While The World Is Looking Elsewhere, Mexico May Be On The Brink Of Losing Its Democracy | Opinion

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

Mexico’s populist President Andrés Manuel López Obrador wants to dismantle the independent National Electoral Institute. 

While much of the world is focused on Brazil’s Oct. 30 presidential elections, we should also pay attention to an alarming political development that could mark the end of democracy in Mexico.

The Mexican government is planning to dismantle the National Electoral Institute (INE), the country’s highly respected independent electoral body.

The INE has played a key role in Mexico’s transition to democracy since the late ’90s, when it became an autonomous government institution. It has since guaranteed free and fair elections in a country that, before 2000, had been ruled by a single party for the previous seven decades.

But now, Mexico’s populist President Andrés Manuel López Obrador wants to dismantle the INE and replace it with a much smaller and weaker electoral body.

On Oct. 26, López Obrador’s Morena party in Congress approved a 21-member commission to set in motion major political reform. In addition to downsizing the INE, it would cut public funds and media time for political parties and eliminate 200 of the 500 seats in the lower house of Congress.

The Mexican Congress is scheduled to debate these changes in late November, when few in the country will be paying attention: It’s when Mexico’s national soccer team is scheduled to play against Poland, Argentina and Saudi Arabia in the World Cup in Qatar.

López Obrador, much like Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro and former U.S. President Donald Trump, has long criticized his country’s electoral system. He began lashing out against electoral authorities since he lost a 2006 presidential election and blamed it on fraud.

But the INE, which has undergone several reforms since its creation, has gained respect at home and abroad.

Sen. Tim Kaine, chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Affairs Committee’s Western Hemisphere Subcommittee, told me that, “Dissolving the National Electoral Institute in Mexico would be a serious mistake and another major setback for democracy in Mexico.”

Kaine added: “In the U.S. and around the world, a credible electoral process administered by independent institutions is critical to ensuring” democratic rule.

Roberta Jacobson, former U.S. ambassador to Mexico, likewise told me that, “The idea of dismantling the INE is beyond worrisome.” She added that it has been “one of the world’s strongest electoral authorities, with its leaders called on by countries around the world” to help them ensure fair elections.

“It’s part of López Obrador’s efforts to weaken or do away with independent regulatory agencies,” Jacobson said. “Strong democracies need strong, independent institutions. They are dying in Mexico.”

International democracy-advocacy groups are sounding alarm bells.

The European Commission for Democracy Through Law, also known as the Venice Commission, issued an Oct. 22 report concluding that López Obrador’s plan to replace the INE with a new institution “might compromise the impartial and independent operation” of the electoral body.

Daniel Zovatto, regional director for Latin America of the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA,) a Sweden-based non-governmental organization, told me that López Obrador’s move against the INE is “very serious, worrisome and dangerous.” He added: “It could also have a very negative impact on other countries in the region.”

The Mexican president’s claim that he wants to downsize the INE to save government funds is ridiculous, considering the huge amounts of money he has spent on highly questionable public projects.

López Obrador’s government has spent $18 billion on building the highly controversial Dos Bocas oil refinery, at a time when Saudi Arabia and other oil-rich states are investing to diversify their economies away from oil. He has also spent $5.2 billion to build a new airport for Mexico City called Felipe Angeles International, which is 30 miles away from the city and virtually empty.

By comparison, the INE’s annual budget of $706 million has been one of Mexico’s best investments to ensure democratic stability, without which Mexico would find it much harder to draw investments.

Don’t be fooled: Dismantling the INE would take Mexico back to the old days when an almighty ruling party could rig elections at will. The only difference would be that, this time, López Obrador would be at the helm.

      presidente Madero also forgave the traitors in the mexican Army after the revolutionaries beat their ass under porfirio diaz...
      then the "forgiven federales" arrested and murdered Madero and his brother and his vicepresident...
      Guardia Nacional was supposed to be a Fuerza Civil.

