The Supreme Leader of Mexico is in favor of consultation on the assessment of former presidents

October 1, 2020

The Mexican Supreme Court this Thursday approved the consultation by six votes in favor and five against, bringing five former Mexican presidents to justice for alleged corruption.

“With a majority of six votes, the question of consultation is constitutional,” the court decided after a telematics session attended by the eleven judges that make up the court.

As a result, the Supreme Court rejected by a simple majority the appeal of Judge Luis María Aguilar, who requested that the consultation be ruled unconstitutional – which the country’s President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, had requested from the Senate.

The six judges who consider that a consultation is the law are the President of the Court, Arturo Zaldívar, and Judges Alfredo Gutiérrez Ortíz, Juan Luis González Alcántara, Ana Margarita Ríos Farjat, Yasmín Esquivel Mossa and Alberto Pérez Dayán.
