Oaxaca's President-elect is a new hero

Oaxaca’s new president is doing quite well, considering he only has one year left in office. As president he would be given a free hand to carry out more of his radical reforms, including a free-for-all on the energy market.

Oaxacan President-elect Oaxaca Governor-elect Oaxaca Oaxacans for the first time in their history will have an opportunity to vote on the legalization of the marijuana plant. The initiative that passed in the local municipality will also legalize “green and organic” agriculture, as well as the sale of “healthy and organic” groceries.

Oaxaca’s new president is doing quite well, considering he only has one year left in office. As president he would be given a free hand to carry out more of his radical reforms, including a free-for-all on the energy market.

The state of Oaxaca is a microcosm of Mexico. Its people are among the poorest of all, and yet the country’s most dynamic. In a country where the government is corrupt, and where the politicians do not work with their people, the most significant issues facing the country are the need for change.

In a country where the most prominent political party is a ruling party, Oaxaca is a place where a majority of its citizens voted for a new government, and will continue to do so.

For the people, Oaxaca’s president is a new hero. We have learned from the past that the most important reforms in Mexico will come from the bottom. We have learned that true, lasting changes come from those who have the least power.

Nury Martinez, Santa Fe
