The Political Coordination Board (Jucopo) of the Chamber of Deputies received the new proposal from the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) to integrate the Technical Evaluation Committee of aspiring directors of the National Electoral Institute (INE).
This is the political scientist and academic from the Autonomous Metropolitan University (UAM) Araceli Mondragón González, who replaces María del Socorro Puga, questioned for her inexperience in electoral issues and only having a certification in laughter yoga.
In addition to this, the governing body of San Lázaro established that the former director of the Center for Economic Research and Teaching (CIDE) Sergio López Ayllón, proposed by the National Institute of Transparency, Access to Information and Protection of Personal Data (INAI), does not meet the characteristics to participate in the committee, among which are impartiality, independence and objectivity.
This is because the member of the advisory council of Mexicans Against Corruption, whose founding director is businessman Claudio X. González, promoted the opposition march on November 13 and has issued opinions in favor of the INE.

let’s wait Until the review is over and next Monday afternoon, it will be possible to say in strict adherence to the law, what is appropriate, pointed out Mier, also coordinator of the Morena deputies.
Pérez Valdez pointed out, however, that the Chamber is constitutionally obliged to abide by the court’s resolution, but to determine its scope and make determinations in this regard, the study will be carried out. He stressed that procedural failures were detected by the judicial authority.
The PRD member ruled out that because of the court’s ruling, the election of the four INE directors will be delayed, since the order of the magistrates left the dates of the process intact.
Mier said that in order to approve the new call to participate in the definition of the electoral advisers, it will not be necessary to call a special session in San Lázaro, since this can be done in February when the regular session begins.
Jucopo agreed to make a position on
the undue meddling of the upper room against San Lázaro.
