INE approved the process of sending questions to the first presidential debate of Grupo Milenio

The General Council of the National Electoral Institute approved the process so that all citizens, from the age of 13, can send questions from social networks to be considered in the first presidential debate on April 7.

The project, previously approved by the Temporary Debates Commission, was supported by the General Council and the political parties, who were grateful to hear the adjustment of the method of receiving questions.

Starting February 20 and ending March 21, all citizens can send one and up to six questions on the subjects of education, health, anti-corruption, transparency, non-discrimination, and vulnerable groups through a microsite that can be created on the official website of the INE and that will be promoted on all social networks.

The only requirement is the questions They should stick to the topics of the debate, which cannot include partisan, ideological, or religious speeches, showing discrimination, government achievements, or government propaganda. It must be general and open so that any of the three presidential candidates can answer it without it being addressed to one.

ITESO’s Signa Lab presents a method to filter questions and select the most repeated questions to provide a package of 108 questions to the moderators, and they can explain what to do in general for the three candidacies and the three directly for each of the candidates.

The adviser to the Legislative Branch representing the Labor Party, Gerardo Fernández Noronare, requested that the raffle be conducted better.

“A proverb says that ‘the road to hell is paved with good intentions’; the intentions are good, but what networks guarantee is anonymity. That is, a person can use anything in that profile, as long as they have a certain gender, a certain age, that they belong to or do not belong to a minority group, or that they are often subjected to discrimination.

“And if a very large number of questions come to a certain topic, how do you determine which question is appropriate and which is not? If they all comply with the approaches mentioned, and if there is no criterion, then now I propose to hold the famous raffle. If a certain number of questions is exceeded based on those to be asked, it is completely random. “

Counselor Carla Humphrey, president of this temporary commission, points out that all the guidelines and procedures are in the project presented to the Council and all its members, including the representatives of the parties.

Therefore, he reiterated that the method is academic and SignaLab He was chosen for his subject-matter expertise.

“The method is much more complex; there are criteria for the frequency of the questions, which topics are asked the most repeatedly, diversity, the topics that are within the debate topics, and the ranking of the topics What is done is that you are redirected to a specific form where there is authentication with a Captcha code, so you can write these questions.

“Also, based on algorithms and other tools, for example, Signa Lab itself proposes many process tools and natural language processing and analysis that also include different algorithms to see which questions, for example, are presented in the same way.” “In this way, with the same words, with the same syntax, etc., we can reject these questions so that there is no, let’s say, intentional way for any question that should come up by frequency or rank.”

Questions will be divided into north, center, and south to ensure that concerns across the country are taken into account.
