Secretary of Bishops’ Conference calls on Lopez Obrador to cease creation of parallel government in Mexico

.- The Secretary General of the Bishops’ Conference of Mexico, Bishop Carlos Aguiar Retes, has called on former presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to reconsider his decision to set up a parallel government, saying it is of no help to the country.

“One must always know his place in history, in the time in which one is living.  I would like to ask Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to reconsider his decision of two months ago, I think it is out of place and that instead of helping is actually harming the country,” the bishop said.

During a press conference, Bishop Aguiar explained that current circumstances are distinct from those of July 3, the day after the elections. He said it is now in everyone’s best interest to move forward with the results of the election.

Lopez Obrador has insisted that the results of the presidential elections were inaccurate and he has begun what he calls a campaign of “civil disobedience,” including calls for a full recount.  Mexico’s Federal Electoral Tribunal has certified Felipe Calderon as the winner of the elections, but Lopez Obrador recently announced his decision to set up a “parallel government.”
