The deputies of Mexico rejected this Sunday the electrical reform promoted by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, failing to reach the necessary votes to advance.


Mexican deputies will discuss electricity reform

In a marathon day, the electricity sector reform project achieved 275 votes in favor, 223 against and 0 abstentions, far from the 332 votes necessary to approve the initiative.

This was the first time that the Chamber of Deputies rejected an initiative proposed by the ruling National Regeneration Movement (Morena).

The electricity reform did not have the support of opposition political groups, nor by the national and foreign private sector, who publicly expressed their disagreement with the initiative.

The objective of the reform promoted by López Obrador is to repeal the 2013 energy law, proposed by former President Enrique Peña Nieto, which according to AMLO grants greater benefits to private and foreign companies.

López Obrador's proposal aims to favor state power generation plants to be self-sufficient and, at the same time, cut energy sales from private projects that come from abroad.

Hours before the decision of the Chamber of Deputies, the Mexican president reiterated that he already had his plan B in case his proposal was not approved by the plenary.

It is expected that this Monday a new proposal will be delivered, which was signed by President López Obrador, which is a Reform to the Mining Law, so that lithium is exploited only by the State and not by private parties.
