The Mexican Senate Committees for Governance and for Population and Urban Development, headed by Cristina Díaz and Armando Ríos Piter, respectively, met with members of the civic society to discuss the nomination made by the Executive Branch of Paloma Merodio Gómez to be part of the Governing Board of the National Statistics and Geography Institute (INEGI).

Civic society organizations are protesting the nomination of Merodio Gómez by arguing that she “falsified her resume.” They also asked senators to nominate someone else, preferably a woman, that has all the legal qualifications and the professional experience that is required for such a position.

In an interview, Carlos Alberto Puente Salas, head of the parliamentary group of the Green Party (PVEM), denied that Merodio Gómez had provided any false information.

Puente Salas said that all legal procedures must be followed, and that on Thursday, Merodio Gómez will appear before the above-mentioned senate committees, in order to be questioned.

This questioning “is not conclusive, it is not binding. We have to study, analyze, and afterwards we will issue a decision,” Salas said.
