MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Monday appointed the commander of the National Guard as deputy minister of security.

General Lopez Obrador said at a regular press conference that General Luis Rodriguez will join the Ministry of Security and that David Cordova will replace him as commander of the National Guard.

Pandemonium erupted after former Deputy Security Minister Ricardo Mejia stepped down on Friday to run for governor in the northern state of Coahuila against López Obrador’s ruling Morena party.

President Lopez Obrador is increasingly relying on military officers to take on non-military roles. Soldiers lead.

Last year, the Mexican Congress passed a reform bill backed by López Obrador to transfer control of the National Guard, a historically civilian-led agency, to the military.
