José Luis Toledo Medina to run for mayor of Cancun

Cancun, Q.R. — PRD member José Luis Toledo Medina has announced his candidacy for mayor of Cancun.

With deadlines nearing, the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) has informed the National Political Committee in Mexico City that former President José Luis Toledo Medina will be their candidate for the municipal presidency of Benito Juárez.

After days of uncertainty due to the extensive analyzing of numerous candidates from the state of Quintana Roo, PRD party member José Luis Toledo Medina will begin campaigning for the position of mayor of the largest municipality in electoral rolls, Benito Juárez.

Others running for mayor of Benito Juárez include Morena’s Mara Lezama, of the Green Party, José de la Peña and the independent candidate, Issac Janix.

The current president of Benito Juárez announced last week that he will not be rerunning for a second term.

After several weeks of speculation about his political future, the mayor of Cancun, Remberto Estrada Barba, announced that he will not seek re-election but will remain in office until the 2016-2018 term ends.
