A close ally of Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has threatened members of the country’s electoral body over his disqualified governorship candidacy, a sign of growing political tensions less than two months before key midterm elections.

Felix Salgado Macedonio, whose candidacy for governor of the state of Guerrero was annulled last month by electoral authority INE after missing a campaign finance deadline, said he will go after seven members of the body if he isn’t reinstated.
