In plenary sessions of April 18 and 19, Mexico’s Supreme Court of Justice ruled on the constitutional controversies filed by the Federal Commission of Economic Competition and the Government of the State of Colima, respectively, against the amendment to the Electricity Industry Law presented by the Mexican President and approved by the Mexican Congress early in 2021.

 

In both cases the constitutional controversies were dismissed. In the case of the Federal Commission of Economic Competition, its constitutional controversy was dismissed by determining that the contested provisions do not produce an affectation in the sphere of authority of said autonomous constitutional body, therefore, lacking a legitimate interest to promote the constitutional controversy.

The constitutional controversy presented by the Government of the State of Colima was dismissed under the argument that it does not generate an invasion of the powers of the State of Colima, since the Federal Congress has the power to rule on electric energy and commerce.
