The electoral judges considered that the time of the sentence had already expired because it was confirmed in September 2019. That does not conflict with what is established by a provincial law that prevents candidacies to public positions of people who have a conviction of second instance while the sentence applied lasts.

If they are minors, I don’t see anything wrong.”.
Finally, the former mayor and brand new candidate, denounced: “The councilors are behind this, who have already impeached me. They look for me from all sides, because they know that I am horny. They are looking for me to resign and I am not going to resign even in fart “.
