Mexico City legislators from opposition party Morena have appealed a ruling that finances a contract between the capital and El Sarape waste-to-energy facility.
The appeal was filed with an administrative judge against the city's legislative assembly commissions that approved the contract last month for the construction and operation of the plant.
The appeal is based on the argument that the city's financing of the plant violates the rights of Mexico City residents by posing risks to their health, state-owned news agency Notimex reports.
Critics of the project claim it saddles the city with a debt of 109bn pesos (US$5.75bn) over 30 years, while local authorities argue that the figure represents the service fees the government will pay for the treatment of its solid waste, and that the funds will come from reallocating some of the local government's current expenses.
