Congress fails to back legal challenge to closing Luz y Fuerza

Efforts by the PRD and PT in Congress to challenge the liquidation of Luz y Fuerza on constitutional grounds fell well short. Only 132 Deputies of the required 250 signed the resolution, as the PRI stood aside. If the resolution had passed, it would have obliged the Supreme Court to review the liquidation decree. After the motion failed, Labor Secretary Javier Lozano promptly reopened the centers for former employees to sign up for the buyout payments. The second round of buyouts will provide only 70% of the amount that was available in the first round, and will be available until December 23. (Universal 11/25, 11/26)
