Erwin in The Latinamericanist reports on the resignation of Attorney General Arturo Chávez, adding that: “Chavez’ resignation opens the doors for Mexico’s first female Attorney General. Calderon named investigative prosecutor Marisela Morales to the post with the aim of deepening ‘the strategic role of the attorney general's office, in particular in the fight against organized crime’.”
The senate will need to ratify her position though. its very cynic to appoint a woman to fight the war of Calderón in a country where feminicides are the norm.
yes, thank you for pointing that out here; Erwin mentions that the senate needs to confirm her appointment in the post this links to.
