Mexico.- The members of the Commission of Indigenous and Afro-Mexican Peoples, chaired by deputy Irma Juan Carlos (Morena), approved in an economic vote to request a working meeting with the National Electoral Institute (INE) to learn about the redistricting project .

At its ninth regular meeting, members of the Commission warned that if the redistricting were carried out, the representation of indigenous and Afro-Mexican communities could be affected.

Deputy Juan Carlos explained that a meeting with the INE advisors and, if possible, those responsible for the technical work will be requested as a Commission to learn more about this project.

“With the information that is available and together with the National Institute of Indigenous Peoples (INPI), an investigation will be carried out and a document or agreement will be drawn up by the Commission to request the INE for the information and criteria used for the redistricting.”

Deputy Carlos Alberto Valenzuela González (PAN) expressed his concern about the redistricting carried out by the INE, since Veracruz, the entity he represents, will be one of the affected states, since it goes from 20 to 19 districts.

He pointed out that if said action continues, it must be in favor of the indigenous and Afro-Mexican communities, so that what has been achieved in years is not “turned back by a desk decision and the original peoples continue to be represented.”

The deputy Maribel Martínez Ruiz, from the PT, commented that Oaxaca is in the same situation, since all the districts are undergoing modifications, for which there is a concern for the native peoples.

“That a redistricting be done, but according to the uses, customs and respect for our peoples,” he said.
