Rendirán, antes de tomar posesión de su cargo, la protesta de ley bajo la siguiente formula: para recibir la protesta, el Gobernador, o quien éste designe, dirá: “¿Protestáis guardar y hacer guardar la Constitución Política de los estados Unidos Mexicanos, la Constitución Política de nuestro Estado, las leyes que de una y otra emanen, y cumplir leal y patrióticamente con los deberes del cargo de... que el Estado os ha conferido?”. El interrogado contestará: “Si, protesto”. Acto seguido, la misma autoridad que toma la protesta dirá: “ Si no lo hiciereis así que la Nación y el Estado os lo demanden”;
