The President of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has advocated for a national referendum to investigate and prosecute his predecessors for alleged corruption. He stated that consulting the citizens will strengthen democracy in the country, but some critics view this as a political stunt.
For the referendum to be binding, 37.4 million people must take part in the voting process, but the voters appear unenthusiastic about this.
Director of the polling company, Roy Campos, said that even with 90 percent “yes” vote, it will still be difficult to get 30 percent turnout.
The polls were opened at 8am and we’re to close at 6pm, with the results to come in in two to three days.
Critics argue that the referendum is not important as ex-presidents can be tried like any other citizen of Mexico, especially if prosecution has any evidence of corruption against them.
