ESTRADA RODRIGUEZ, José Luis  and  MENDIETA RAMIREZ, Angélica. Local government, agency and State in the redesign of representation through the path of consecutive reelection. Rev. IUS [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.42, pp.255-278. ISSN 1870-2147.

Democracy is built on two elements: from the Institutions that Safeguard Rights, through the law; and citizens who take an active role in monitoring their prerogatives. This work makes an analysis on the conditions of Consecutive re-election at Municipal level, recently approved in the Political-electoral Reform in 2014. This was a mechanism to guarantee the agency, in terms of O'Donell, characterized as the possibility of citizens to influence political representation, to promote democratic quality. The methodology used is the interpretative analysis of the authors and their postulates, as well as the presentation of their arguments. It is noted that an institutional redesign is necessary to modify the relationship between the State and citizens in their capacity as political agents.

Keywords : Democracy; reelection; citizens; State.
