But nothing comes close to this: In Chiapas, the local electoral board approved the substitution of Ulises Alberto Grajales Niño by Bulmaro Castillejos Calvo as a candidate to be mayor of Villaflores.
What's the reason this time? Ulises Alberto Grajales is accused of having murdered an activist from the PAN party who was apparently tearing down some electoral material on June 11. Gunned down, in cold blood. Grajales has at least been arrested.
Chiapas will elect, on July 1, a new governor, 118 municipal preisdents, and 40 local deputies for the state congress, as well as, of course, votes for national president, senators, and deputies.
May there be no more political murders until then.
