Mexico Supreme Court orders the INE not to postpone Revocation of Mandate

MEXICO, (December 23, 2021).- During the night of last Wednesday, the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) put a brake on the agreement of the National Electoral Institute (INE) in which they postponed the consultation of Revocation of Mandate.

On the contrary, the Recess Commission of the Court admitted the Constitutional controversy presented by the Representatives Chamber for processing, for which it ordered the popular consultation to be carried out within the previously established times.

Stop the INE agreement: SCJN

Precisely, in relation to popular law, the Court’s Recess Commission made up of ministers Yasmín Esquivel Mossa and Margarita Ríos-Farjat admitted to processing the controversy promoted by the legislators against the INE agreement since in their resolution they specified that they did not the right of citizens to decide whether or not to revoke the mandate of the President can be put at risk.

The now legal conflict for the Revocation adds two challenges in the SCJN, in addition to the controversy promoted by the electoral body in which it demanded a budget reduction by Congress for 2022 for more than four billion pesos.

Now that the Court did not grant the suspension requested by the Electoral Institute, counselor Claudia Zavala through her twitter account have indicated that they will have to make adjustments to their budget to raise the money necessary for said consultation, so in any case, its implementation will be postponed until the required money is available.

What does the Revocation of Mandate mean?

The Mandate Revocation Law is the mechanism with which the citizens will be consulted during the first three years of government, if they are satisfied with the performance of their leaders, however, and at least for this first time the INE meets many complications for the realization, mainly a considerable cut in their finances precisely the year that would have to take place.

This has caused a shower of statements between the president, the deputies and the electoral body, some of which were even described as “Vulgar and devious” by the president counselor, Lorenzo Córdova, who assures that knowing how expensive it is to carry out the consultation they pretend and attack the institute.
