The State Secretariat for Culture and Tourism of Minas Gerais (Secult-MG) will request the invalidation of 910 votes in the elections for the State Council for Cultural Policy (Consec). The information obtained by THE TIME points out that CPFs were used that are suspended or belong to deceased holders, differ in terms of the holder’s date of birth, have ownership different from that declared or are not included in the Federal Revenue database.
The invalidation request took place after counting all 16,719 votes that were received on the platform. “Secult-MG clarifies that it will forward the ongoing electoral process to the State Attorney General’s Office (AGE), aiming for knowledge, analysis and adoption of appropriate measures. The objective of this measure is to ensure total transparency and compliance with legal regulations during the process election in progress”, he highlighted.
The AGE will evaluate the non-conformities found by the secretariat. “The Secult-MG team is committed to following all necessary steps to guarantee the legitimacy and integrity of the electoral process. Therefore, after the process returns to this secretariat, we will proceed with the adoption of the measures outlined in the opinion”, he highlighted.
The procedure, according to the ministry, aims to ensure that the electoral process is conducted fairly and in line with “all applicable standards”.
