MEXICO – Huge rallies were held in several Mexican cities against what protesters say are government attempts to undermine the electoral authorities.

The biggest was in Mexico City, where organizers say 500,000 people marched on the city’s main plaza.

Lawmakers last week voted to slash the budget of the National Electoral Institute and cut its staffing.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador accuses the INE of being partisan.

Opponents described the recent vote as an attack on democracy itself, pressing the Supreme Court to overturn them as unconstitutional.
