Mexico City. The Superior Chamber of the Electoral Tribunal of the Federal Judicial Power (TEPJF) ordered the Congress of Nuevo León to legislate and issue as soon as possible the regulations related to gender parity and political violence, in order to comply with the constitutional mandate in the matter.
He also confirmed the call by the National Electoral Institute (INE) so that in nine states the positions and vacancies in local public bodies are filled exclusively with women, since there is currently an unbalanced composition between women and men.
These are the states of Aguascalientes, Jalisco, Michoacán, Oaxaca, Tabasco, Tlaxcala, Veracruz, Yucatán and Zacatecas.
In a non-face-to-face public session, the magistrates resolved the complaint of an individual who was seeking a charge for a female person.
They explained that the affirmative action implemented by the INE was founded and justified in the existing inequality between women and men in the integration of the occupational structure of positions of the National Professional Electoral Service at the national level, since only 25.26 percent of the positions are filled for the former, while 43.62 percent are carried out by the latter.
On the other hand, he ordered the New Congress to legislate on gender parity and political violence, but these provisions will no longer be applicable in the next electoral process, given that the state is within 90 days prior to the start of The elections.
Because of this, he asked the Local Public Electoral Agency (OPLE) to issue guidelines to include in the next state elections, the parameters derived from the latest constitutional and legal reforms published on the matter.
The magistrates considered that the congress fell into an omission when it did not comply with the obligations derived from the aforementioned legislative changes that linked it to establishing various provisions in the local regulatory framework.
They added that this decision should be taken as a guideline for the federal entities whose local congresses have not legislated on the subject and the electoral process begins in less than 90 days.
In this way, local electoral authorities will have to develop guidelines to establish the principle of parity and guarantee women a life free of political violence at the state level.
The magistrates determined the above when resolving a lawsuit promoted by the Citizen Movement party before the failure of the Nuevo León Congress to adjust local laws to federal regulations.
