The Chamber of Deputies is currently debating an initiative by the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) against the direct appointment of Attorney General Raúl Cervantes Andrade as Prosecutor General.

Leader of The National Action Party (PAN) Marko Cortés Mendoza, the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) Francisco Martínez Neri and the Citizens’ Movement Clemente Castañeda have all said that they will vote in favor of the PRI’s initiative, but that they will leave a door open for Cervantes Andrade’s nomination for the position.

“There might be foul play here. Let’s not forget that the current initiative proposed by the PRI is the same as the president’s proposal,” said Martínez Neri.
