Mexico: 9 men have self-defined as women to get round gender quotas

Last edited Thu May 13, 2021, 07:53 AM - Edit history (1)

in municipal Mexican elections

The Force for Mexico party presented 18 male candidates for different positions in the state of Tlaxcala that were rejected by local electoral authorities for failing to comply with the legal parity required by Mexican law. But the party was able to solve the problem quickly by registering its candidates who had previously registered as men as self-determined women.

Surprisingly, in an extraordinary session, the General Council of the Tlaxcalteca Elections Institute (ITE) endorsed the party's registration of candidacies since, according to the majority of the members, the self-ascription of people's gender could not be legally questioned. Thus, no one can question the sincerity of the 18 requests for gender self-ascription, even though this was the number necessary for the party to comply with the principle of parity.
