“There will be no setbacks, not a step back, not even to gain momentum. We are going forward, to continue transforming the country,” said the Mexican president from Lerdo, Durango, during his first joint tour with Sheinbaum in northern Mexico.

During his speech, he said that when his Administration ends, on October 1, he will leave “happy because he is assured of the change”, referring to Sheinbaum, representative of his National Regeneration Movement (Morena) and who prevailed in the last elections on June 2.

“I think we are going to go back to inaugurate the whole system now, but if there is any difficulty there is Claudia’s guarantee that all this healthy water system for the lagoon, which is very important, because it is health, it is not possible to continue consuming contaminated water,” he said.

The Mexican president was there this Sunday to supervise the Agua Saludable program for La Laguna, which closed a three-day tour in the region, accompanied by the elected candidate. He explained that the former head of government of Mexico City (2013-2018), will continue to advance in the program Agua Saludable para la Laguna and that all social programs will continue.

“It is already in the Constitution that is a right (pension) from the age of 68 (years), but we will correct the Constitution because now it has a qualified majority (in Congress) and it will be established that it is from 65 years”, and Sheinbaum has already made the commitment that in the case of women since the 60’s there will be support.
