The former governor of neighboring Sonora has been nominated as Mexico’s consul in Barcelona, Spain.

Claudia Pavlovich, whose six-year term ended last September, was one of two former governors to be nominated for diplomatic posts. Both are also members of Mexico’s PRI party, whose leader said that they could face expulsion from the party if they were to accept.

Mexican president and founder of the Morena party Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador described the threatened expulsion as “rude” and “excessive,” during his Tuesday press conference. Pavlovich’s successor and Morena member Alfonso Durazo wished the ex-governor well in representing Mexico abroad.
