For his part, the coordinator of the bench of federal deputies of Morena, Ignacio Mier Velazco, released a 2013 document in which Córdova, then counselor of the Federal Electoral Institute (IFE), questioned the electoral reforms of that year.
The criticism was made in the context in which legislators sought a single electoral body (which led to a national body and not just a federal one), while due to pressure from the Institutional Revolutionary (PRI) it was possible to maintain state bodies, under the figure of Public Electoral Organizations (OPL).
For this reason, Córdova and other signatories of the pronouncement questioned the lack of clarity in the attributions and duplication of functions and structures that were outlined in the 2014 reform.
According to Mier, president of the Political Coordination Board of the Chamber of Deputies, Córdova Vianello warned then that “the lack of clarity in the distribution of powers would create duplication of redundant structures or procedures between the INE and local bodies, increasing the cost of electoral processes”.
The deputy of Morena accused that his change of opinion is due to money.
