The Security Secretariat in Michoacan reported the murder of the Citizens Movement (MC) candidate Alma Barragan in the state of Guanajuato.

The Moreleon mayor candidate was driving when she was shot to death by unidentified assailants, just a few hours after she had attended a campaign event.

“Violence in this electoral process must stop. We call on the federal and state governments to guarantee candidates’ safety. Mexico deserves peace,” MC party said.
