Chamber of Deputies to Vote on Cutting Political Party Spending

National Action Party delegate coordinator, Marko Cortes, considered that it was not enough to just cut the financing

The Commission for Constitutional Points of the Chamber of Deputies will discuss and vote next Thursday regarding the ruling that proposes a 52 percent cut to public financing for political parties. The proposal has 16 initiatives presented by legislators from the different political parties, independent delegate Manuel Clouthier and the congress from the states of Jalisco and Sonora.

The proposal states that there is a clear social unrest and concern over the need to convince citizens to participate in political parties that aren’t able to convince voters to get involved in the country’s politics. It also points out that in practically all conversations in the Chamber of Delegates an interest in fixing this problem has been expressed.

Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) Legislator Guadalupe Acosta said the reform to constitutional article 41 anticipates a reworking of the mechanics to give public financing to the parties. She explained that the central objectives of the project are to decrease public financing by 52 percent and to establish an instrument to allow the parties to gain back the people’s trust.

National Action Party (PAN) delegate coordinator, Marko Cortes, considered that it was not enough to just cut the financing.

He insisted on the need for a political-electoral reform and a discussion of a new economic model.
