To mark the conclusion of the regular session of Congress and the start of the holiday season, President  Enrique Peña Nieto met today at the official residence of Los Pinos with members of the parliamentary groups of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), the Ecological Green Party of Mexico (PVEM) and the New Alliance Party (PANAL) in the House of Representatives.

Delegates from the three parties were led by their coordinators César Camacho Quiroz, Jesús Sesma Suárez and Luis Alfredo Valles Mendoza, respectively.

The meeting was also attended by the leaders of the PRI, Manlio Fabio Beltrones Rivera; the PVEM, Carlos Puente Salas; and the PANAL, Luis Castro Obregón.

The president expressed his appreciation for their support, which enabled the passage of various bills submitted by the president, which together help strengthen the country’s institutional framework and legal and juridical framework, and establish conditions of equality in the political arena.

By way of an example, he said that the House of Representatives has registered a high participation and presence of women in the 63rd Legislative Session as a result of the reform obliging political parties to assign half their candidacies to them.

He stressed that the support that PRI, PVEM and PANAL legislators provided for the national project he leads will permit the construction and gradual achievement of a Mexico whose development will contribute to the welfare of all Mexicans.

He recalled that the various structural reforms promoted by the government have already begun to yield benefits, enabling our country to deal positively with the challenges posed by a complex international economic scenario of volatility and risk aversion.

He urged them to feel proud for having supported several of the president's bills, which have enabled Mexico to rise and continue along the right track.

For their part, the PRI, PVEM and PANAL coordinators in the House of Representatives agreed to continue supporting the transformation project headed by President Peña Nieto.

They said that as a result of the new institutional framework achieved during the first half of the Administration, the country’s energy has been channeled and set in motion.
