International News: Kidnapped Mayoral candidate in Mexico found alive 

Mexico City

Posted: Monday, May 27, 2024. 9:22 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Sunday, a Mayoral candidate was abducted in Mexico.

According to the BBC, Mayoral candidate Albino Gomez was found alive. 

Gomez is a candidate for Mayor for the MORENA party in the municipality of Cochoapa el Grande, in southern Guerrero state.

Sunday’s election in Mexico has been plagued by violence and Guerrero is the most dangerous state for candidates.

Gomez had reportedly left his closing campaign rally when he was attacked at his home. 

Gomez campaign manager was reportedly murdered and 2 more people were injured during the attack. 

Dozens of candidates have been killed and hundreds have been threatened.

Candidates running for local office have been the worst affected.

Criminal groups in Mexico target them to ensure that their favoured candidate wins, or to frighten rival candidates into complying with their demands.
