No later than next Tuesday, the National Electoral Institute (INE) plans to validate the 2 million 758 thousand 227 signatures required by the Constitution to convene the first consultation of Revocation of Mandate of the President of the Republic.
We recommend: AMLO will present to the INE austerity plan for Mandate Revocation Consultation
Until now, it has given its preliminary approval to 2 million 14 thousand 349 citizen requests, 73% of what is required, so it would only be necessary to validate 744 thousand 878 to comply with the requirement.
The second requirement that is demanded has already been fulfilled, since 3% of support comes from at least 17 of the 32 states.
“They are Tabasco, Mexico City, Campeche, Aguascalientes, San Luis Potosí, Tlaxcala, Hidalgo, Zacatecas, Baja California Sur, Quintana Roo, Colima, Morelos, Tamaulipas, Nayarit, Guerrero, Chihuahua and Oaxaca, are the 17 entities. Our estimate is that by next Monday, Tuesday, next week, that is, one more week we will already be reaching the goal, exceeding the goal of 2 million 758 thousand “, declared René Miranda, director of the Federal Register Electors (RFE)
René Miranda clarified that, although the RFE preliminarily validates the almost 2.8 million signatures required by law, the formal call for the Mandate Revocation consultation can only be issued once one more procedure has been completed.
On January 19, a sample of addresses of those who gave their signature will be randomly chosen to request the revocation query.
INE officials will go to those addresses so that citizens can personally confirm that they did indeed give their support and that the signature belongs to each one of them.
“A statistical sample will be made on the universes that are processed and home visits on that sample, that is an activity that we are projecting that will take us about 10 days, in our guidelines it is that by January 19, that there is not so much time left, we will have to do that sample and from there we will have to make the visits, “the official continued.
According to the guidelines approved by the INE, having verified 3.5% of the supporting signatures of the nominal voters list, they could stop the signature review.
Currently 480 people work in two shifts to achieve maximum progress.
They have detected just over 523 thousand signatures with inconsistencies to date.
