The June 6 elections will be monitored by almost 3 million representatives from political parties. So far, 559 international observers have also been accredited.
The first electoral results will be released on Sunday night through the Preliminary Electoral Results Program managed by INE.
Analysts agree that political tensions are focused on achieving the majority in the Lower Chamber, which is currently held by the ruling National Renovation Movement (Morena) party.
