According to the organizers, in front of the National Palace (seat of the Executive) and the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) the citizens, dressed in pink and white, shouted in unison "my vote is not touched", "the Court has a mission, respect the constitution”.

This is the second demonstration that has been held in the capital and, in general, in the country against the modifications to the electoral laws proposed by President LĂłpez Obrador since last December, after Congress rejected a first version of the electoral reform. with which the creation of the National Institute of Elections and Consultations (INEC) was proposed to replace the current INE, among other things.

The member of the opposition block Va por México, Beatriz Pagés, one of the main speakers at the event held in the Zócalo, said that this movement is to defend the INE and is ready to "stand up to the enemies of the Constitution."

However, he pointed out that on this day a front is being created to win the 2024 presidential elections and asked the ministers of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) to “send to the dump” the so-called electoral “Plan B” of López Obrador.

The rally was also attended by leaders of opposition political parties such as Marko Cortés, president of the conservative National Action Party (PAN); Jesús Zambrano, from the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD); Alejandro Moreno, from the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), as well as the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Santiago Creel.

The president of Mexico reacts to the opposition march

The president of Mexico reacted this Monday to the massive march that the opposition carried out the day before to reject the so-called 'Plan B' of his government, which modifies electoral laws that have already been approved in Congress.

"This is a political matter (...) they don't care about democracy, they want the dominance of an oligarchy to continue, that is, a government of the rich, of the powerful. They don't care about the people," the president said during his morning lecture.

For LĂłpez Obrador, characters who resist the transformation of the country participated in the march on Sunday because, in his opinion, they are linked to the corruption that prevailed for so many decades.
