I present to you, Morris, the 2012 candidate for the mayorship of the city of Xalapa, the capital of Mexican state of Verzacruz..
Yes, Morris is a cat and he is running for mayor this July 7th.
Morris has been put forward as presidential candidate on behalf of the people as a protest towards the current government situation. What started out as a Facebook page has now turned into a revolution with current surveys showing that Morris is in fact the most popular candidate this year.
If I could vote, I would vote for Morris! Stay tuned for the result of the election on July 7th!
