The PRD will file a lawsuit against President López Obrador

If you thought the PRD was extinct, you’d be surprised to know that the political party is getting ready to present a lawsuit against President Andrés Manuel López Obrador after he asked business leaders to voluntarily contribute to the raffle of the presidential plane and obtained MXN $1,500 million. PRD members argue that there is a crime called extortion. Today, PRD leaders plan to file a lawsuit at the Attorney General’s Office. We’ve been reminded that the PRD is practically extinct now, so they have a lot of time to focus on certain cases.

We’ve been told that in three weeks, senators have only approved two bills: protective measures for women who report violence and the establishment of the National Atopic Dermatitis Day on November 27. When will senators finish their pending cases? These are urgent matters such as legal reform, outsourcing, and cannabis regulation. So the reforms could be ready by April or May.
