The points considered were: a protocol as tool of governability that looks after rights and aids efficient governmental action; initiatives for the maximum use of new technologies to help communicate governmental actions; reviewing the law on civic culture to improve civic courts and their actions to create expedite tools for the citizen to denounce abuse.

Additionally, the official proposed to reform the law on civic culture to underline the obligations of citizens, as well as pushing forward a series of meetings with civil society, academics and specialists to gather their opinions on the subject.

The meeting was called by the President of the Government Commission of the Mexico City Congress (ALDF), Leonel Luna, who indicated that the aim is a conduct on the part of public figures that does not violate human rights, privacy or human dignity.

“There is a precise lawful framework, and the use of social media cannot substitute this framework at any point and even less the legislation. That is what we are calling this for this analysis and above all the proposal of this protocol.”

-Leonel Luna. Mexico City Congress

It was agreed that the Institute for Access to Public Information and Data Protection (InfoDF) would be the competent body to concentrate proposals and seek the opinion of those participating in the new draft for the political constitution of Mexico City.
