MEXICO CITY – Mexico’s president-elect, leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, on Wednesday sketched out his legislative priorities for the next government, including measures to end presidential immunity and curb compensation for high-earning public sector officials.

Lopez Obrador, who takes office on Dec. 1, also reaffirmed that his own presidential salary would be slashed and that privileges and perks for top officials would be scaled back.

“Everything to do with the republican austerity plan and fighting corruption will have priority from the first day of the new Congress,” he said after a meeting with incoming lawmakers from his National Regeneration Movement (MORENA) party.
