INE sanctions the use of 15,000 signatures of dead people for the Revocation of Mandate

The National Electoral Institute (INE) decided to penalize the Civil Association “Que Siga la Democracia” because it delivered false information and documentation to the Institute, consisting of 14 thousand 940 signatures of deceased people to activate the exercise of the Revocation of Mandate.

The law required two million 758 thousand signatures to validate the democratic exercise, but “its promoters collected only one million 370 thousand signatures through the App, that is, they would have lacked more than one million 200 thousand signatures, but thanks to the paper they delivered another 9 million 759 thousand signatures”, informed the counselor Ciro Murayama.

The Executive Directorate of the Federal Register of Electors (DERFE) carried out the comparison and analysis of the signatures received by the INE and, as a consequence of the detection of irregular signatures, gave notice to the Technical Unit for Electoral Litigation (UTCE) so that they initiate the investigation into the signatures of deceased persons.

It is concluded that of the 14 thousand 957 supports delivered, 14 thousand 940 corresponded to people discharged due to death; that is, apocryphal documentation was presented to fraudulently increase citizen support for the Revocation of Mandate, which constitutes an infraction of the electoral law.

The original project provided for a fine of 5 million 300 thousand pesos, but after an evaluation of the resources with which the organization operated, it was decided to sanction with half a million pesos.

The agreement also contemplates other restitution measures such as the publication of this resolution during a period of 30 calendar days, both on the social networks of the AC and its representative and on its electronic portal.
