Cozumel Elects New Mayor

Cozumel Elects New Mayor

Pedro Joaquin Delbouis Wins …..

Cozumel residents took to the voting booths over the weekend and elected a new Mayor and new national President.  Pedro Joaquin Delbouis is Cozumel’s Mayor-Elect, and is currently a member of the PRI ( Partido Revolucionario Institucional, or Institutional Revolutionary Party in English)    It is interesting to note that Pedro Joaquin’s father previously served as the Governor for the State of Quintana Roo.  He is only 39 years of age and was born here on the island, and has been President of CANACO,Coparmex and Fedetur.

Of the nearly 61,000 citizens who compose Cozumel’s electorial roll,  just over 60% turned out to exercise their right to vote.

On the national level, Mexicans elected Andrés Manuel López Obrador.  According to an article in the Washington Post:  “López Obrador, 64, is the first leftist in decades to be elected president of Mexico. He won around 53 percent of the vote, 30 percentage points more than the second-place candidate, ­Ricardo Anaya.”

 

Although the winners will not assume their duties for over 3 months, both candidates will be busily preparing for their new posts.

 

Cozumel elije un nuevo alcalde

Gana Pedro Joaquín Delbouis. . .

Los ciudadanos de Cozumel acudieron a votar el fin de semana y eligieron a un nuevo alcalde y presidente de la Nación. Pedro Joaquín Delbouis es el alcalde electo y en la actualidad es miembro del PRI. Es interesante hacer notar que Pedro Joaquín padre fue gobernador del Estado e Quintana Roo. Tan solo cuenta con 39 años de edad y nació aquí en la Isla, ha sido presidente de la CANACO, Coparmex y Fedetur.

De los casi 61,000 ciudadanos que conforman el padrón electoral de Cozumel, solo un poco más de 60% acudieron a ejercer su derecho al voto.

 

A nivel nacional, los mexicanos eligieron a Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Según un artículo publicado por el Washington Post: “López Obrador, de 64 años de edad, es el primer presidente de izquierda que en décadas ha sido elegido como presidente de México. Obtuvo cerca de 53 porciento de los votos, esto es 30 porciento más que Ricardo Anaya, el candidato que quedo en segundo lugar.

 

A pesar que los ganadores no asumen sus obligaciones sino hasta dentro de 3 meses, ambos candidatos estarán atareados preparándose para ocupar sus nuevos cargos.
