MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s Senate overwhelmingly approved a new member of the Supreme Court on Thursday, giving President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador a new ally on the 11-member panel.

Rios-Farjat will serve a 15-year term and was formally sworn in shortly after winning 94 votes in the Senate out of 122 cast.
