Mexico City- After years of not doing so and of recriminating some decisions, magistrates and electoral advisers met to settle differences and discuss pending issues.

“(The meeting was) to discuss various aspects of the electoral agenda, inter-institutional coordination and the strengthening of democracy,” summarized the president of the INE, Lorenzo Córdova.

His counterpart in the Electoral Court, Reyes Rodríguez, assured that both institutions are fundamental for the strengthening of democracy in Mexico, so it is necessary to review the common agenda and electoral commitments in 2022.

In the last year, especially during the presidency of José Luis Vargas, the councilors had reproached several decisions of the magistrates, among them those that have to do with putting a stop to the activism of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador or endorsing new parties.

As well as returning projects on candidacies for governors, such as those of Michoacán and Guerrero, or federal deputies.

“It is a sentence of such a level of carelessness, excuse me, that it orders us to raise a candidate who had already been elected deputy for this legislature by the principle of relative majority and even that was not reviewed by the magistrates. They did their job so carelessly. “, claimed the counselor Ciro Murayama on August 31, after the Court decided to remove a male candidate so that the seat would go to a woman.
