Q. R. Governor Carlos Joaquin could become Mexico’s Ambassador to Canada

Mexico City, Mexico — A proposal has been made for current Quintana Roo Governor, Carlos Joaquín to become Mexico’s Ambassador to Canada. Joaquin, who is in his final political stretch as governor, would join numerous other former governors placed in diplomatic positions.

On Tuesday, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced the proposal to appoint Joaquin as the Ambassador to Canada, who first, needs to be approved by the Senate of Mexico and the Canadian Government.

“He is going to participate, he is going to represent us as Mexico’s Ambassador to Canada. At the right time, we are going to ask for the approval of the Canadian government,” said López Obrador during his morning conference.

Governor Joaquin will cease being the Governor of Quintana Roo on September 24, after which time, Governor-elect Mara Lezama will take his place.
