After a second round of votes, the Mexican Senate on Tuesday, March 12, elected Yasmín Esquivel Mossa to be the newest member of the National Supreme Court of Justice (SCJN), for a period of 15 years, substituting former Supreme Court Judge Margarita Luna Ramos.

A graduate of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) with a doctorate from the private Anáhuac University with advanced studies in administrative, fiscal and financial law, Esquivel Mossa has served a magistrate for the Mexico City Tribunal of Justice and has also worked with agrarian tribunals.

Esquivel Mossa, who was elected by a two-thirds majority, is the wife of millionaire and current government supplier José María Rioobó, but during her review at the Mexican Congress, she assured the senators that she would remain impartial and would show no favoritism due to her personal family connections.
