Finally! Political Campaigns Come to a Close!

By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 26 January, 2011

(Acapulco, AN 26 January) Today marks the culmination of the period for political campaigning for governor of Guerrero. Tomorrow begins the blackout period in which no politician or party supporter, or anyone else, may engage in political promotion. Even opinion polling is prohibited. Press releases and press conferences are not allowed.

The Guerrero Elections Institute (IEEG) has warned that violators will be punished severely this time; however, most veterans recognize that there is little that can be done other than to disqualify the winning candidate, a move considered unthinkable. The rival groups had from November 3 to January 26, today, to make their pitch to the electorate. According to the IEEG, “whatever they could do, they have done, and therefore we ask them to respect the law, which says that today is the last day of campaigning.”
