Who will do what at the new JCE?

The JCE has good news. It will draft a bill so that birth certificates no longer require a “legitimization stamp.” That is, so that birth certificates do not expire. The JCE also announced it is giving priority to eliminating red tape to rectify civil status records.

The five-member plenary of the Central Electoral Board (JCE), now headed by Román Jáquez Liranzo, announced the working committees. Likewise, the plenary announced it would be meeting every Wednesday, starting with 25 November 2020. One of the first tasks of the JCE is to put together a strategic plan.
