Ernestina Godoy asks Congress to finish the ratification process – El Sol de México

The Attorney General of Justice of Mexico City, Ernestina Godoy Ramos, asked the capital’s Congress to finalize its ratification process with the Plenary vote.

The official sent a letter to the president of the Board of Directors, Congresswoman María Gabriela Salido, and to the president of the Political Coordination Board, Martha Ávila, so that, before January 9, the date on which her position ends, the legislators vote whether or not to keep her in office for four more years.

“Please arrange for the opinion approved by the Administration and Prosecution Commission of Justice, in which the ratification in the position I occupy is deemed favorable, to be submitted to a vote of the Plenary, in order to conclude the constitutional and legal procedure provided for such purposes,” he states in the letter.

In the letter, dated this Friday, Godoy Ramos questions that since December 13, the capital’s Congress has not released the ratification proposal.

The prosecutor recalls that the Citizen Judicial Council and the Head of Government of Mexico City gave their approval for her to continue in office.

The Permanent Commission of the capital’s Congress was summoned to meet on January 10, one day after Godoy Ramos ends his term. Given this situation, Morena analyzes calling an earlier meeting to vote on ratification.

Morena and allies require a qualified majority to keep Godoy Ramos at the head of the Prosecutor’s Office, that is, 44 votes, which they did not have in the last ordinary session, on December 15.
