According to the latest opinion poll conducted by De las Heras Demotecnia, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has a nationwide approval rating of 75%.

The President clarified that he did not order the members of the radical dissident National Teachers Coordinating Committee (CNTE) to maintain their encampment in the Zócalo square, so as to prevent the opposition’s so-called Pink Tide rally. He explained that such an instruction would be a betrayal of the way he relates to social movements.

President López Obrador continues to travel around the country to meet with governors and those responsible for public health policies, in order to guarantee that in September there will be a first level Public Health-Care System in place. On May 25 and 26 he will visit Baja California and Sonora.

-It is not true that there were blackouts on May 17 and 18. The National Center for Energy Control (Cenace) issued operational alerts to meet the demand for electric energy, but this did not imply generalized supply interruptions.
