Beltrones says reform proposals ‘incomplete’

PRI Senate leader Manlio Fabio Beltrones, who proposed his own set of political reforms in June, “welcomed” the initiative, while calling the proposals “incomplete.” He said that the moves would strengthen the Executive (a view shared by most observers) and needed to be balanced with other measures to maintain checks and balances. Beltrones supports re-election, reducing the size of Congress, and popular referendums for constitutional issues. He also advocates Senate ratification of cabinet officers, recall elections for elected officials, and greater accountability through a strengthened government audit agency.
