  • Description

    Mexico's president-elect, Jose Lopez Portillo, has been on a three-day visit to Venezuela.

    SYNOPSIS: Senor Portillo, his wife, and three children arrived in the capital, Caracas, on Tuesday night (21 September). They were greeted by President Carlos Andrews Perez and other government officials. The president-elect will start his six-year term on the first of December. He takes over from President Luis Echaverria. From the airport, Senor Portillo was taken to Government House.

    Later the two leaders discussed relations between their countries. Reports from Caracas said that Senor Portillo outlined the foreign policy he will adopt when he takes over the Mexican leadership. Senor Portillo's candidature for president was strongly supported by Senor Echeverria and the powerful Revolutionary Institutional Party machine - the dominating force in Mexican politics since the 1930s. Senor Portillo, who's 56, was Finance Minister until his nomination for president, and before that he was a professor of law.
