A working group has been established, which will review and assess all the aspects related to this issue. We are in the stage of drafting the regulatory acts on this issue. We are confident that we will achieve success in this issue, because we are aware that there is great sensitivity amid politics regarding the use of technology in April 25, 2021 elections.
