In the transformative landscape of Mexican politics, the 4T Administration, coined as the Fourth Transformation, stands as a beacon of change with a notable surge in female representation. Under the leadership of President López Obrador, the government has achieved absolute gender parity, a stark departure from the gender imbalance of its predecessor. This shift is not confined to the executive branch alone; Morena, a key political force, leads the charge in contributing women deputies to the Chamber, constituting a substantial 21%.
Central to the 4T's agenda is the principle of austerity, redefined beyond mere fiscal frugality to encompass a stringent control of corruption and administrative expenditure opulence. The administration has successfully slashed 3.2% of the budget, amounting to a significant 200 billion pesos in annual savings. However, this commitment to fiscal responsibility has not been without its hurdles.
