politicians changed the laws. Where've you been?

Reforma Político Electoral 2014


I learn something every day. Looks like the right to re-election doesn't extend to EPN. I assume most Mexicans like it that way?

I consider the majority of anti-EPN sentiment to be based on prejudice, not facts. And since no Mexican alive today can recall what the reelection of any Mexican politician is like, I'll venture to say it's premature to speculate how folks will feel about it. I will speculate that if AMLO were to win the presidency next year, within the first year of his presidency a lot more people than will currently express support for EPN will be looking back on his sexenio as the good old days, much like the majority of sane US citizens long for the sanity of their previous president.
