Yunes Linares believes López Obrador fears that Duarte’s warehouse may contain documents that link him in Duarte’s corruption scandal

Veracruz governor Miguel Ángel Yunes Linares insists that National Regeneration Movement (Morena) leader Andrés Manuel López Obrador, also known as AMLO, must keep his word and resign due to his relationship with former Veracruz governor Javier Duarte de Ochoa.

Yunes Linares believes that López Obrador fears that Duarte’s warehouse may contain documents that connect him to Duarte’s corruption scandal. Yunes Linares pointed out that López Obrador plays the political game like all politicians, because his party receives 400 million pesos ($20.3 million) each year from the National Electoral Institute (INE), as well as another 76 million pesos from the local institute.

He stressed that the López Obrador movement in Veracruz received 2.5 million pesos from the administration of Javier Duarte, which was forced to pay after AMLO supporters threatened to leave the inhabitants of Coatzacoalcos without water.
