Ernestina Godoy. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador defended the confirmation of Ernestina Godoy as Attorney General of Mexico City, stating that she is a woman of integrity, honesty, and of an incorruptible nature. President López Obrador praised Godoy for being a skilled lawyer and for her efforts in combating high-profile cases of corruption, such as the so-called real estate cartel.
" I support her, but the opposition will vote against her. However, I must express my opinion. I always speak my mind. She is an outstanding lawyer, a woman of integrity, honesty, and incorruptibility. I have known her for many years. But there is a conservative opposition that disagrees with her continued role. They would like to install corrupt lawyers there to protect the interests of the oligarchy and the criminals," he said.
Last September, the head of the Attorney General's Office requested the City Judicial Council to initiate the confirmation process for her position. She submitted a written request to the Council, the governing body overseeing the confirmation process, stating her intention to undergo the procedure to solidify the transition from the procurator's office to the attorney general's office.
AMLO Criticizes Supreme Court Justice. For the third consecutive day, amid the debate over the cut of MX$15 billion (US$819 million) from the Judiciary's trust, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador criticized retired Supreme Court Justice José Ramón Cossío Díaz, accusing him of being supportive of the PAN party.
López Obrador pointed out that the former Supreme Court voted against punishing those responsible for the ABC Daycare fire in Hermosillo, Sonora, where 49 minors tragically lost their lives. He also labeled Cossío Díaz as a supporter of former President Felipe Calderón and now of businessman Claudio X. González.
