translated from Spanish: Court seeks to pass rules against over-representation in Congress

The Electoral Tribunal of the Judiciary of the Federation issued the project that seeks to approve the CRITERIA of the INE in the allocation of proportional representation decisions to avoid overrepresentation in Congress.
“Because it is in the public interest, the SUP-RAP-68/2021 project is made available to the public” published the Tribunal on the proposal of Judge Felipe Fuentes Barrera, which will be discussed this April 14.
This, after Morena, the PAN and the Solidarity Encounter Party (PES) challenged the criteria by arguing their temporality and violating the figure of “effective affiliation, the principle of self-determination and organization of political parties”.

The three parties also argue that these criteria were issued three days after the registration of nominations for federal meps by the principles of relative majority and proportional representation, and less than three months after polling day.
When it issued these criteria, the INE assured that what is sought to prevent is that, within coalitions, some members will win over party membership, arguing that they are only complying with the law, which states that no party should have more than 8% overrepresentation.
For his part, Morena accused the electoral advisers Lorenzo Córdova and Ciro Murayama of seeking to prevent, at all costs, the party from being a majority in the Chamber of Deputies the next Legislature.
Mario Delgado, national president of Morena, noted that “in a dark and shameful manoeuvre, some INE advisors related to the PRIAN intend, less than three months after the election, to change the rules of assignment of the plurinomine members to affect our movement, and that we do not obtain a majority.
