Ricardo Monreal, leader of the Morena senators, said that the last part of “Plan B” for electoral reform has not been sent to the Presidency of the Republic for publication, since the president of the Board of Directors of the lower house, Santiago Creel , has not signed the document.
Monreal explained this to clarify that if the reform has not been published, it is not by decision of President López Obrador, who has 30 days to endorse or make comments on the document.
The morenista said that the lack of signature “delays” the publication, although it will not affect the times for people or groups who want to challenge the regulations before the Judiciary.
On the other hand, the president of the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Deputies, Santiago Creel, explained that he did not sign his signature due to a legal technical error by the Senate.
In a press conference, he said that the Senate erased aspects of the reform that could no longer be reviewedsince the Chamber of Deputies had already closed its participation in the legislative process.
However, he maintained that after a review of the text and a meeting with leaders of both chambers, it was determined that the signing of the document could no longer be delayed, in order to send it to the President of the Republic as quickly as possible.
He maintained that this does not affect the presentation of challenges to the reform known as ‘Plan B’; He even advanced that he will exercise his legal power to ask the Supreme Court to address the issue with priority attention.
