Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has signed into law a controversial electrical energy bill that favours government-owned generating plants that largely run on fossil fuels.
The bill has drawn complaints from private business groups and foreign investors, some of whom backed cleaner gas and renewable power plants in Mexico.
But Lopez Obrador says the move will make the country more energy independent, although activists have decried the bill, saying it does not make environmental and economic sense.

Al Jazeera’s John Holman reports from Mexico City, Mexico.
