Local newspapers reported last week that Marciano Dzul,who was announced the
winner of Tulum's first-ever mayoral elections last Sunday,had to be
hospitalized after becoming sick in a cave.
The papers said that Dzul and
around 30 of his supporters were celebrating after the election in a cave near
Valladolid last week,when they started to feel sick. Reports said that members
of the group were admitted to various hospitals in the area for treatment from
suspected bat excrement poisoning.
Dzul,from the PRI party,won the
elections almost two-thirds of the vote.
