Mexico City, June 4 (SinEmbargo). - Former governor of Quintana Roo, Roberto Borge Angulo (2011-2016), was arrested in Panama when he was about to board an airplane.
Borge, a man described by the president Enrique Peña Nieto as "the new generation of the PRI", arrived at the gubernatura by the Institutional Revolutionary.
The arrest comes just on the night of controversial elections in Mexico, when the PRI has declared itself a winner in the State of Mexico and opposition parties demand a "state election."
