I’m not looking for anything, I beg you not to take anything wrong with me, “said the star during the press conference.
The 73-year-old interpreter continued to mention: “I don’t know what I’m coming here for, I just know that there are people behind me who are going to teach me how to handle this matter (…) Here I am with a lot of love, which prevails in life is love and it is what I have for my land Veracruz ”.
Francisca Viveros Barradas, artistically known as Paquita la del Barrio, was born in Alto Lucero in the state of Veracruz in Mexico, so she is running for the post of deputy for the district of Misantla that belongs to the town where she was born.
