The three directors have 30 days to present their releases and, subsequently, the Comptroller’s Office will make a final resolution.
The Comptroller General of the State (CGE) issued the offices of predetermination of responsibilities with fine and dismissal for the president of the National Electoral Council (CNE), Diana Atamaint, and the members José Cabrera and Esthela Acero for allowing four political organizations, among them , Social Commitment Force, remain registered and maintain your legal status. The directors must present their releases.
In August 2019, the Comptroller’s Office audited the CNE’s signature review process and found that «Social Justice», «Podemos», «Liberad es Pueblo» and «Fuerza Compromiso Social» were approved, despite the fact that they had not complied with the required signatures. So she asked to consider the legal situation of these groups.
On June 18, the Comptroller issued the follow-up report on these recommendations and determined that there was a breach of nullifying the registration of the aforementioned political groups.
The breach, explained the entity, is on the part of the members of the Plenary of the CNE that, with their vote, approved resolutions so that the National Movements continue to be registered and maintain their legal status, in breach of constitutional and legal requirements.
For not addressing this point in the Plenary of the CNE and resolving the Comptroller’s request to eliminate the four political movements, the control body issued the offices of predetermination of responsibilities with a fine of more than USD $ 7,800 and dismissal for the three majority advisers .
In addition, the letter was issued with a predetermination of responsibilities with a fine and dismissal against the National Director of Legal Advice, Dayana Torres, for issuing reports recommending to maintain her right of registration.
In addition, a predetermination of responsibility was issued with a fine for Christian Cerda, National coordinator of Computer Security and Electoral Technology Projects; Christian Navarrete and Johana
Sánchez, director of the National Directorate for Technological Infrastructure and Electoral Communications; Lenin Sulca, National Director of Political Organizations; Luis Mafla, National coordinator of Computer Security and Electoral Technology Projects; and Xavier Buitrón, National Technical Coordinator of Political Participation.
Atamaint, Cabrera, Acero and the rest of the officials have 30 days to present their releases and, subsequently, the Comptroller’s Office will make a final resolution.
