President Enrique Peña Nieto said on Monday that the political parties and representatives of civil society are unified in their position toward gathering forces to strengthen law enforcement in the country after the events in Guerrero on Sept. 26 sparked national and international outcry.

“This position is welcome so that we can unify our position in favor of the rule of law to combat corruption and put and end to impunity,” said Peña Nieto during the presentation of Energy Reforms at the National Palace in Mexico City.

Independent of the investigation underway by the Attorney General’s Office, it is essential to use institutional means to ensure that events like those in Guerrero don’t happen again, said the president. National political forces must convene to undertake fundamental institutional changes in Mexico, he said.

“In the coming days, representatives of the Mexican State, political forces and social organizations will meet to make the commitment to undertake fundamental changes to strengthen our institutions and, above all, ensure that the rule of law in our country is trustworthy,” said Peña Nieto.
