Close call in Jocotepec

At press time, the mayoral race in Jocotepec remains inconclusive, although Movimiento Ciudadano (MC) incumbent José Miguel Gómez López holds a slim 63-vote lead over Futuro candidate Hugo García Vargas, according to results reported Wednesday by the Consejo Electoral in that municipality.

The Futuro Party was co-founded by former independent Jalisco legislator Pedro Kumamoto, and is competing in an election for the first time after gaining its registration only last year.


With 19,919 valid ballots counted in Jocotepec, 323 votes were determined as null, a figure far exceeding the difference between the two leaders, giving García grounds to file a challenge with  Jalisco’s Electoral Institute (IEPC).
