Mexico: Poll Numbers and Teachers Strike

Categories: Latin America, Mexico, Education, Elections, Politics

It's Friday! That's right, time for Boz's famous poll numbers [1], wherein 48% of surveyed Mexicans believe there should be a recount while 53% believe that Calderon won the election. Lopez Obrador isn't among them, however, says Ana Maria Salazar [2]: “After López Obrador proclaimed himself the winner of the presidential election; Felipe Calderón said that no one should be deceived with such authoritarian attitudes.” She also gets readers up to date on the teachers’ strike in Oaxaca as does Mark in Mexico, who says [3] that striking teachers are intensifying their blockades.
