As President López Obrador's term nears its conclusion, this panel will address the current state of the rule of law in Mexico and the primary challenges facing the incoming administration. Key concerns include attempts to exert control over the judiciary, the absence of substantial anti-corruption initiatives, and the proposed weakening of electoral oversight bodies. In early February, four months prior to the election, the President introduced a series of constitutional reforms encompassing various issues as part of his electoral strategy to secure victory for his party's candidate. This panel will analyze the significance and potential implications of these proposed changes on the rule of law.
