‘He knows if he bites the poisoned apple’; Riquelme questions the invitation of Quirino Ordaz to the AMLO government

After making it known that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador proposed the PRI governor of Sinaloa Quirino Ordaz Coppel as Mexico’s ambassador to Spain, the governor of Coahuila indicated that “he knows if he will bite the poisoned apple.”

Yesterday, at a press conference, the president said that Quirino Ordaz is a good friend and that he did not want to express his personal opinion, but that he was not convinced that this was the right thing to do.

“It is like the plays: first act, a well-qualified PRI governor; second act: he loses elections in the state; third act: he invites him as ambassador. What was the name of the play?” Said Riquelme Solís.

He added: “there are many issues to ponder.”

It is worth mentioning that it was the Secretary of Foreign Relations who announced that the proposal will be presented to the Spanish government and subsequently to the Senate for approval.

Quirino Ordaz would replace Ambassador Oñate who for months has communicated that she will retire from this area, after 42 years in the diplomatic service.
