As part of the anniversary of the promulgation of the Political Constitution of 1917, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that he would propose at the end of the current school year changes in the school calendar so that the historical dates are commemorated on the corresponding day and thus eliminate his advance to Mondays and the so-called “bridges”. The president explained that the objective is to recover the historical memory of the country and said he is aware that the issue will generate controversy.
The proposal of the Secretary of Tourism for its part will seek to strengthen tourism and economic activities such as El Buen Fin that take place during the bridges.
