Three days after the deadline for the signature collection of citizens to request the popular consultation of Revocation of Mandate, promoted by the president Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the National Electoral Institute (INE) updated their counting figures.

It should be remembered that by law, the INE requires a formal request from the 3% of the nominal list of voters; that is, little more than 2.7 million signatures of request, which, in addition, must correspond to at least 17 states.

According to report of this Tuesday, the INE has received a total of 10 million 886 thousand 932 rubrics, of which, only one million 308 thousand 375 have been verified on the nominal list; that is, it has already been possible to obtain the 47.4% of the 2 million 758 thousand 227 that are needed. The above means that one million 449 thousand 852 remain to be achieved.

Of those approved, one million 109 thousand 970 are through the Mobile App and 198 thousand 405 in Physical format. Between the two they have been detected 306 thousand 153 signatures with inconsistencies.

About it, a few days ago Alejandro Andrade, coordinator of Technological Processes of the INE, told the portal Expansion that there are cases in which a citizen grants more than one signature, by death or being a homonym, but they have also been detected photographs of an object, a chair or a table, and there is even a photograph of a dog.

However, the institute clarified that until next February 3rd, the deadline for completing this process, 7 million 617 thousand 890 supports remain to be analyzed, although it is established in the regulations approved by the General Council that if before reaching 3.5% of valid records, the review may be concluded, since it would no longer be necessary to review all the signatures.

On the other hand, this December 27, the Recess Commission of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) granted a second suspension against the agreement issued by the INE that intended postpone consultation of revocation of mandate arguing budget deficiencies.

When admitting for processing a constitutional controversy presented by the Legal Counsel of the Presidency of the Republic, Ministers Margarita Ríos-Farjat and Yasmín Esquivel Mossa granted the suspension requested by the Federal Executive Power.

The constitutional controversy to challenge the determination adopted by the General Council of the INE was endorsed by six votes to five.

“The suspension requested by the Federal Executive Power is granted, for the purposes specified in the final part of this provision. The suspension measure will take effect immediately and without the need to grant any guarantee “

This suspension granted by the Recess Commission of the Court is in addition to the one previously granted to the Chamber of Deputies in another constitutional controversy, in addition to which is pending resolution in the Electoral Tribunal of the Judicial Power of the Federation (TEPJF) an appeal filed by Morena.

The Recess Commission also resolved that once the first session of the Plenary of the Court of 2022 begins, the case file will be transferred to the Presidency so that it can define whether it is sent to a Chamber or to the Plenary of the Highest Court.

In addition, the Chamber of Deputies and the Chamber of Senators were notified of the content of the constitutional controversy, as interested third parties.
