Bury Me Alive If I Don’t Fulfil My Campaign Promises – Presidential Candidate

Published

on

Social Encounter Party candidate Carlos Mayorga launches his campaign inside a coffin.

One candidate is a former boxer and promises to fight for people as hard as he did it in the ring.

Another launched his campaign by coming out of a coffin, telling people that he should be buried alive if he wins and doesn’t fulfill his promises.

And then there’s the social media influencer who seeks to become a member of Congress by promising, among other things, “boobs for every woman.”

In her platform, she proposes breast implants covered by the public health system.

That’s only a small part of the stage as Mexico gets ready to hold midterm elections Sunday, the largest in the country’s history.

More than 93 million registered voters will choose candidates for more than 21,000 elected posts in all three levels of government.

They will choose governors in almost of the states and all 500 members of the lower house of Congress. They will also elect the members of 30 state legislatures and 1,928 municipal governments out of a total of 2,446 (78%).

But despite its size, this elections is, in many respects, about a single man: current President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

López Obrador is not on the ballot, but Mexican analysts, experts, a former President and a former presidential candidate consulted by CNN say the elections amount to a referendum on the 67-year-old President, a populist, leftist political veteran and former Mexico City mayor who won the presidency in 2018 on his third attempt.

Luis Carlos Ugalde, former president of the Federal Electoral Institute, says that this election is about one thing: “Voters are basically split between those who love [President] López Obrador and those who don’t trust him.”
