Legislature Approves Delay in Mayor’s Appearance

By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 20 January, 2011

(Chilpancingo, NA 20 January) A day after it was reported that the chairman of the Committee on Government of the Guerrero State Legislature would not accept the request of the mayor of Acapulco to postpone his appearance, the legislature has granted him a continuance. He was to testify this morning concerning the new “Bicentennial Overpass” in Acapulco. PRD legislators suspected that funds from the project had found their way into the PRI’s campaign for governor, and that the project was opened before it was fully completed, just to aid Añorve in winning popular support. PRI legislators immediately decried the maneuver as “politically motivated.” PRI legislator Faustino Soto had been pressing for the continuance, justifying the mayor’s absence by reason of previous engagements with “high level” people in Mexico City. Evidently the mayor will not be called to task until after the elections, which represents a parliamentary victory for the PRI block.
