Thirty-four candidates vying for nominations for local posts have been murdered ahead of the June 6 elections.

Thousands of offices are at stake in the elections as nearly half of the country elects new governors.

Experts say that the gangs want to ensure that “sympathetic” candidates are placed in town halls and city governments so they can operate without any interference.

“When there is a lot of abstentionism, the mafias dominate the elections,” the president said.

Some have referred to it as the most violent election in Mexican history.
