With regard to security, Vázquez Mota indicated that the army must return to its barracks, but as part of what would be a second phase of the fight against organized crime.Of course, Calderón wasn't saying anything hugely different before he was president, or even a year into his presidency, unless I am mistaken. Nonetheless, her instincts are seem right, and her previously reported comments on organized crime consisted in little more than an affirmation that she would continue combating it, so this is encouraging.
Nevertheless, she felt that today there are citizens in some states who are afraid to go outside without the presence of the armed forces.
"Therefore, I think that we have to continue strengthening the local institutions, the police, the ministerios públicos; it's a task of shared responsibility and a task in which the population should be involved in a significant way," she said.
Other Vázquez Mota info: she remains the runaway favorite in the PAN race according to Milenio, and Humberto Moreira included her alongside AMLO as the principal threats to the PRI in 2012.
