“Mexican Environment Minister Resigns After Critique”

“MEXICO CITY — Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced the resignation of his environment minister Wednesday, nearly a month after a leaked recording showed that cabinet member criticizing the president’s administration.

López Obrador said Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Victor Manuel Toledo had been considering quitting even before the leaked recording, which clearly showed he was unhappy with the administration’s direction on environmental issues.

“Public service produces stress” and “not all of us are made to support the pressure,” López Obrador said.”

The Associated Press had the story September 2, 2020.
