INE asks AMLO not to put the 2021 election at risk

Mexico City /

The National Electoral Institute (INE) warned that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador “is putting the legality of the electoral process at risk” and asked him to commit to acting as a statesman and not as a “party leader” so that he stops affecting equity and neutrality, by insulting their political adversaries in the pre-campaign period,

The INE Complaints and Complaints Commission warned that the President of the Republic “made illicit statements, abandoned the neutrality to which he is obliged to criticize the formation of the Va por México alliance, but refrained from talking about the alliance headed by Morena and there he maintained neutrality. “

This was determined by the electoral advisers when granting precautionary measures and accepting the preventive protection requested by the PRD, to warn the President of his intervention in the electoral process with his systematic and repeated remarks in his morning press conferences. The precautionary measures are also “so that public officials are prudent and do not speak for or against electoral coalitions and alliances.”

The three councilors that make up the Complaints Commission issued inhibitory measures to set the limits to what public officials can or cannot say, starting with the President of the Republic.

Councilor Ciro Murayama assured that the President’s statements against the alliance of the PAN, PRI and PRD are systematic and could put the legality of the contest at risk and be replicated by other leaders, as has already happened with the head of government, Claudia Sheinbaum.

Likewise, the councilors told President López Obrador that “it is not time to be a candidate because that has already happened,” and, therefore, he must act with high sights as he did on December 29 when he refrained from commenting on the electoral coalition between Morena and the Labor and Green Ecologist parties.
