The campaign on the referendum will take place from July 15 until Aug. 1 and will cost approximately US$44.5 million.

The campaign intends to inform Mexicans about the consultation’s goals, the locations for the voting process, the reception, and the publication of the ballot’s results.

INE plans to fund 377,606 promotional messages on radio, television, print, and digital media to promote people’s participation and debate.

Mexicans, who are willing to participate as observers for the popular consultation, must register online through INE’s website or local headquarters. 

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) promoted this consultation as part of his strategy to combat government corruption from 1988 until 2018.

If approved, the referendum will path the way to trial ex-Presidents Carlos Salinas (1988-1994), Ernesto Zedillo (1994-2000), Vicente Fox (2000-2006), Felipe Calderon (2006-2012), and Enrique Peña Nieto (2012-2018).
