The journalist Elena Chávez González recounts what she lived closely with AMLO while she was a partner of César Yáñez.

The writer Elena Chávez González has placed herself in the public eye after her most recent book brought to light political betrayals, personal ambitions, infidelities, labor abuses, corruption and authoritarianism in the close circle of current Mexican President Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO).

It is “El Rey del Cash”, a text with a prologue by the journalist Anabel Hernández, who details what she perceived during 18 years living closely with the president of Mexico, AMLO, being a partner of the politician César Yáñez, one of the men most appreciated by López Obrador since 2000. She served as his spokesperson when he was head of the Mexico City government and during his presidential campaign, until 2018.

In the form of a chronicle, it recounts the construction of the financial, personal and political environment of the man who has held the presidential chair since 2018, assuring that López Obrador’s greatest love and obsession has always been power.

Chávez González details “how the president’s operators obtained billions of pesos for a long time to pay their boss, and incidentally, they also served themselves with the big spoon .” The purpose of the recount is to understand the emergence and path of the National Regeneration Movement ( Morena ) and the so-called ” Fourth Transformation ” (4T).

The book will be on pre-sale this Saturday, October 1, however, before it was released to the public, it was already crowned the best seller in the Amazon book section.
