López Obrador insisted that the reform must be carried out as soon as possible so that Mexicans can elect judges

Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that he plans to send two reform initiatives next February to modify the Judicial Branch of the Federation ( PJF) and the National Guard (GN).

“The National Guard may be sooner, but the plan for electing judges and magistrates, the entire reform of the Judiciary will be issued in February. Also, before the end of our period, we are going to send that the right of the disabled be elevated to constitutional rank,” said the president in his morning conference ons Thursday, December 7th.

On the reform regarding the security corporation, he said it could be constitutional since he recalled that in January the Guardia Nacional will have to disincorporate from the Army and he wants to avoid this.

Last September the Court declared invalid the articles that establish the affiliation of the GN to the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena).

Given this decision, President López Obrador has constantly insisted that his security corporation, which replaced the defunct Federal Police, must be administered and under the command of the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena).

Last April, López Obrador had established a position before the Court on the issue of separating the GN from the Sedena and said that the ministers were clouded by their conservatism and politicking, “they don’t care about the safety of the people, they use technicalities as a pretext and legal arguments.

However, since the creation of the GN, the federal Congress established that it should be a civil corporation under the command of the Secretariat of Security and Citizen Protection (SSPC), but after its creation, the Tabasco native decreed that it should be under the command of the Sedena, a fact that has been described by the opposition and civil society organizations as a step towards the militarization of public security.
