International News: Thousands protest to protect democracy in Mexico as Presidential elections nears

Mexico City

Posted: Monday, February 19, 2024. 2:13 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Sunday, thousands gathered at Mexico City’s main square expressing support for the national electoral authority.

According to Reuters, protesters are accusing President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of trying to weaken the body ahead of a presidential election in June.

The massive protest to “protect” the National Electoral Institute (INE), come after Lopez Obrador sent a sweeping package of constitutional reforms to Congress, which would include an overhaul of the INE.

“Authorities are seeking to eliminate (autonomous institutions), to subordinate them or take them over,” Lorenzo Cordova, the former head of the INE, said to the crowd. “We’ve seen a ferocious attack against these institutions.”

Protestors say that the Mexican President is attempting to concentrate power in the hands of his party’s government, though Lopez Obrador has said he will respect the results of the election.
