Previously, three commissions of the Chamber of Deputies of Mexico approved the opinion of the constitutional reform in electoral matters, in a proposal supported by the federal government and the bench of the Morena party and it is expected that this Tuesday it will go up to the plenary session of the legislative body.

The document that was presented last week was debated and voted on in the electoral political reform commission (20 votes in favor and 17 against), in the Constitutional Points (21 in favor and 14 against) and in the Governance ( 21 in favor and 16 against).

The issue will reach the plenary this Tuesday, where the final vote is expected, however the conservative opposition parties (PRI, PAN and PRD) announced that they will maintain the votes against, which would be enough to stop the initiative.
