Prospective Mexican Foreign Secretary Opts for Senate Seat Instead

MEXICO CITY – President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Thursday that he will nominate a former capital mayor as Mexico’s foreign secretary in lieu of his original choice, who chose to occupy the Senate seat he won.

Hector Vasconcelos, who has prior diplomatic experience, was supposed to become Mexico’s top diplomat, but decided instead to take his place in the Senate.

To replace him, Lopez Obrador designated former Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard.

During his tenure as the top official of this sprawling capital, Ebrard chaired the World Mayors Council on Climate Change, and he is the current president of the United Nations Global Network on Safer Cities.

Ebrard’s first task as the international voice of the incoming Mexican government will be preparing for a July 13 meeting here between Lopez Obrador and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
