The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), announced that before the June 2 elections, he has only four morning conferences left, known as La Mañanera; This is due to the imminent electoral ban.

From the Treasury Room of the National Palace, AMLO, founder of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena), explained that, to avoid interfering in the electoral process that will be managed by the National Electoral Institute (INE), he will suspend his messages until after the elections, at which time he will resume his conferences with journalists at the presidential headquarters.

Reminder about the electoral ban

In the context of the beginning of the electoral campaigns, the federal president asked the Mexican press to avoid topics that could be interpreted as an intervention in the democratic process.

AMLO read a letter sent by the INE that specified what he could and could not do during the 90 days of the campaign.

Since then, the president has been cautious not to mention issues related to the elections, reiterating that he can be questioned by journalists starting June 2, when the electoral ban ends.
