Double Elac fault.

An Airbus in Mexico recently experienced a double Elac fault in flight. What might have caused this?
Incident: Volaris A321 at Mexico City on Aug 2nd 2015, both ELACs failed

The probability of both failing must be incredibly rare though.

You cannot dispatch with ELAC1 fault, cause it's NO-GO

Maybe in your company MEL, not in MMEL and many others MEL,s.

ELAC2 is a MMEL NO-GO

The aircraft involved was almost brand new, so I wonder what caused both elacs to fail?
