INTRODUCTION

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights has had under consideration
three cases regarding the July 7, 1985, electoral process to elect deputies in the State of
Chihuahua (case 9768), the July 6, 1986, municipal elections in the capital of the State of
Durango (case 9780), and the July 6, 1986, elections for governor of the state of Chihuahua.
The petitioners in all three cases belong to the National Action Party (PAN), and they allege that
irregularities were committed by members of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), the
party in power in Mexico.

There are allegations of various de facto irregularities in the years in question,

independence that should characterize the electoral bodies responsible fore ruling on such
