SUMMARY – MORNING PRESIDENTIAL PRESS CONFERENCE – FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 2024

In the context of the election campaigns, President López Obrador asked journalists who cover the morning press conferences to collaborate in order to avoid violating the regulations that restrict public officials from expressing their opinions on the campaigns, candidates, or parties.

Starting on March 4, the Mexican President will present the life and trajectory of various prominent figures in the country’s history, such as Miguel Hidalgo, Benito Juárez, Leona Vicario, Carmen Serdán, among others. “It very much helps to understand why we are proposing 20 reforms to the Constitution; why we want to return to the Constitution its libertarian spirit, its public character, its social justice orientation, which has been taken away,” he explained.
