He also recalled the case of Coahuila’s current Legislative Assembly, which without having yet approved the said law has consisted of 60 percent of deputies and it has laid the groundwork for making this paradigm shift official.
“It also has to do with the number of judges, it has to do with the number of judges, so that we gradually have parity, half and half, it affects the government’s orders, the boards of the decentralized bodies, the number of directors, the number of people made up of them. .. As for the governorship, he is talking about a different scheme for parity, about the electable parity, once we can guarantee that one gender will be governor in the next election, we must guarantee that in the next election it can be the other gender that can gain access ”.
