Archdiocese of Mexico City lauds citizens for voting despite threat of violence

.- The Archdiocese of Mexico City and its leader Cardinal Norberto Rivera have praised citizens for voting in the country's July 4 elections despite the threat of violence.

In a recent statement, the archdiocese also encouraged Mexicans to strive to seek the common good and to set aside all rivalries which endanger the country.

“Mexico is experiencing difficult times, and thus now more than ever we need to strive our best to seek the common good and set aside all the anger and rivalry that only leads to endless aggression and great danger for our beloved nation,” read the statement.

The archdiocese also lauded Mexicans for going to the polls to vote despite the risk of conflict.

It then added that the country must now accept the results and take steps towards “a new era of respect and harmony, in which the interests of the nation are those that dictate the political agenda.”

The archdiocese also urged election officials to resolve any disputes as objectively as possible in order to prevent controversy. “We reiterate our praise for the voters who despite adversities have expressed at the polls their desire for a better Mexico,” the statement concluded.
