Mexico Seeks Political Parity for Indigenous

Mexico has redrawn its congressional districts to increase the number of Indian lawmakers.

Mexico’s indigenous have long been under-represented politically and have suffered socially and economically as a result.

According to the Fox Administration there will be 28 new districts with an Indian majority when the July 2 elections take place.

There are currently only three Indian federal congressional representatives in the 500-seat lower house and no Indian senators.
