Peña Nieto delivers his own Informe

Enrique Peña Nieto gave his fifth and final Informe as Governor of Mexico State before an audience that included 13 of the 18 PRI governors and most of the party’s luminaries, past and present. As columnist Ricardo Alemán noted, Peña Nieto is being treated as the “virtual President,” and the fifth Informe “seemed like an evocation of the times of Adolfo López Mateos,” President from 1958 to 1964. Alemán asks, “Is Peña Nieto an example of the new PRI that will return to power in 2012? If this is the new PRI, what is the old PRI?” (Universal 9/7)
