Castañeda: ‘The most transcendental proposal since NAFTA’

Former Foreign Minister Jorge Castañeda, who took the government to the Inter-American Human Rights Court over the issue of independent candidacies, called the political reform proposal “the most transcendental proposal since Salinas [called for] the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1993.” “Without reforming the essential institutions of the old authoritarian priista regime, Mexico is paralyzed. The Mexican political system, ever since the PRI lost its majority the Chamber in 1997, hasn’t functioned. It doesn’t allow decisions to be taken, to innovate, nor confront the country’s challenges,” he wrote.
