Mexico president floats idea of recall referendum in March 2021

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Tuesday proposed holding a recall referendum on his presidency on March 21, 2021, if Congress cannot agree to a constitutional change permitting the vote during mid-term legislative elections.

Lopez Obrador took office in December vowing to give the public a chance to vote him out of office halfway through his six-year term, but that plan has met resistance in the Senate from opposition lawmakers concerned about its implications.
