Mexican senators propose constitutional changes to end presidential impunity

A group of opposition senators proposed changes to Mexico's constitution that would end presidential impunity, Reuters reported.

The president could be impeached and face trial for corruption for up to three years after leaving the office under the proposed changes. A sitting president cannot be impeached and can only be put on trial for treason and other serious crimes under Mexico's current constitution.

The Dec. 7 proposal comes amid graft scandals within Mexico's ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party and allegations of conflict of interest against Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.
