Mexican President to enact energy reform soon

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said he would soon enact a sweeping overhaul of Mexico's ailing energy sector.

"It will be necessary to wait for a declaration from Congress's permanent committee, which will surely happen in the coming days, and once that happens, I will immediately enact the reform," Pena Nieto said while on a state visit to Turkey.

David Penchyna, a Senator for the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party and head of the powerful energy committee, said Congress could push through implementing laws as soon as March.
