reforms to the Federal Law on Radio and television that would allow for diversity in the

In June 2007 the Mexican Supreme court stated that federal Law on Radio and TV, passed in March
2006 violates the constitution and principles of equity, competition and democratisation of the
broadcasting spectrum of the country.
