Mexico City - Representatives of the Venice Commission participated in an international seminar focused on “Financing of political life and electoral campaign” organised by the National Electoral Institute of Mexico.

The discussions also focused on the undue influence of money in the dynamics of a political community and its negative impact in contexts of economic inequality and concentration of wealth.
