Pena Nieto on 60th Anniversary of Women's Suffrage in Mexico

Enrique Pena Nieto - Presidency of the Republic

Today, I had the honor of commemorating the 60th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in Mexico. As president, I am the first to recognize and value their political participation in national life.

Today we celebrate an act of justice: the constitutional recognition of their political rights. The 1953 Reform was undoubtedly transformative reform that led to major changes in the nation’s history.

However, I am convinced that far more women are needed in the country’s politics. To achieve this, I submitted a bill to Congress to amend the Federal Code of Electoral Institutions and Procedures.

If approved, political parties will be obliged to ensure that 50% of their candidacies for federal deputies and senators should be for women.

It will also guarantee that their substitutes are also women, thereby preventing the subterfuge that undermines political equality.

We will work from now on, so that our girls, whose international day is celebrated today, can be the future agents of change that the Prosperous and Inclusive Mexico of tomorrow will require.
