Taking advantage of the fact that tomorrow, Wednesday, former president Ernesto Zedillo will go to Mexico to participate in a forum convened by a financial institution, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador asked him many questions that he hoped he would answer.
Among the questions raised this morning by the Chief Executive can be seen: why he harmed the workers in his pension reform, why the passenger trains disappeared, and the reason why he absorbed the private debts of Fobaproa.
“Now that Zedillo is coming, I want to ask him: one, why did he turn the private debts of some into public debt? Fobaproa, because they brought him as a speaker like José María Aznar from Spain, this whole conservative block, let him answer that.
The second question of the Tabasco native came just a few days after he announced that he would send Congress a reform proposal that would reverse the constitutional changes initiated by Zedillo regarding pensions.
“Why did you send a pension reform to Congress where the worker, upon retirement, will not receive, if it has not been changed and another one is made, that reform will not receive even 50 percent of his salary? What motivated him to harm the workers, and why did he do it?
“I don’t know what this pension reform means. Did they miscalculate the financial run? That’s the second one; that will mean it,” he said.
The third for the PRI: “Why did the minimum wage not increase during your government, but on the contrary, the purchasing power of wages was reduced?”
And the last question, he said, is for the former president to detail the reasons why the passenger trains disappeared and why he went to work as a consultant to the American company where he entrusted the national railways.
