In compliance with a ruling of the Electoral Court to ensure gender parity in Morena’s internal election, the GENERAL Council of the INE considers approving that the presidency and the general secretariat of the party are occupied by men and women, or vice versa.
«To ensure the principle of gender parity in the election of the persons holding the Presidency and General Secretariat of the National Executive Committee, the person who is elected to the General Secretariat will be gender-different from the one who, according to the outcome of the open public survey, is elected to the Presidency,» proposes the project to be voted on tonight.
«That is, if, as a result of the open public survey, a woman obtains the highest percentage of preferences to hold the Presidency, the person in the General Secretariat will be the man who has obtained the highest percentage of preferences. Similarly, if, as a result of the open public survey, a man obtains the highest percentage of preferences to hold the Presidency, the person in the General Secretariat will be the woman who has obtained the highest percentage of preferences.»
The project maintains that, of the 71 nominations approved for both positions, in the end they will only move on to the open survey six and six, with gender equality, i.e. three men and three women for the presidency, and three men and three women for the general secretariat.
«To ensure that women and militant men participate on an equal footing in the public recognition survey, the results of which will result in a maximum of six voting options for each office for conducting the open public survey, lists of nominations for the Presidency and the General Secretariat should be integrated equally into the number of women and men. That is, three candidates and three candidates for the Presidency and three candidates and three candidates for the General Secretariat should be made up of three candidates.
«In the event that there are not enough people of a gender to make up the lists in a peerly manner for the conduct of the open public survey, all persons of that underrepresented gender will be included in the list of applications, regardless of the results of the recognition survey,» he proposes.
The list of 71 nominations could increase, as the Electoral Court ordered the INE to review the cases of 33 morenists who were excluded for not complying with formalities and were therefore not considered militants.
