SUMMARY – MORNING PRESIDENTIAL PRESS CONFERENCE – TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2024

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador welcomed the Chamber of Deputies’ approval of the Pension Reform, as it corrects the negative effects of the neoliberal period on the income of workers who were retiring from their jobs. The new reform, with its Pension Fund for Well-Being, will benefit 28 million workers.

The head of the Executive Branch warned that there is a risk that the Pension Reform will be declared unconstitutional because the Supreme Court (SCJN) is at the service of the privileged few. “There is no basis for declaring the law unconstitutional, only the obsession of some Supreme Court justices against what we represent,” the President said.

President López Obrador pointed out that the purpose of the Amnesty Law is to reward individuals who are detained and provide information on priority cases for the State, such as the disappearance of the 43 Ayotzinapa students. In this context, he confirmed that on June 3 he will meet with the parents of the 43 teacher training college students.
