NotesEdit

  1. ^ Ana Lilia Herrera Anzaldo, the original choice, left the Senate to become the Secretary of Education of the State of Mexico.
  2. ^ The Labor Party declined to name one of its senators, as it disagreed with the creation of the list of senatorial designees. Romero Hicks of the PAN was selected instead.
  3. ^ Replaced Pablo Escudero Morales after he was designated President of the Senate.
