Morena and his PVEM and PT allies tonight unanimously approved President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s Republican Plan “B” in the Senate with a vote against Morenista coordinator Ricardo Monreal and another legislator on that bench, which they rejected. joined in doing. Opposition groups to reform six electoral systems.

There was great hope, because after a special vote was introduced against Montreal, the version circulated in the majority group that the other eight members of the Cherry Party group would join in their rejection of the reform, which in the end did not happen. Only Fernando Espino voted against the present of the Bench.

The opinion was approved generally by 69 votes in favor and 53 against and in particular the discussion began, which would last for several hours, as 1,244 reservations were presented, meaning about 500 articles of the six laws. Those who make up are proposals for amendment.
