Still fears a return to Mexico
Mexican actress Kate del Castillo has denied Wednesday that she has an interest of the governorship in the State of Mexico. The denial comes following the presentation of a document, purportedly on behalf of the actress, in which the State requested a change in the rules.
"It is false, " said the actress to the question of whether this newspaper is looking to run for the next election. "It was offered to me to, but I refused, " she added.
Mexican press began speculating Wednesday on a possible candidacy of actress when her lawyers reportedly presented an inquiry on her behalf, before the Upper Chamber of the Federal Electoral Tribunal (TEPJF) about requirements for registration of an independent candidate. The challenge, according to this version, would like to pave the way for Del Castillo to a hypothetical candidacy in 2017. Del Castillo denies any link with the document.
"Someone did that without consulting me," she says.
Another requirement would be a single nationality. Del Castillo became a United States citizen more than a year ago.
According to information published by the magazine Proceso, Xavier Gonzalez Zirión businessman and journalist Pedro Ferriz de Con approached the actress about the race for the governorship of the State by independent pathway. Del Castillo did confirm that it has had a proposal to this effect, which she refused.
Since the revelation of her friendship with Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, the world 's most famous drug trafficker, actress Kate del Castillo has stated that it is afraid to return to Mexico . Del Castillo is still in the cross-hairs of justice for his secret meeting with Guzman in December 2015 when he was the most wanted man in Mexico. She has always said that his only interest was to make a biopic about the drug dealer.
