Keeping the Prez Chained
According to Excelsior, Mexicans aren't too thrilled about the new freedoms granted the president last week. As I wrote last week, now the president only has to submit a written version of the interminable informe, and he (or she) no longer must request permission from the senate to leave the country. I think these are good changes, but Mexicans as a whole respectfully disagree. Three quarters say the informe should be read aloud, and 60 percent believe that the president should only leave the country with senatorial permission.
