The Electoral Court urged leaders of the Broad Front (FA) not to use Batllista symbols during the campaign, since it is a distinctive symbol of the Colorado Party (PC) and the figure of the former president of the Republic, José Batlle y Ordóñezis linked to the identity of the traditional party.

Through a report, in the last few hours the public body urged the opposition force to avoid references to Batlle, after the Unir sector, which supports the presidential pre-candidacy of Yamandu Orsimade a spot with his figure and the República Batllista space made reference to it in the adopted name.

In April, the Executive Committee of the PC decided to denounce the leaders of the Unir sector and also those of República Batllista, the latter supporting the presidential pre-candidacy of the mayor of Montevideo in use of license, Carolina Cosse.

According to Telemundo, the Colorados promoted the complaint by considering that these sectors of the opposition are committing “electoral crimes” by using images and symbols of another party.

This Monday, the Electoral Commission of the Court issued a report in which it agreed with the PC in its complaint, but its ratification still remains to be resolved. In mid-May, the Unir sector presented their defense after the PC’s complaint, stating that “no rules were violated” and that the voting sheets would not generate confusion when voting.

The Colorado Party accused the Broad Front of wanting to “appropriate” the figure of Batlle y Ordóñez

However, from the PC itself the position suggested that there are sectors that seek to “appropriate” the figure of the former president of the Republic, since “Battleism has permeated all the lives of the country and society.”

The Colorado leader and former vice president of the State Railway Administration (AFE), Gustavo Ostapointed out in April that Batlle represents the “way” that Colorado people have of “seeing society.”

Osta went further and pointed out against the FA: “we are a clearly democratic party, we are clear when there is a dictatorship and there is not. They want to use Batlle in a party where that republican sense is not so clear because they do not have clarity in the moment to define, for example, that what is in Venezuela It’s a dictatorship.”
