Why Ley Peña was implemented in Mexico State: One obvious reason "revealed"

With the Mexico State gubernatorial campaign well underway, we can now see clearly exactly why Govenror Enrique Peña Nieto was so eager to change the state's electoral code (what was dubbed Ley Peña) including shortening the campaign to 45 days. Mexico State has 125 municipalities, and visiting all during the campaign is virtuall impossible.

Unless you have your own helicopter

Eruviel Ávila, PRI's candidate (and, lest we forget, in coalition with the misnomed "Green Party" (PVEM), insists that his use of a private helicopter does not entail going over campaign spending limits.

Yet how much does it costs to have a private helicopter? That information, however, Ávila declined to say.
