Mexico’s Second Collegiate Court Specializing in Economic Competition, Broadcasting and Telecommunications voted unanimously on Thursday, July 1, to revoke a definitive suspension that had been granted to halt the implementation of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s controversial electricity reform bill.

The collegiate court, composed of three magistrates, agreed to revoke the suspension because they considered that the reforms to Mexico’s electricity law did not, by themselves, pose serious harm to individuals or companies.

The new reforms, which would prioritize state-own carbon-based energy suppliers over their private-sector clean energy counterparts, have been challenged both in Mexican and international courts.

The case before the Second Collegiate Court will now pass to the First Collegiate Court Specializing in Economic Competition for a final verdict.
