The General Council of the National Electoral Institute (INE) attributed the attacks and disqualifications, including gender violence, against its members, especially the newly appointed councilors, to “political strategies”.

In a statement issued this Monday to announce that on September 7 it will hold its opening session of the 2021 electoral process, the councilors expressed their “strong rejection of the accusations that seek to weaken the institution or attack any of its members.”

They also questioned “the attacks that seek to violate the honorability of directors who have clearly demonstrated their integrity and democratic commitment.”

In their statement, they expressed that although the INE is open to public scrutiny and does not oppose or censor criticism against its decisions, it considers “appropriate to point out that unfounded injury to the authority or some of its members, based on political strategies of part, it is not healthy for the strengthening of democracy ”.

They also highlighted that polarization and disinformation degrade the democratic life of the country and that in the face of this the INE will guarantee the conditions of political contest that make possible the certainty of the electoral processes and the free and informed vote of the citizens.
