STENOGRAPHIC VERSION OF THE SPEECH BY THE PRESIDENT COUNSELOR OF THE NATIONAL ELECTORAL INSTITUTE (INE), LORENZO CÓRDOVA VIANELLO, AT THE SIGNING OF THE FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT FOR COLLABORATION WITH RED MÉXICO

Thank you very a lot, have an excellent afternoon, all of you.

I thank and rejoice the presence on this, the home of democracy, of our pals from the Mexico Network, Master Jorge César Gómez, President of the Board of Directors of the Network.

To the permission of Martha Del Carmen Silva, Vice President of the identical Network.

To Dr. Gabriel Torres, our pricey and good pal, now right here, receiving him in his function as President of the Ibero-American Educational and Cultural Television Society.

And, after all, to the trainer Juan Aguilera, Treasurer of the Network itself.

I additionally greet and thank the presence of my colleagues, Counselor Claudia Zavala; Mr. Edmundo Jacobo, Executive Secretary; and trainer Roberto Heycher Cardiel, Executive Director of Electoral Training and Civic Education.

It is a incontrovertible fact that our nation suffers from a major deficit by way of citizenship. The attitudes and practices of some contenders, of some political actors remind us of this each time we’ve got an electoral course of or some train of citizen participation.

Certainly, we’ve got developed a really strong institutional scaffolding for the recreation of democracy, which has contributed to governability and public peace for greater than three a long time; Without a doubt, it may be improved, however we should not overlook that this, our electoral system, regardless of its disqualifications and the disqualifications and assaults that it receives each day, continues to be a world level of reference on this matter.

This scaffolding has been nourished by innumerable technical procedures, by a posh, even baroque, if you’ll, electoral regulation, however which has served to get rid of the areas for arbitrariness based mostly on the incessant incorporation of technological improvements to our duties and the decided impulse to numerous affirmative actions which have made public life in Mexico equal and more and more inclusive.

However, the development of our procedures and the verifiable democratic achievements achieved on this interval, such because the eradication of fraud, the vigorous and altering pluralism, the index, an unprecedented price of alternation that within the final seven years reaches 68 p.c; that’s, the likelihood {that a} social gathering that wins an electoral course of and wins the subsequent spherical is barely one in three possibilities, in addition to the verifiable equity within the contests, haven’t been in a position to eradicate distrust in public establishments, neither is the presence of fraudulent conduct by those that compete for public energy.

It is absurd that each time an elective train of citizen participation is carried out, despite the fact that the political events, governors and contenders know very properly that the INE has arrange a system for monitoring public life and a monetary requirement circuit that makes it doable to clear the cash invested in politics, time and time once more, they attempt to deceive the electoral authority and systematically violate the principles of the democratic recreation regardless of the imposition of million-dollar fines.

We have the newest instance within the current Mandate Revocation course of, since, as I’ve talked about, though the development of the electoral framework eradicated the fraud of the elections, and that disastrous apply that the lifeless voted, now, it seems that The lifeless now not vote because of the electoral system we’ve got, however they do seem selling citizen participation mechanisms.

That is what I imply by the citizenship deficit, the recurring intention to violate the principles and attempt to deceive the authorities and society as a complete.

Let me put it this fashion: our nation has created sufficient procedures for the equity of democratic competitors, however not sufficient mechanisms have been created to eradicate the dishonest subculture and fraudulent conduct of those that take part in politics.

For this motive, I preserve that our nation urgently wants extra residents dedicated to the values, ideas and practices of democracy, each in authorities our bodies, in addition to in political illustration our bodies, in events, and on the identical time, a extra vigilant and participatory of society to boost the context of demand of those that have an effect on the general public lifetime of our nation.

Hence the significance of not giving up in selling and strengthening civic tradition and the collaboration settlement that we signed right this moment between the National Electoral Institute and the Network of Educational and Cultural Radio and Television Broadcasters of Mexico, supposes .

This settlement is another instance that for the INE, elevating civic tradition is a everlasting trigger that we don’t abandon, neither because of inadequate assets, nor as a result of we’re 24 days away from the primary Mandate Revocation train in our historical past, and some weeks that the electoral campaigns start in six federal entities during which there can be extraordinary native elections subsequent June.

