‘Golden line scandal may be the left’s Waterloo: Vázquez’ (siete24)
MEXICO CITY – Once inquiries from the Special Investigative Committee of Mexico City’s Legislative Assembly (ALDF) are completed, the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) will file a lawsuit with the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) against former Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard over problems with construction on subway Line 12.
The Mexico City government shut down 11 of 20 stations on line 12 of the subway on March 11 for structural failures discovered by the city’s engineers. A report from a third-party company said on Saturday that repairs will take five weeks and cost 25 million pesos ($1.9 million).
Mexico City’s PRI elections Secretary Juan Carlos Vázquez told Rumbo de México reporters that the so-called “golden line” — named for the subway line’s color code — is not Ebrard’s only political blunder, but also that of the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD).
