Mexico's finance minister, Carlos Urzúa, quit abruptly on Tuesday, with a letter of resignation that appeared highly critical of the current administration, and raised questions about the president's much-vaunted promise to reduce corruption.
Urzua tweeted: "There were too many disagreements in economic matters. This was motivated by influential figures of the current government with a patent conflict of interest", he said.

Urzua, a doctor in economics, indicated in his letter that some public policy decisions of the present administration were made without "sufficient back up".

"It is precisely in the area of inequalities where we have to work", said Herrera.
Before the government took office on December 1, Urzua was tasked with meeting with dozens of investment funds to convey that the government was center-left, rather than leftist.
Urzua has been a long-standing ally of Lopez Obrador, being his finance secretary when AMLO, as the president is widely known, was mayor of Mexico City last decade.
Herrera, who appeared with Lopez Obrador in the video, said that Mexico is a country of enormous resources but also great contrasts.
