Initiative by Benito Nacif of IFE to safeguard voters's party membership

Benito Nacif, a councilor of Mexico's Instituto Federal Electoral (IFE), proposed an initiative to further safeguard the privacy of those who are members of political parties.

Currently, apparently anyone can technically access a party's padrón or membership lists, with the names of the members, thus depriving them of their right to privacy and keeping their party affiliation secret.

I interviewed Benito Nacif for a paper I am working on, and he struck me as one of the absolute most reasonable of IFE's current councilors - as is the current proposal.
