Ex-first lady wants to run as in­de­pen­dent

Star Tribune - - DEAL! -

Mex­i­can for­mer first lady Mar­garita Zavala said she will try to col­lect more than 866,000 sig­na­tures to run as an in­de­pen­dent can­di­date for pres­i­dent next year. Zavala is the wife of ex-Pres­i­dent Felipe Calderon, who gov­erned from 2006 to 2012. She has for­mally reg­is­tered her can­di­dacy and will need to col­lect the huge quan­tity of sig­na­tures by Feb. 12. The for­mer first lady re­signed last week from the con­ser­va­tive Na­tional Ac­tion Party, call­ing its lead­er­ship anti-demo­cratic.
