Acapulco: a lot of grid and few nuts

Francisco Garfias.

The grid about the way in which the authorities of the three levels of government have faced the devastation that left Otis in Guerrero, has overshadowed the economic, social and human drama that is coming to that entity in the coming years.

The Laboratory of Analysis in Commerce, Economy and Business of the UNAM released a statement in which it predicts that the damage caused by the hurricane will “set back” human development in the entity for ten years.

A bitter fact for a state with a population of 3 million 340 thousand people; 60 percent of which live in poverty.

The figure collides with President López Obrador's hasty prediction that “there will be no bitter Christmas” for the inhabitants of the municipalities that have been declared “natural disaster zones” after the hurricane: Acapulco, Coyuca de Benítez, Benito Juárez, Atoyac de Álvarez, Xalpatláhuac, and Tecpan de Galeana.

An activity that will be severely affected is Tourism, which is vital for the entity, not only for Acapulco.

The document includes data from the National Urban Safety Survey: before the natural disaster, 74.9 percent of the residents of Acapulco already felt unsafe.

“Violence and crime in Guerrero has been increasing in recent years, according to reports from the DEA and the Secretariat of Public Citizen Security of the Federal Government,” the statement says.

He adds: “Guerrero is one of the entities with the most criminal groups: since Enrique Peña Nieto's six-year term, it is estimated that some 500 organized crime organizations operate in that territory.”

The State also ranks seventh in the number of homicides – 800 in the first half of 2023 – which is equivalent to a 20 percent increase compared to the same period of the previous year.

“According to UNICEF, more than 296 thousand girls, boys and adolescents could have been seriously affected by having to face lack of adequate nutrition, limited access to drinking water, and risk of diseases related to water stagnation.

The analysis was coordinated by Juan Ignacio Martínez Valdés, professor at the UNAM Center for International Relations; and by Juan Felipe Santana Mora, chief analyst of the aforementioned laboratory.


We found out yesterday that of the nine entities where there will be Governor elections, the Broad Front for Mexico will take men in the four states where it is most competitive: Yucatán, Puebla, CDMX and Veracruz. The information is attributed by the newspaper Reforma to Marko Cortés himself.

Yucatán is the state where the opponents are most competitive, according to an analysis based on the 2018 vote, carried out by Morenistas. PAN-PRI-PRD took 72.24 percent of the votes in 2018.

In Veracruz, the Front goes with a PRI member: deputy José Francisco Yunes or former senator Héctor Yunes. In 2018 it reached 48.4 percent of the vote.

In Puebla, 48.1 percent of the votes six years ago, the candidate will be the PAN member Eduardo Rivera, mayor of the capital of the entity: and in CDMX, 41.3 percent, with the PAN member Santiago Taboada.

Morena leads in Tabasco, 59.9 percent of the votes; in CDMX she got 41.9 percent; Veracruz, 41.0; and Chiapas, 34.7 percent.

The MC is only competitive in Jalisco. In 2018 he obtained 39 percent of the votes. The favorite in the polls is the mayor of Guadalajara, Pablo Lemus.

Morena presents two strong candidates there: Carlos Lomelí and José María Martínez. The first tops the internal measurements. The second, they tell us, can “bite” votes from the PAN, the party in which he was a member, and from the MC.

Since we are. The young Emecista, Vida Gómez Herrera, coordinator of the Provisional Operational Commission in Yucatán, registered yesterday as an orange candidate for the governorship of Yucatán.

Your motto? It is time for a new and young option for the state.
