A historic day in Sinaloa: Malova assumes as governor on the first day of 2011

It's a historic day in Sinaloa: 82 decades of PRI hegemony ended today with the assumption of Mario López Valdez, better known as "Malova," as governor.

True, and lest we forget Malova is an ex-priìsta who remains close to PRI´s 2000 presidential candidate, Francisco Labastida, a fellow sinaloense, but his assumption of power nonetheless represents a significant break with the old PRI structures that have maintained control of the state since 1929. This was only possible due to a very broad opposition alliance led by PAN and the PRD.

Here´s a useful interview El Universal made with Malova a couple of days back.
