October 7th, 2019

The Electoral Councilor of the IEEM said that derived from the 2014 electoral reform, political parties have the obligation to run as candidates for popular election positions the same number of men and women, so it will be more common to see Municipal Presidents, Deputies, Senators, and Governors.

Regarding the results of the 2018 elections, in the State of Mexico, he highlighted that 39 municipalities are headed by women, including Atizapán de Zaragoza, Chapa de Mota, Donato Guerra, Ecatzingo, Isidro Fabela, Metepec, La Paz, Tultitlán and Zacazonapan Meanwhile, in the LX legislature of the entity 37 of the 75 seats were for women (22 Deputies of relative majority and 15 by proportional representation) representing a percentage of 49.3%.
