This November 13, the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador is celebrating his 67th birthday, amid many indications, including the handling of the pandemic in the country and the emergency that the southern states, in particular Tabasco and Veracruz, are suffering due to the floods.
In the traditional morning conference on Thursday 12, López Obrador asked his followers to refrain from holding celebrations in his honor, assuring that he would receive the hugs “by telepathy”; However, since that day, at night, dozens of groups and supporters of AMLO stood outside the National Palace to give him different serenades.
About 50 people came to the venue to sing the traditional Mañanitas.
