Former Guerrero Governor René Juárez Cisneros, who also served as coordinator of the centralist Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) bench in the Chamber of Deputies, died Sunday, July 25, at the age of 65, according to local authorities.
Although the Guerrero government did not report the cause of death, Juárez Cisneros had tested positive for covid-19 in April and was hospitalized at that time.
One month later, Dulce María Sauri, president of the Chamber of Deputies, said that Juárez Cisneros was “still in the recovery process.”
Juárez Cisneros ruled Guerrero from 1995 to 2005.
In the federal administration, he served as undersecretary at the Interior Secretariat.
His career in the Institutional Revolutionary included a period in which he held the position of national president in May 2018, this after the resignation of Enrique Ochoa and prior to the 2018 presidential elections.
