Baja California Governor Marina Avila was included by court order in the list of elected public officials warning list.

The Electoral Court ruling mandates state Assembly members to discipline the governor.

Avila, along with two other colleagues of the President’s National Regeneration Movement Party were reported before the National Electoral Institute for making publications in social media that violated Mexican election law.

Gov. Avila lagged before Mexico City Mayor and the governors of San Luis Potosí, Chiapas, Sinaloa and Sonora.

The publications were made between Feb. 9 and March 21 and were related to promoting public safety and water issues.

Mexican law forbids public officials from promoting any activities during election time. The ban was valid before the so-called presidential recall. The vote was won by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador by 90 percent, although participation was lower than the legal requirement to become valid.
