The Public Electoral Local Organization (OPLE) has declared red alert on five districts in Veracruz, due to violent incidents that have taken place in the days before governor elections are to take place.

OPLE president José Alejandro Bonilla Bonilla said that the districts being put under alert are Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mixtla de Altamirano, Coxquihui and Alvarado.

In Mixtla de Altamirano, a National Regeneration Movement (Morena) supporter was killed and a PRI delegate’s house was fired at in Coxquihui.

Bonilla Bonilla made a public call for civility and said that authorities in these districts will be on high alert during the June 4 elections.

“We’re in daily contact with local authorities, in case there’s an alert, we let them know, but we are asking people to behave peacefully,” said Bonilla Bonilla.

Now that campaigns are over, Bonilla Bonilla is expecting things to calm down, and a good voter turnout on Sunday.
