Quintana Roo gets a new governor

Although the results are still not official, it appears the people of Quintana Roo, Mexico have a new Governor. The results so far in Sunday’s election indicate that Joaquin Ernesto Hendricks, candidate of the ruling P.R.I., will be victorious over his nearest rival, the P.R.D.’s Gaston Allegre. Hendricks, who is of Garifuna ancestry, was born in Chetumal, although his family traces its origins to the coast of Honduras. The new governor is an attorney and has served, among other posts, as the Secretary of Rural Development for Quintana Roo. Besides the race for Governor, Sunday’s election was also to select alcaldes for a number of municipalities. The official results are expected to be released on Wednesday.
