Morena announced on Thursday that it decided to postpone its state congresses scheduled for this weekend, on August 13 and 14, because the results of its election of congressmen are not yet announced. This last process was carried out on July 30 and 31.
The National Elections Commission said in a statement that the new dates will be notified shortly.
Message to militancy:
The State Congresses scheduled for August 13 and 14 will be postponed, because the results of the district elections have yet to be published.
We will inform you as soon as possible of the new dates. https://t.co/Lj8LEhh3ZV pic.twitter.com/cArR4lZr2b

For this weekend, Morena had planned that in its state congresses new party leaders would be elected in the entities. Now, that process will have to wait.
The lack of results of the internal elections of July 30 and 31 – in which morena’s militancy voted to elect 3,000 congressmen – is due to the number of challenges to the elections.
Last Friday, Political Animal he published that up to that point there were 320 and that the figure could even double.
Some of the practices denounced by militants were the possible purchase and coercion of the vote, as well as the carrying of voters.
Morena’s national leadership, headed by Mario Delgado, acknowledged that some anomalies had been recorded, but maintained that they only occurred in about 19 of more than 500 polling stations.
Some militants have even accused that they were excluded from the lists of candidates, a claim to which Delgado has responded that it is only promoted by people who want to affect the party.
