The National Action Party (PAN) in the Chamber of Deputies informed that it will request the presence of Treasury and Public Finance Secretary Luis Videgaray, as well as Energy Secretary Pedro Joaquín Coldwell and members of Petróleos Mexicanos’ (Pemex) administrative board, so that they can explain what is happening in the company.
