"She was without a doubt a woman of her time and who transcended her time, the protagonist of the changes and decisions that impacted the world," she said.

Later, he asked the senators to observe a minute of silence in memory of the monarch.

For the PT, Senator Cora Cecilia Pinedo Alonso emphasized that the monarch was a woman who in the last century and in this one, meant an icon in political, social, and international life, an icon for women to have recognition and space.

"We must strengthen our ties of friendship with all the peoples of the earth and with the English people at this time," said the senator of the Plural Group, Germán Martínez Cázares, who joined the condolences with the British people.


Queen Elizabeth II was a woman who raised the morale and spirits of her compatriots at a difficult time, said Senator Rogelio Israel Zamora Guzmán (PVEM). He pointed out that the monarch is a woman who will live in the memory of many people.

 

"Without a doubt, there are human beings in life who leave a mark forever and without a doubt, Queen Elizabeth leaves a mark and leaves a lot of teaching," Senator Antonio García Conejo (PRD) pointed out, expressing his condolences.
