The president of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), Óscar Hassenteufel argued that this state body does not issue criteria on the problems that revolve around the Population and Housing Census, where one of the most problematic points revolves around the date of the execution of the survey. Nevertheless, He pointed out that it is important to have the results for the entity he directs.

In statements to Red Uno, the executive stated that the census is important and there is some concern because it is an unresolved conflict, but beyond that the issue It has an impact on the electoral scenario, because the survey will help plan the future of the country on the subject of redefinition of constituenciesso the results are expected.

“We hope that through of dialogue, which is the best instrument, can be sort out in the upcoming weeks,” added the executive without going into more detail.

The one who delved into the subject was the former Secretary of Autonomies of the Santa Cruz Mayor’s Office, José Luis Santistevan, when stating that LLaw of Citizen Groups 1096 establishes primary elections that must begin their preparation 8 months before the electoral calendarl (presidential) that governs from six months before the vote, which would be in October 2025, which includes 45 days for a second round.

“In synthesis the electoral stage begins 14 months before October 2025. That was the reason why they put June 2024 (as the probable date of the census). a single delay carried out by the INE, there is no longer a census. Even if the census is carried out in June 2024, the results will come out after that the new president swears in for the 2025/2030 period,” Santistevan remarked in his analysis.

Once I swear the new president enters the electoral calendar of the subnational process, that they must swear on May 3, 2026, according to the calculations presented by the lawyer.

“We are facing an electoral panorama that begins with the primaries in August 2024 and ends in May 2026 with the choice of mayors and governors,” he summarized.

On the other hand, at the end of 2021, from the opposition it was put on the debate stage the need to have a new electoral register, to which Hassenteufel referred that before addressing such an issue, it would have to be done only after the census.
