Corruption is down said AMLO
President Andrés Manuel López Obrador accepted that acts of corruption still occur “below”.
“There is also something of that, that we go from top to bottom, as the stairs are swept down and there is still extortion and local governments that still do not understand that this has already changed, even though it sent them messages advising them: situation changed, zero corruption, zero impunity, be careful not to end up in jail. I send them the messages, but sometimes they listen to me, the most important thing is to avoid corruption, ”he said.
