the elected president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, called on all Mexicans to take part in the public consultation for the future of it New Mexico City International Airport (NAICM) and the advantages and disadvantages of following the construction of the air terminal in the Lake of Texcoco, State of Mexico.

"It is a matter for all Mexicans because it has to do with the National budget and the money is from all, native farmers from all regions of the country, it is the money and then we all have to participate. "
He explained that there are two ways: continue building the new air terminal in the Lake of Texcoco or stop that work, cancel it and make two clues in the Saint Lucia military airport, with a new terminal, which connects it to the current airport.
One of the advantages of building the new air terminal in the Lake of Texcoco, López Obrador He states that the works are already under consideration, 60 billion pesos have already been exercised and there is already an engagement for 100 billion pesos.
