President backs his Government Secretary in “complex and difficult situation”

President Felipe Calderón made his first public statements on Government Secretary Fernando Gómez Mont’s resignation from the PAN last week. In a TV interview, and later reinforced with an official press release, the President said, “He is a loyal man, a Government Secretary who fulfills his responsibilities …and who fully enjoys my confidence….He is an effective interlocutor with the different political actors, with the opposition, with the PAN itself.” Calderón also said in the interview, “Truly, this is a complex and difficult situation for me. I believe that this situation came about through a series of problems and misunderstandings that should not have occurred.”(Excelsior 2/17, Presidencia 2/16)
