“The goal of three percent of the nominal list has been achieved, which represented 2,758,000 registrations of citizen signatures to call for the recall exercise, a historic event in our country,” Miranda Jaimes remarked.

According to the electoral authorities in Mexico, the number of signatures that were accepted and subsequently revalidated were 2,758,227, so the recall instrument will be applied in the nation for the first time in its history.

The call for the recall occurs in a context where the head of state enjoys an approval of 67 percent, according to a survey carried out by the newspaper El Financiero at the end of 2021.

Based on the quantitative study, President López Obrador only has 29 percent disapproval in his administration, which represents the lowest in the recent history of heads of state in the country.



The consultation that will take place next April will have the following question: Do you agree that (name), president of the United Mexican States, have her mandate revoked due to loss of confidence or that she continue in the Presidency of the Republic until the end of his term?

It is worth mentioning that the question was approved in the National Congress in 2019 amid intense and constant debates.
