Presidential candidate Ricardo Anaya turned up unannounced in Chapala Friday, June 15, appearing first at a huge rally held near the waterfront Malecón in support of Jalisco’s Movimiento Ciudadano (MC) gubernatorial contender Enrique Alfaro, local mayoral aspirant Moisés Anaya and other District 17 candidates.
Immediately afterwards he shot off to Ajijic to attend a private gathering with supporters of Alejandro Aguirre, the Partido Acción Nacional (PAN) candidate for mayor.
Anaya is seeking election under the banner of the Por Mexico al Frente coalition encompassing PAN, MC and the Partido Revolucion Democrático (PRD). The Chapala branches of MC and PAN did not adhere to the coalition model in the mayor’s race.
At both events Anaya made a firm pledge to oversee honest government and environmental protection for the Lake Chapala watershed, if elected as Mexico’s next chief executive.
