Faced with the issue, the Secretary of the Interior of Mexico, Adán Augusto López, stressed the importance of listening to the opinion of Mexicans and that this was not a simple consultation.

“We are going to listen to the opinion of the people on matters of public security, as the president has rightly mentioned, it is not really a consultation, but rather an exercise in social participation,” assured López.

under that premise members of the president’s opposition warn that it is illegal and a distraction from the poor results of the López Obrador government on safety matter.

“We already know the result, an immense majority of an immense minority that will go to vote in ballot boxes installed by Morena and the government will say what AMLO wants: that the soldiers stay in the streets and that the National Guard be part of SEDENA” said the former head of the National Electoral Institute, Luis Carlos Ugalde.
