Fox and AMLO to meet face to face this Friday
According to Lopez Obrador, the change of heart by President Fox last week was not the result of some secret negotiation. They have yet to meet, but plan to do so this Friday. Lopez Obrador says that they should take advantage of the truce to be prudent and conciliatory.
According to Fox, the AMLO desafuero issue is resolved. The new AG will review the file and decide what to do. But, Fox maintains that last week's announcement about the change in the AG's office was necessary to ensure that the 2006 elections are considered open and democratic.
When Fox and AMLO meet on Friday, they will be alone, unlike earlier meetings where each brought political backup. Fox is trying to downplay the meeting, saying it will be just another work meeting to discuss policy, including public safety and the Seguro Popular.
