Coahuila: Chronicle of nepotism foretold. Jorge Torres López interim governor

As had long been speculated, Jorge Torres López, until recently head of the Coahuila government's ministry of social development, assumed as interim governor of the state, to serve the remained of Humberto Moreira Valdés' term, as the latter is going to the national PRI presidency. The state congress vote confirmed the appointment 24-6.

Yet Torres is merely a caretaker, given that it is Humberto's plan to make his brother, Rubén Moreira, the next elected governor of Coahuila. In an act of quite nauseating and pathetic sycophancy, Torres, in his first act as interim governor, unveiled an oil portrait of the governor-on-leave-of absence in the Government's palace. 

Don't expect any major political initiative, announcement, or project in Coahuila for Torres' term.
