Mexico City Overflows With Protesters in Response to Electoral Reform

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.9 | Relevance 4.4

On Sunday thousands of citizens gathered in approximately 82 cities in Mexico to protest against the electoral reform that Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador calls “Plan B.”  The amendment would significantly modify the electoral process established in the nation, resulting in a reduction of over 85% of personnel and the regulation of salaries. Non-profit organizations, as well as opposition parties to the Lopez Obrador administration, have expressed their discontent with the decision approved by the Mexican Senate.  Civilians will continue to maintain their position in the so-called “Pink March” to prevent the Mexican Supreme Court from passing the amendment into law.
