México CITY.- President Andrés Manuel López Obrador responded to the recent turmoil in the markets caused by his proposed reform of the Judiciary, stating that “justice is above the markets.” During a press conference, the president stressed the importance of choosing justice over economic interests.

The president is confident that his initiative, which proposes that judges, magistrates and ministers be elected by direct vote of citizens, will be approved in September, before his term ends.
