In Mexico, the president’s office announced that minister of the environment and natural resources Josefa Gonzalez has tendered her resignation, after causing a commercial flight to be delayed. The resignation was accepted by President Lopez Obrador. She is the second top official to depart from the government of President Obrador.
In her resignation letter, she said “There is no justification. The true transformation of Mexico requires total alignment with the values of equity and justice,” Gonzalez Blanco said. “Nobody should have privileges, and the benefits of one, even in carrying out one’s duties, cannot be above the well-being of the majority.”
In his afternoon remarks, the president said he had spoken with Gonzalez Blanco that morning, telling her to attend to the matter of the flight delay, adding that she apologized. “She very honestly told me what had happened and placed her resignation at my disposal and I accepted it,” Lopez Obrador said.
