It is a Plan B that the Government proposed after annulling the electoral reform debated on Tuesday. It did not prosper because two-thirds of lawmakers, that is, 334 votes, did not approve it.
The difference with the one debated on Tuesday is that it is not a constitutional reform but secondary electoral laws that can be approved by a simple majority, which the Government enjoys, but does not have the scope of those denied.
These regulations that are intended to be modified seek to limit politically and economically the National Electoral Institute (INE), compact its structures, and restrict some functions of the Electoral Tribunal of the Federal Judicial Branch.
INE should recalculate the tabulators of its almost 18,000 workers and local electoral bodies so as to adjust their salaries to the limit established in Article 127 of the Constitution.
No one in this area, local councilors and magistrates, should earn more than the President of the Republic.
