In the case of Graciela Márquez, her appointment must be ratified by the Senate, in the case of Tatiana Clouthier as the next Secretary of the Economy, it depends solely on the President.
López Obrador affirmed that the objective of those who will occupy these positions is that they comply with “honesty, that is what matters most to us. Because nothing has damaged Mexico more than the dishonesty of the rulers, then we have to completely eradicate corruption and that is why the five women are being proposed in very important positions for the government. “
