MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s ruling Morena party and its allies control 83 seats in the Senate, the party’s national president Mario Delgado said on Sunday, falling short of the two-thirds majority needed to change the constitution.

However, in the 500-member lower house of Congress, the ruling leftist coalition will have 372 seats, meeting the super-majority threshold, Delgado said in a post on social media platform X.
