MEXICO CITY — Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto is entering a critical stage of his term, analysts say, as his administration faces growing resistance to its wide-ranging, fast-track push to remake the country’s institutions.
Peña Nieto is under fire from Mexico’s left for taking on powerful teachers unions and for a proposal to open the state oil monopoly to private investment. On the right, opposition is building to his plan for tax increases on the wealthy, corporations and a broad share of the middle class.
More moves are still to come, aimed at breaking up telephone and broadcast monopolies and overhauling the criminal justice system, election rules and other targets, all stacked on the president’s lengthy, urgent to-do list.
