Vehicular tenure could be back soon

Morena already has one ally to implement vehicular tenure once again, since the PVEM party showed them support in the lower chamber. The measure is hoped to help “rescue public finances” by implementing this tax all over the country.

Yalitza Aparicio to be awarded by the Senate

What is going on at the National Anti-corruption System?

We've been told that the Senate has to solve an urgent case this week. They will have to approve or deny a proposal made the executive power to fill the vacancies of the anti-corruption magistrates, which were sent to the Senate while former President Peña Nieto was still in office.

Meanwhile, the opposition said it will request that the list of nominees are discussed at the Anti-corruption Committee.

Will they succeed?
