In the document sent by the legal advisor María Estela Ríos González, it was recalled that the Senate approved the appointment of Victoria Rodriquez Ceja as a member of the Governing Board of Banco de México.

With this, Victoria Rodríguez Ceja will become the first woman to be governor of the Bank of Mexico as of January 1.

During his approval only as a member of Banxico, opposition senators criticized the election of Victoria Rodríguez because she would be appointed by the Executive as governor of Banxico.

Legislators who were a minority considered that the former Undersecretary of Expenditures does not have the requirements or the monetary experience to be at the head of the central bank.
