Meanwhile, the INE continues the thorough review of each of the citizen support received through a app and those collected through physical formats, that is, in paper formats filled “by hand”.

This last modality will only apply to 204 municipalities with the highest marginality in the country; However, the Superior Chamber of the Electoral Tribunal of the Federal Judicial Power (TEPJF) agreed with the party Brunette who disagreed with the institute’s decision and approved the use of the physical formats in all the country.

Faced with this situation that forces the institute to review and, where appropriate, validate the more than 2.7 million formats, the event was held from March 27 to April 10, 2022. In addition, the date of the respective call must be adjusted.

Lorenzo Cordova, President Counselor of the INE, warned in the General Council session held on October 20, risks that they ran from accepting the use of paper formats throughout the country, recalling that in 2000 a request for citizen consultation was submitted that yielded more than 400,000 apocryphal propss in that mode.

“A popular consultation request was also submitted by several citizens, including a famous telenovela filmmaker, Epigmenio Ibarra, on paper, and what did that exercise show us? 45 days to the INE, and that one out of every five signatures was false, “he explained.
