Only four months before the deadline to enforce the Local Anti-Corruption System (SLA) in Mexico, only 1 percent of the states — Nayarit and Chiapas — have enacted the bill.
According to the “Semáforo Anti-Corrupción,” (an observatory implemented by the National Institute for Competitiveness (IMCO)), Mexican Transparency and Coparmex, there are 25 states that have not yet enacted the SLA.
“Some states are waiting for a Constitutional Reform, since they cannot work towards the bill without it,” said IMCO’s Max Kaiser.
Satisfactory reforms have been implemented in only 10 states (Aguascalientes, Baja California Sur, Chiapas, Querétaro, Nayarit, Puebla, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosí, Sonora, and Yucatán) while three others posses Regular Reforms (Mexico City, Guanajuato, and Michoacán) and three more have Deficient Reforms (Jalisco, Morelos, and Veracruz).
Campeche, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Oaxaca, Tabasco and Tamaulipas don’t yet have the bill. The deadline for the implementation of the reforms in on July 18, 2017.
Progress on this issue will be presented by the “Semáforo” in one month’s time.
