After the death of the governor of Puebla, the Congress will appoint a temporary leader.
The Congress of Puebla appoint an interim governor for the town after the accidental death of Gov. Martha Alonso .
According to the Mexican state, who will occupy the position will only do so for a period of three months, until extraordinary elections are convened to elect the new governor.
As stipulated in the Constitution of the Free and Sovereign State of Puebla in article 57, it must be "elected with the interim character to the citizen who must replace the governor of direct popular election, in his temporary absences, or in his absolute lack, if this happens in the first two years of the constitutional period. "
In this sense, the national leader of the National Action Party (PAN), Marko Cortés , asked for a governor to be appointed who belongs to his political force.
"We trust that this protocol, that tradition and that courtesy will be respected by those who today hold a majority in the local Congress," he said.
The governor of Puebla and her husband, Rafael Moreno Valle , died last Monday, December 24, when the plane crashed in which they were being transported in the Coronango municipality .
