The Instituto Nacional Electoral (National Electoral Institute, INE) issued a statement on February 3, 2021, saying that it would not be prudent to postpone the election because of the COVID-19 pandemic and doing so could even trigger a constitutional crisis by delaying the opening of the 65th Congress. INE board president Lorenzo Córdova noted the successful elections in Hidalgo and Coahuila in October 2020.[4]

According to the rapid count of INE, MRN won eleven states,  PAN won two, and PVEM and MC one each. The big loser was  PRI, which controlled eight gubernatorial offices prior to the election.[5]
