Javier Laynez Potisek, minister of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN), admitted for processing a constitutional controversy filed by the National Electoral Institute (INE) against the so-called electoral ‘Plan B’.

In addition, the suspension requested by INE against the decree that reforms, adds and repeals provisions of the General Law of Electoral Institutions and Procedures, of the General Law of Political Parties, of the Organic Law of the Federal Judiciary, and that issues a new General Law of Electoral Challenges.

Said suspension was granted because the Decree not only contains norms of a general nature, but also concrete acts of application, on which the suspension is generally granted.

Furthermore, he argued, in this case there are possible violations to the political-electoral rights of the citizens.

The Supreme Court will analyze the issue in depth and the ministers will vote on the constitutionality of ‘Plan B‘.

INE counselor Ciro Murayama celebrated the suspension against ‘Plan B’ and assured that the Supreme Court “reaffirms itself as that defender and final guarantor of the constitutional order“.
