For the second time in less than 15 days, the Congress of the State of Baja California failed to pass the reform to allow equal same-sex marriage.
16 votes were registered in favour, however, as it was a constitutional reform, it was missing a vote to be able to approve Opinion 51 of the Governance, Legislation and Constitutional Points Commission.
Opinion 48 of this Commission was rejected in plenary 15 days ago, so it was returned to committees, now reassigning number 51.
The articles under discussion were Article 7 of the Constitution of Baja California in addition to 143, 145, 161, 169, 170, 174, 176, 177, 179, 181, 182, 184, 186, 205,208, 213, 214, 215, 216, 217, 218, 220, 224, 291 in addition to repealing Article 144 of the Civil Code for the State of California.
Only the DEPUTY of the PRI, David Ruvalcaba changed the meaning of his vote in favor, so they joined the suffrage of Monserrat Caballero, Miriam Cano, Rosina del Villar Casas, Araceli Geraldo, Andrea González, Gerardo López, Elí Topete, Juan Manuel Molina, Rodrigo Anibal Otañez, Ramón Vásquez, Fausto Gallardo, María Luisa Villalobos, Eva Rodríguez, Julio César Vásquez Castillo and Trinidad Vaca.
In contrast, PAN MEPs Loreto Quintero and Eva María Vásquez voted; Efrén Moreno de Transformemos, and Juan Meléndez, Víctor Navarro and Carmen Hernández de Morena.
They abstained from voting Claudia Agatón del PT, the independent Miguel Bujanda and Víctor Morán, from Morena.
