Mexican Election: Candidates for president: Fernandez de Cevallos: 'no lies'
Monday 15 August 1994
Mr Fernandez de Cevallos edged ahead of Ernesto Zedillo, the presidential candidate of the PRI, in the polls after a live television debate which was held in May. But afterwards he virtually stopped campaigning. That added to the 'deal with the PRI' theory. And at his closing rally in Mexico City on Saturday night, Mr Fernandez de Cevallos drew a crowd of only around 30,000. It was raining heavily but many Mexicans felt that his speech and demeanour were those of a man who was either not expecting to win, or was afraid of doing so. His campaign slogan is: 'For a Mexico without lies'.
