Constitution

As we move closer to July 5, the upcoming elections, the political environment becomes even more tense. Despite the efforts of the various partisan groups earn the trust of society and thus achieve its approval and vote, a new campaign citizen is brewing with great force and direction, the call to null vote. As a sign of disapproval of the ruling class, the null vote represents the social discontent that has been generated by how badly that manages the country, acts of impunity, corruption, indifference and boredom; lack of supports, services, etc. Although some other sectors agree that an opportunity is being wasted when void vote, this campaign has a much deeper sense. It is estimated that around 60 percent of the electorate, it will not use its legitimate right of vote, coupled with the number of NULL votes that are expected to have and the division of the rest among the different political parties, any that is elected, will face a big problem at the moment of assuming his position.He will rule with all the legality under the Constitution; However, it will lack most importantly, the legitimacy in society.

It is said that when there is a crisis, it is when the world is moving in all directions, either by desperation out of her, seeking new ways to move ahead, etc. Inevitably, if null vote presents a great number of followers citizens, the political system will have to yield to public demands or new forms of Government; system of accountability, access to information more transparent, public attention, etc. If the null vote is the solution or not, will have to await the outcome of next July 5, where two potential options can occur: If the null vote remains in its usual percentage will be considered as normal and there will be no reaction; However if you get a significant increase, we should expect what will happen in relation to the facts that come after the elections.
