Mexican institute’s rebellion against plebiscite is for money

Mexico, Jan 14 (Prensa Latina) The rebellion of the highest officials of Mexico's National Electoral Institute (INE) against the plebiscite for the revocation of mandate is due to money, Secretary of the Interior Adan Augusto Lopez said on Friday.

At the morning press conference at the National Palace, which is temporarily given by Lopez because President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador tested positive for Covid-19, he used the saying that “the evil of all evils is the love of money” to address the INE issue.

We respect those officials but they are violating the Constitution if they insist on the mediatization of the quality of the consultation on the mandate revocation and they will be responsible for what happens, he warned.

The issue came up at the conference because several reporters brought up the categorical refusal of leaders Lorenzo Cordova and Ciro Murayama to accept the austerity plan proposed by the government on Thursday to save nearly three billion pesos (150 million dollars), which would be left over to hold the consultation as under the law.

At the conference, it was revealed that Cordova and Murayama earn the equivalent of 13,100 dollars a month and received 25,000 dollars in bonuses this year alone, without taking into account thousands more for social benefits, representation, travel, per diems expenses, etc. jg/aph/mem/lma
