Researchers, mainly from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), as well as national and foreign electoral observers, filmmakers, and cartoonists, will present proof of election fraud through the through the #NiUnFraudeMás citizen movement. They demand that the election result be annulled due to serious violations.

The group documented more than 600 irregularities in the electoral process and has brought more than 20 complaints to the Electoral Crimes Prosecutor’s Office (Fepade).

About 20 speakers at a press conference asked for the resignation of National Electoral Institute (INE), Electoral Institute of the State of Mexico and Electoral Tribunal of the State of Mexico directors.

Fernando de la Fuente, a professor at UNAM, said that “we are facing an organized crime group from the government. The government says it is incapable of dealing with crime and of giving society security but it cannot do these things because it is itself a constitutively organized crime group.”

“The INE is an onerous, incompetent and corrupt white elephant,” said Irma Sandoval a UNAM researcher.

She added that, “we want those gentlemen who took a bonus of 650,000 pesos in 2016 and who earn 207,000 pesos a month and those in the Preliminary Election Results Program (PREP) who gave Del Mazo 238,145 votes to Del Mazo to stop costing us.”

Among the actions the movement announced, is one to present a trial for the protection of political-electoral rights in order to guarantee the right of citizens to know the information contained in all ballots used on June 4.

They will also present a special appeal, based on Article 17 of the Constitution that guarantees effective judicial protection, which requests the nullity of the June 4 election for voting violations.

Academician John Ackerman said that “there is no governor or elected governor, nor will there be for a while. The law contemplates corruption, which can be applied even after the Electoral Tribunal of the State of Mexico resolves it and the Electoral Institute of the State of Mexico (IEEM) records a majority. The result can still be challenged in the upper federal hall.”

He reiterated that “we have enough time to clean this mess up, there is no hurry, we have three months to explore and clarify things.”

As regards the complaints filed, Ackerman stated that “the responses from other authorities of the IEEM and INE have been a shame. They have literally dismissed each and every one of the complaints that we have presented without even opening them, without even peering in. They refuse to talk and say that Fepade has received the complaint and stated to investigate.”

They called on anyone who has evidence of electoral fraud to send it to and to gather the evidence and take it to electoral authorities.
