Minister Norma Lucía Piña Hernández admitted for processing the constitutional controversies presented by the National Electoral Institute (INE) and the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH), in which they are accused of invading their legal spheres, after the latter body Autonomous expressed his opinion in favor of the electoral reform.
However, the highest court denied the suspension of the claimed acts requested by both parties.
The first controversy is 235/2022, filed by the CNDH to challenge the statement issued by the INE on October 30, where it states that the commission has
an express constitutional prohibition to intervene in issues of an electoral nature.

being inaccurate that the Political Constitution of the United Mexican States so provides.

In response to this controversy, the INE also filed its own, which was registered under number 239/2022, in which it challenges the CNDH’s general recommendation 46/2022, where it takes a position in favor of electoral reform, stating that
recommends the transformation of the people to democracy.
In this case, the electoral body sued the SCJN that the CNDH remove the general recommendation and the pronouncements from its website, stating that
insults the electoral function of the INE, violates its autonomy with a clear intention to discredit and discredit it, and promotes electoral reforms that are intended to reduce it and cause distrust among citizens.
It also requests that the Court prohibit the CNDH from issuing any other pronouncement on electoral matters.
that violates the constitutional order and invades the powers of the INE.
Since both parties’ requests for suspension were rejected, none of their statements will be withdrawn until the plenary session of the SCJN resolves both constitutional controversies.
