Given the Nuevo León Congress’ rejection of Eduardo Román González to be appointed president of the State Human Rights Commission (CEDH), the state government will propose Magda Yadira Robles Garza to the Congress for the position.

Manuel González Flores, the secretary general of the state government, said that they are preparing the dossier with the proposal because the issue of appointing a new public advocate is urgent. The position has been vacant since late 2015, when Minerva Martínez Garza’s administration ended.

After weeks of discussions and hearings, the state Congress rejected the proposal of Román González to the position with 23 votes in favor, 16 against and one abstention. The 28 votes in favor necessary for the approval of his nomination were not reached.