    2. You might not care about Mexico (which makes me wonder what you’re doing on this site and why you’re reading this story that’s pretty much mostly about Mexico), but alot of people do, myself included…Sol, where did you get that INE is respected in Mexico??? INE is corrupt. Did you see what happened in AMLO’s recall vote???!!! And the bs excuses they came out with?!!! And the fraud they they over looked when that put Calderon in the presidency?!!! Did you know the two heads of the INE were put there by the PRI and that one of the things AMLO wants to do is let the mexican people vote on who would be filling those spots??? (which is more democratic then the current process don’t you think) And look at how much they get paid !!! Almost double the president does!!! Almost double of what the president does!300,000.00 pesos, when the president gets paid 160,000!!! Seriously Sol, with all do respect but If you don’t know about the recall look into it. That alone speaks volumes why INE needs to go. What happened there? Look into how they were trying to sabotage it from the time it was first mentioned. How they tried to claim it was inconstitutional and they had to take the matter up with the supreme court. And after the supreme court gave their verdict how INE tried to say it would be a waste of taxpayer money, that no other presidency ever wasted money on that. And when AMLO and company came up with the funds to pay for it, during the time before the vote any public figure speaking on it, giving the date or anything favorable or giving info towards the recall we’re fined, but any opposition speaking negatively about it we’re allowed to rome free!!! Look at how few voting boths were opened and how alot of the ones that were opened were moved on the day of the vote without any notification to anyone. People that had showed up to vote had to figure out on their own where they were moved to without INE assistance while the time to vote was ticking!!! Is that democratic. How about INE disqualifying acouple of morena candidates on some nonsense, while the other candidates (from the opposition) we’re doing and saying all kinds of sh*t with no consequences. Look at what happened with Samuel (gov. Nuevo Leon from MC). It turns out he ran for gov. with illicit money which is supposed to take him out of the governorship atomically, but INE hasn’t even spoken on it let alone fullfilled their duty amd removed him. And there’s a handful of cases like that with the oposition these last couple years. INE just acts like it never happened. INE’s laundry list is long and various and they have a hear, see, speak nothing policy when it comes to the opositon, a manipulative, lying, falsifying one when it comes to morena and co. Anybody that says INE is not corrupt and biased or has any sort of respect for them has no idea whats going on over there at best. Maybe INE was respectable in the 90s, but power corrupts at times, especially when it’s running rampant. Presently the INE is no question, without a doubt, rotten to it’s core. All one needs to do is do a little research and/or pay attention what’s going on over there for one to realize it. INE needs to go.

    3. Exactly. I feel like they lack knowledge and don't understand how corrupt INE has been in the past. They're controlled by Pan and Pri. They are responsible for all these years of corruption in Mexico. They steal elections, and that's a fact. They screwed over AMLO twice. I live in Tijuana, and I have known this for years. They helped Salinas become president along with the rest of the idiots.. INE has rigged elections results for years. AMLO should dismantle it. Get rid of it asap. INE is the real enemy of the Mexican people.

Just like another silver spoon imbecile, he remains an aggrieved crybaby that still can't get over the prior presidential elections to implement his so called transformation. When he was elected he had a clear mandate that could have advanced México greatly but alas an estúpido will be stuck in his ways. 🍺

    3. Just like you’re stuck in your ways. Why don’t you do some research before running your mouth. Mexico has been corrupt for a long time before AMLO and if you think he could just waltz in there and in a snap of his fingers fix that then you’re living on fantasy island. It’s too institutionalized. Case in point: You seen what happened in the case of the 43 missing students a couple weeks ago? They had gathered evidence in that case, showed it to the prosecutor and they issued the arrest warrants on the individuals that were involved which were alot. People from organized crime, the government, and the military were involved. After the arrest warrants were issued, a day or two later 80 were cancelled! 80! Even though there’s evidence against them! That’s crazy! And on such a high profile case. In front of everyone and all in public and with no explanation! Now imagine, if they’re doing something like that on such a public and high profile case, what are they doing out of public view and in the shadows. That’s just to give you an idea of what AMLO is dealing with. There’s so much sh*t out there that he isn’t attacking everything. He can’t, it’s impossible. There’s no way it could be done. Not only cause of the amount but because there’s too many interests working in the shadows and to many laws that were put in place that hinder progress, so he has to pick and choose what he attacks and at what time. He’s also trying to put in place and lay the ground work to make it harder for corrupt and unjust things to happen in the future. Make no mistake about it, he won’t be able to address everything when his term runs out. He’d need another 12 years at the very least, but he will have left it much better and much easier for the next man who takes the boton. They just got to keep the pace. Hopefully it’s Noroña. That man is a bitbull and the only presidential candidate they can’t find dirt on. You should see him in action in the senate. He’s a beast, a patriot , honest, and a man of principles. He’s intellectual, has a quick mind, savy, and calls it how it is. The only thing is at times his temper has kinda gotten the best of him when it comes to certain things, but as of late he’s been handling it pretty well. He’s only human. Either way, I feel as do alot of mexicans, that he’s the man for the job. Atleast that’s what the most recent polls say….Back to AMLO though, don’t believe me or anyone else on AMLO. Do some homework and look into it for yourself. It’s mot all roses, but this aint no walk in the park neither. It’s a walk on one of the steepest mountains in the world. One that has never been walked on in Mexico. Just remember that.

