The Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation granted a suspension to the Chamber of Deputies so that the INE does not postpone the process of revocation of mandate.

He also specified that in no case do political rights admit restriction or suspension in a general way through a decree or act, as the INE did on December 17, arguing lack of resources for the realization of the exercise.
With this decision, the country’s highest court ordered the INE to continue the process of revocation of mandate with the allocated budget, which is 1,503 million pesos, so “it must adjust to that budgetary margin in the development of all stages of the aforementioned revocation process.”
