Cancun, Q.R. — It will be near the end of September when the new mayor of Cancun is sworn in. On September 26, Ana Patricia Peralta de la Peña will be sworn in as the new head of the municipality of Benito Juárez, making her the new mayor of Cancun.
She will replace the former two-time mayor, Mara Lezama, who will become the Governor of Quintana Roo. In between the political shifting, Lezama has appointed Lourdes Latife Cardona to take the Cancun City Hall reins until the swearing in ceremony of Peralta de la Peña.
The swearing in date was confirmed by Cardona during a radio interview Wednesday with Radio Ayuntamiento. Peralta de la Peña will officially become mayor one day after Mara Lezama is sworn in as the new Governor of Quitana Roo, taking over from Carlos Joaquin who has been governor for the past six years.
At that time, Ana Patricia Peralta de la Peña will be sworn in as the new head of the municipality of Benito Juárez by Governor-elect Mara Lezama. Earlier this week, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced the proposal to appoint Governor Carlos Joaquin as the Ambassador to Canada.
