In a blatantly anti-democratic act, Mexico’s National Electoral Institute (INE) is changing the rules of the upcoming June election to prevent President AMLO’s left-wing Morena party from winning “over-representation.”
The electoral body admitted this openly: It doesn’t want too many elected representatives from AMLO’s party, because even if they win those seats fairly in the election, it would result in “over-representation.”
It is pretty incredible how blatantly Mexico’s right-wing political establishment and its oligarchic ruling class are trying to rig the vote.
AMLO is the first independent president of Mexico in decades, whereas his predecessors were obedient neoliberal US puppets.
Ironically, the president of the INE, Lorenzo Cordova, has been self-appointing himself president for more than a decade.
Ésto es ir en contra de la voluntad del pueblo, el pueblo quita y el pueblo pone y es un hecho que la inmensa mayoría de los mexicanos queremos fuera del INE a éste corrupto. pic.twitter.com/tk3EDrftNk
