Mexico City: Mexico's former football manager Miguel Herrera, who was fired this week after allegedly punching a reporter, is under investigation over whether he broke election laws by tweeting his support for a party.

Prosecutors are seeking to question Herrera over his tweets in favour of the Green Party during the June 7 midterm election, an official in the attorney general's office told AFP on Friday. Agents went to his home in Monterrey on Thursday to deliver a summons to appear before prosecutors “for the probable commission of an electoral crime,” but he wasn't there.

The agents will return next week to deliver the summons,” the source said.
