“I’m sure we’ll have to close this administration very well until the last day,” he said.

The governor highlighted Junquera’s career as Minister of the Interior, Attorney General’s Office, and judge in the Federal Court of Conciliation and Arbitration as well as state’s ombudsman.

He also mentioned that in regard to the new Secretary of Health, he has management positions in this same state office.

Finally, the official thanked García López and Francisco Ignacio Ortiz Aldana, who for five years were in charge of the Secretaries of Government and Health, respectively.
