Looting continues on the way to Acapulco. For the GN now.

In the final stretch, the election of the new rector of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) must complete this week a first evaluation of candidates by the Governing Board to, between November 6 and 10, give know the name of the person who will replace Enrique Graue Wiechers from the first minute of December.

Phew…

* It will not be until the end of the week, by the way, when the leaders of PAN, PRI and PRD in the capital –Andres Atayde, Israel Betanzos and Nora Arias– attend the Electoral Institute of Mexico City to confirm their decision to go together, in coalition, in the election of head of Government.
