Mexico: Senate passes Presidential Recall Election Law

Mexico's Senate has passed a recall election law for the President, as President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador says the law would require him to face a recall vote halfway through his term. Obrador originally proposed a recall every two years.

Obrador is disputing the claim that he is trying to use these changes as a way to seek a second term (Mexico limits presidents to a single six year term). The law passed the lower house, but Obrador's supporters do not appear to have the 2/3rds vote needed to get a constitutional amendment passed.
