This Saturday, the election campaigns of the six presidential candidates for the elections on October 27 begin. They will have time to «bomb» with their proposals and advertising spots in the media until Friday, October 25. As set out in article 64a of the National Electoral Code, the election campaign «starts 50 days before the date of the general election and ends 48 hours before the start of the comic, «that is, it will end next Friday, October 25 at 8.
The election campaign is defined as «the set of activities carried out by political groups, their candidates or third parties, through acts of mobilization, dissemination, publicity, opinion and communication consultation, presentation of plans and projects, discussions in order to capture the political will of the electorate, which must be developed in a climate of democratic tolerance.» The standard clarifies: «Academic activities, conferences and symposia will not be considered as integral parts of the election campaign.» The various parties and alliances competing for the presidency shall nominate two economic-financial leaders to take over the numbers in order to present the campaign revenue and expenditure report after the election process has been completed.
