By orders of the Complaints and Complaints Commission, the INE will have to edit the video of the second presidential debate, in which Gálvez called Sheinbaum a “narco-candidate.”

MEXICO CITY (apro).- The National Electoral Institute (INE) determined today that the nickname “narco-candidate” with which Xóchitl Gálvez Ruiz refers to his rival Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo constitutes possible illicit and slanderous conduct, for which it issued precautionary measures in favor of the presidential candidate of the Morena-PVEM-PT coalition.

By orders of the Complaints and Complaints Commission, the INE will have to edit the video of the second presidential debate, in which Gálvez called Sheinbaum a “narco-candidate”; According to the councilors, the standard-bearer of the PAN-PRI-PRD opposition bloc launched the adjective “without detecting minimum elements of veracity or basis to make this assertion.”

The nickname, which echoes the “narco-president” campaign, promoted on social networks against President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, was the product of an offensive strategy adopted by Gálvez in the second debate to provoke Sheinbaum and lead her to make mistakes.

After the exercise, Sheinbaum filed a complaint with the INE, in which she asserted that Gálvez slandered her in the debate; The electoral referee agreed with her and ordered the removal of the parts of the debate in which the opponent referred to her with that adjective.

But the INE only half fulfilled Sheinbaum’s request: the councilors refused to prohibit Gálvez from using the nickname again, as they determined that it was a future event of uncertain realization.
