With only eight days left until the May 31 deadline for all public servants of Mexico’s federal government to submit a declaration of their assets, only five of the 19 secretaries of states have fulfilled said obligation, with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) yet to do so himself.

The General Law of Responsibilities requires all federal public servants to declare their assets in the case of illegal enrichment, and states that any official who does not comply within the designated time period may see their position suspended from three months to a year.

So far, only Secretary of National Defense Luis Cresencio Sandoval, Secretary of the Navy José Rafael Ojeda Durán, Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection Rosa Icela Rodríguez, Secretary of Health Jorge Alcocer and Secretary of Wellbeing Javier May have submitted their declarations.
