A historic day happened in the Mexican Supreme Court on Monday as a woman was elected the court's first Chief Justice, in a decision welcome by opposition groups in the country. This is a representational image. Tingey Injury Law Firm/Unsplash.

Mexican Supreme Court justice, Arturo Zaldivar, stepped down from his position Tuesday after 14 years of service, noting it was time for "transformation of a fairer and more egalitarian Mexico."

Justice Zaldivar shared his resignation announcement on X, formerly known as Twitter, and wrote he presented his resignation from the position of the minister of the Supreme Court of Justice to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

"Today I have presented to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador my resignation from the position of Minister of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation, so that, if he accepts it, it may be submitted to the Senate of the Republic for approval," he wrote in Spanish, translated by Google.

He went on to share that his court cycle has ended, adding that during these 14 years of service, he "promoted the most avant-garde criteria that constituted the new constitutional paradigm in the defense of the human rights of all people."

"It is now time to continue serving my country in consolidating the transformation of a fairer and more egalitarian Mexico, in which those who have the least and need it most are a priority," he added. "The Mexico we dream of is possible. Let's continue advancing in its construction. Until dignity and equality become customary!"

Aside from this post, Zaldivar also shared a separate post where he noted "another Mexico is possible," saying that country will leave "differences behind and face in unity the adversities and complex problems that afflict us."

"But above all, an egalitarian Mexico, without discrimination in which young people can fulfill their desires. For that Mexico I continue working."

He attached a link with the post that directs toward an article in which he mentioned the recent devastation that took place after Hurricane Otis in Acapulco and other areas of Guerrero. Zalvidar pointed out that, as usual, the most affected people were the vulnerable citizens of the country, who have now lost everything.

He had previously come under fire for calling himself a "Swiftie" -- a name that Taylor Swift fans call themselves.
