Mexican Elections

If you are vacationing in Cabo on Sunday, July 1, be aware that outside of the hotels there is no alcohol served or for sale.  Why?  Because……..

It is election year in Mexico. On July 1, Mexicans will go to the polls to choose a new President, 128 senators to serve a six-year term in the Senate and 500 representatives for the Chamber of Deputies, all of whom serve for three years.

The candidates in the presidential race are Enrique Peña Nieto (PRI or Institutional Revolutionary Party), Josefina Vázquez Mota (PAN or National Action Party, currently in power), Andrés Manuel López Obrador (PRD or Party of the Democratic Revolution) and Gabriel Quadri de la Torre (PANAL or New Alliance Party).

Polls show Enrique Peña Nieto, the PRI candidate for the Presidency, with a lead and if he wins it will mark a comeback for his party after 12 years in opposition. Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador, the candidate for the leftist PRD and its coalition partners is in second place and appears to have gained ground in recent days.

It is a good idea to stock up on adult beverages no later than the day before Election Day.  There should be no other interruptions to your vacation as polls are not located in the tourist areas.  Enjoy your stay in beautiful Los Cabos.  If interested in viewing real estate in Cabo...Click Here.
