Today: Two Week Hiatus in State Government

(Chilpancingo, AN 15 March) Governor Zerferino Torreblanca Galindo announced that starting today, all government actions that involve the use of public resources will stop. They will recommence on April 1 with the swearing in of the new governor, Ángel Aguirre Rivero. This will probably be the current governor’s last formal press conference. He said, “This is the first time in Guerrero that we have had a smooth transition from one democratic government to another one, and it must be with complete transparency.” As of Wednesday of this week, all state employees with cellular telephones paid for with public funds will be asked to shut them off. The announcement was a prudent gesture on the part of the outgoing governor; otherwise the state government might have shut down completely without anyone noticing it.