I’m satisfied that with the strategic alliance that we formalize with this settlement, which we reiterate with this settlement, we won’t solely be capable to generate synergies for the dissemination of related content material, segmented by inhabitants teams or sectors, and perform joint actions that contribute to the event of a complete citizenship , however slightly, given the funds cuts to which each the INE and the member our bodies of the Mexico Network have been subjected, the signal of the occasions, this Agreement will favor the achievement of our respective institutional aims based mostly on the synergy of efforts and of actions.

Allow me to repeat, for many who solely see the nation divided into two camps between pals and enemies, on the INE and at Red México we wish to increase the standard of citizenship in our nation and contribute to the dissemination of the values ​​and ideas of democracy, We wish to enhance the knowledgeable participation of residents in public affairs and we are going to work collectively to disseminate these points that contribute to elevating democratic tradition with related content material, aimed toward totally different audiences, social teams and areas, making goal, verified data prevail. , verifiable and, subsequently, preventing the, let’s put it that manner, the epidemic of post-truth, misinformation and lies that right this moment, sadly, afflicts our public dialogue.

In this sense, in step with the outcomes of the demographic workouts, on the INE we’re satisfied that radio and tv proceed to play a privileged function in exercising the proper to data and for the enough recreation of political-electoral contests. and on this they’re basic, they play a basic, basic function, the general public media.

This, even though the massification of the Internet and the rising amenities for using cell telephones are step by step altering the instruments that the inhabitants makes use of to seek out out about public affairs.

For us, digital and radio media make up the important ecosystem for constructing citizenship and public dialog within the data age.

Recognition that leads us to underline the significance of the contents within the communication and, consequently, of the actions that the INE and the Mexico Network will perform with a plural and democratic dedication based mostly on this Agreement.

For this motive, on behalf of the advisors of the National Electoral Institute, I thank the willingness of all of the organizations that make up the Mexico Network to signal this Agreement.

I’m assured that this strategic alliance that we’re ratifying right this moment could have a long-term horizon, as we all know that the method of constructing citizenship all the time implies conceiving medium- and long-term tasks and applications.

With regard to the significance of advancing within the development of citizenship and of contributing to democratic coexistence, let me conclude by calling on the political actors in order that, throughout the framework of the present strategy of Revocation of

Mandate, respect the legislation, particularly those that are systematically violating the relevant guidelines of the sport.

The systematic violation of the principles that’s going down within the propaganda associated to the Revocation of the Mandate, leads us to do not forget that the electoral competitors who violates the legislation erodes the bases of democratic coexistence, violates the political association on which the democracy, and, consequently, it not solely cheats, it commits fraud in opposition to the legal guidelines and drives voters away from the polls.

At the INE, we are not looking for polarization and intolerance to proceed to unfold all through the nation, nor to those that, via tips and lies, intend to deceive the inhabitants and the authorities.

A plural, various and unequal nation, comparable to ours, sadly, by way of inequality, must strengthen the mechanisms of inclusion and loyalty with democratic coexistence and which means with the principles of the sport that help this way, not solely political regime, of political coexistence, but additionally of social coexistence.

That is what civic tradition and the development of its citizenship are for, that’s what they’re for. If as a nation we don’t guess on the development of citizenship, the exacerbation of prevailing variations, polarization and intolerance can flip, as historical past tragically teaches us on repeated events, into violence, as has occurred in current unlucky occasions .

And we are not looking for that, neither within the face of the revocation of the mandate, nor within the elections of June 2022, a lot much less within the nice elections, the macro elections that would be the largest and, subsequently, most advanced in historical past. , which would be the 2024 elections.

At the INE we work every single day in order that democracy turns into a behavior. So that Mexican women and men see others, majorities and minorities, in addition to those that assume otherwise, not as enemies or traitors.

Those are the discourses that nourish your complete logic of authoritarianism, however as elements of a complete, as inhabitants with our professional variations, of a typical residence, of our nation, which finds in its pluralism and variety the true supply of its wealth.

He concluded by summoning as soon as once more and thanking the presence of, by the way in which, my colleague, the President of the Committee on Political Prerogatives and Parties and of the Radio and Television Committee, Counselor Uuc-Kib Espadas, summoning every registered citizen within the Nominal List of Electors to be told in regards to the execs and cons of the choice that they’ll be capable to take subsequent April 10, within the first citizen session to revoke the mandate of the pinnacle of the Presidency of the Republic.

And as soon as once more to the buddies, strategic allies of the Mexico Network, thanks very a lot on your belief, however, above all, for all of the work that, to any extent further, based mostly on this settlement, we must perform.

Thanks to every and everybody.