  9. The Monroe Doctrine for SA democracy! The 1973 Chilean coup d'état was a military coup in Chile that deposed the Popular Unity government of President Salvador Allende. Allende had been the first Marxist to be elected president of a liberal democracy in Latin America. On 11 September 1973, after an extended period of social unrest and political tension between the opposition-controlled Congress and the socialist President, as well as economic war ordered by United States President Richard Nixon, a group of military officers led by General Augusto Pinochet seized power in a coup, ending civilian rule. The Nixon administration, which had created the conditions for the coup, promptly recognized the junta government and supported it in consolidating power.
    During the air raids and ground attacks that preceded the coup, Allende gave his final speech, vowing to stay in the presidential palace and refusing offers of safe passage should he choose exile over confrontation. Salvador Allende died in the palace.

  14. This article’s argument is built on the premise that there have been fair elections in Mexico; that the US and EU have been praising Mexico for its electoral processes.

    These same nations love the relationship they have with Mexico, as this is where they can get offshore labor at prices that compete with China. Since the 90’s, their companies have enjoyed hilariously beneficial deals in Mexico thanks to the corrupt officials elected through the current processes. They want to keep Mexican labor cheap, they want to continue to extract as much as they can from this resource-rich land.

    Don’t be fooled: they praise Mexico’s election systems because they have are one of the tools they use to keep Mexico where they want it.

  18. WoW. It’s crazy the things people are saying. I myself watch the proposal about the INE. And on my view is not to dismantle the institution. Obrador wants to change the operations to make it cheaper. Mexico has the most expensive election system in the world. The INE is a corrupt intuition that create projects to get more money and they have way to many people on payroll with crazy salaries to the point that the heads of the company have 5 to 6 personal secretaries making 200k pesos a month doing nothing and those secretaries also have secretaries making $100k pesos a month. That’s crazy. Obrador wants to reduce the cost 40%. No need for Mexico to have the most expensive election institution in the world. Solidaridad es lo que se necesita en Mexico. Que se les dejen de pagar salarios millonarios y gastos innecesarios. Ya basta. Enough is enough. No more out of hand salaries and luxury expenses.

    6. If AMLO is so corrupt, why is there so much money for him to dip into for all the projects and programs he’s creating in Mexico??? He could have pocketed that money. Why didn’t he borrow any money during the covid19 crisis like everyone else??? He could have pocketed that money like alot of the prior presidents have when they would borrow. Why is he subdivising gas so the mexican people won’t spend more on gas??? Once again he could have pocketed that money. Why did he put a deal in place to lower the main food basket prices for the mexican people??? Why did he create the beca program (free education)??? He could have pocketed that money. Why did he build the dos bocas refinery??? He could have pocketed that money. Why did he create the social security program??? He could have pocketed that money. Why did he increase and is going to increase two more times before his term is up the amount of that social security payment and had it put in the constitution so it can’t be touched??? He could have pocketed that money??? And he’s done all that and more without borrowing or raising taxes. That money is there because he’s not corrupt. Other recent presidencies didn’t have that revenue because “they were” corrupt. They would steal all that money and then still implement their famous “gasonilazos” and raise gas prices so they could have still more revenue to steal from. Don’t take my word for it. Do some research so you could see if there’s any truth to what I’m saying. It’s better than wasting your time running your mouth and looking like an idiot because of how obvious it is that you have no idea what your talking about. Wish you luck with your research. And have a good day

    INE stole the election from Obrador on at least 2 occasions. 2006 and 2012. There’s a reason he has a 70% approval rating and that the corrupt establishment absolutely despises him.

  24. There was much fraud in the 2020 US elections when courts took it upon themselves to change election laws.......some of it has already been overturned and changed back for the midterms. There was vast amounts of illegal ballot harvesting and massive amounts of illegal campaign contributions. I Arizona alone there were 100's of thousands of ballots without their original chain of custody making them illegal but were counted anyways....just one example. The midterms will have less shenanigan's than in 2020.

    2. @11:50 PM: Right on !!! There is an nefarious election scholar at Harvard (forgot name) tears into the serious flawed American election system based on factors you cite.
      IMO: Big money and power actors that include criminal elements such as Mexican narco-cartels played important roles.
      The American DEMOCACA Party is highly corrupted and can influence many local and State elections. Mexican narco cartel carve out "kingdoms" ( sanctuary realms) where they can operate in relative safety.
      What happened to the videos showing Latino figures dumping huge numbers of ballots into mail deposits boxes?
      Anyway, America's election system is rife with faults... "Money and power in the right places can determine our realities"....

    3. @11:50 pm i think you need a good kick in the private parts. Donald the clown Cheeto president own DOJ clearly said there was no fraud. His own appointed judges dismissed his 60 lawsuits. And no evidence was ever seen or produced.

  26. A country ruled by cartels and someone is worried about the electoral system.

    It is like how MagaLickAnus and KKK complain about Dominion voting machines.

  28. I live in Mexico and have seen firsthand the corruption that takes place during elections. People are offered the equivalent of $25 USD cash along with a basket of groceries to vote a certain way. The "democracy" is already over and Morena will become the new PRI.
