The country’s senators must assess the damage that may be caused by approving the Plan B of the electoral reform, since it threatens electoral political rights of the citizens, said the Employers Confederation of the Mexican Republic (Coparmex).
Therefore, he made a “strong call” to the Senate to consider the implications and risks indicated by the INE General Councilas well as to the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation so that after reviewing the actions of unconstitutionality of Plan B, it is declared that the reforms do not adhere to what is established by the Great Charter.
“Before the legislative process of the decrees that modify different laws on electoral matters is resumed, we make a last and energetic call to the Senate to responsibly address the implications that, as indicated by the General Council of the National Electoral Institute (INE) ), will have these reforms in the holding of free elections,” Coparmex said in a statement.
He added that it will be the citizens “more harmed with Plan B”, because the possibility of processing or replacing their Voter Credential is put at risk, the structure of INE Modules would be dismantled, nearly 2,000 INE officials who organize the elections and train citizens to install the polling stations and count the votes, it would affect the reliability of the Preliminary Electoral Results Program, and many other actions that would be irreparable damage to citizen rights”.
Coparmex added that Mexico does not require new electoral legislation and asked “not to infringe on the political-electoral rights won by citizens.”
