Every year, summertime is a topic of conversation. In Mexico, the topic is now finally off the table.

MEXICO CITY – After years of debate over the point of the time change, Mexico has abolished daylight saving time. The Senate of the Latin American country decided on Wednesday morning (local time). Next Sunday, the clocks in Mexico will be changed to winter time for the last time.

In the future, only the “time of God” will apply, said President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, alluding to a colloquial term for normal time. Daylight saving time was introduced in Mexico in 1996 to save energy.

As in Germany, there have always been debates in Mexico about the advantages and disadvantages of daylight saving time. The abolition made sense for health reasons, the Senate said. Senator Félix Salgado of the governing Morena party said there had also been no significant energy saving effect in the past 26 years.

Winter time will apply again in Germany from next Sunday. Clocks are turned back from 3:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. According to a survey, almost every third person in Germany has had physical or psychological problems after a time change. dpa
