The Masons are a very discreet group, so much that they deny even exist, said Rodolfo Tellez-Cuevas, author of a book about Freemasonry's role in politics and the Mexican public administration. Yesterday, the Mexican presented the book at the Institute of Public Administration, Sinaloa.
"This book contributes to the discussion of the secular state," he said, "it aims to discover the role of Freemasonry in the political and administrative sphere, not about the rites of Freemasonry, but how Freemasonry has developed since 1760, when it comes to country.
He stated that symbolizes the demystifying of freemasonry and power. One such myths is broken and stands that to be a President in Mexico one should be a freemason. The author reveals that not even half of the presidents of Mexico have been Freemasons.
The last Mexican president Ernesto Zedillo was a freemason. Salinas was also a Freemason, but for a short time.
