Meanwhile, the national leader of the tricolor, Alejandro Moreno, insisted that “we point out in a firm, categorical and forceful manner that in the PRI we will not approve anything that damages the National Electoral Institute and the Federal Electoral Tribunal.”

The tricolor leader stated that “we are willing to discuss,” but explained that for his party, the insurmountable obstacle is not jeopardizing democratic and credible elections, not having a voter list and the biometric data of millions of Mexicans to the government, to not allow organized crime to be linked to or participate in the electoral processes of our country, and move to electronic voting.

“It must be clearly said: the INE does not belong to the government in power, the INE does not belong to the political parties; the INE is and should be for the citizens. Of course, the PRD Parliamentary Group is open to discussion, to a debate that is not about narrative, but about content,” he explained.

The one who announced that his parliamentary group would not participate in the dictates of the political-electoral reform was the deputy of the Civic Movement, Salvador Caro.

“What they are promoting is a para-democratic project that is going to distort our system, it is a project disqualified by the Venice Commission, which is the highest body that evaluates democracy in Europe, what they are doing is giving the conditions .to their president so that it puts his puppet, Movimiento Ciudadano advances, in front of the Mexicans who will not participate in this hoax”, he expressed.

The president of the Jucopo and parliamentary coordinator of Morena, Ignacio Mier, insisted that the commitment of his bank is to build a political-electoral reform for the benefit of the country, “not the imposition of the majority in a mechanical way .”

“We are here for that purpose, we have to build a collegial opinion in the coming days. I hope that in a democratic-political exercise we build an electoral reform that guarantees that in Mexico we can say “we who have developed in the democratic transition,” he said.

The vice-coordinator of the PT in San Lázaro, Gerardo Fernández Noroña, said that Mexico requires a new electoral system that pays attention to the Mexicans, and not to the demands of a group that is in another continent.

“Paniaguado Movement relies on the Venice commission, created in 1990, to advise on the formation of the constitutions of Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, after the fall of the socialist bloc; good advisor you have. We take refuge with the people of Mexico, we serve them, we owe ourselves to them and we will respond to them. And the departure of the current INE and the current Electoral Tribunal of the Judiciary of the Federation is a popular cry,” he concluded.

The first session of the United Commissions lasted for two hours, without a date being set for the next meeting.
