“We make an insistent call to participate in the election day,” the letter states.

Returning to this and other aspects of the CEM positioning of last May 1, Cardinal Aguiar Retes encourages:

“In this same vein, we join the excellent initiative of the CEM, which has informed us of a campaign to promote voting in the next elections. The information provided by the CEM is accompanied in digital format with the slogan Let’s vote for a united and peaceful Mexico!

It is a document issued by the CEM in which a reflection is made on the elections and calls for sharing on social networks, with family and friends, the respectful call to vote.
