The Debate over The Debate in Images

After the first month of presidential campaigns, Mexico held it’s first official debate with the candidates contending for Office.

The Highlights of the debate:

Gabriel Quadri, representing “Nueva Alianza” (PANAL), the less popular candidate surprised the audience with his wit to get past political accusations and actually speaking about real proposals and solutions for the questions asked.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador, representing “Partido de la Revolución Democrática” (PRD) accused the media of being owned by corporations and Enrique Peña Nieto’s party, he said they build a complete system to manufacture politicans and presidents through T.V.

Josefina Vázquez Mota, representing Partido Acción Nacional (PAN) stayed within her campaign slogans, talked about being different and accused Peña Nieto of being a liar and a corrupted politician.

Enrique Peña Nieto representing “Partido Revolucionario Institucional” (PRI) complained about not having enough time to replicate and defended himself as well as accusing both Josefina and Andrés Manuel.

The model presenting the roles for the intervention of the candidates with her cleavage and outfit caused uproar and indignation because according to many citizens it made it look like a circus, lacked sobriety and made everyone wonder…what the hell?

The images of what occured during the debate started appearing moments after the interventions of candidates in Twitter, here are some of them:
