Austerity and INAI resources will fund pensions

The cost that this means for the government to contribute to the new pension scheme will come from the new republican austerity plan, assured President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

In addition to the savings measures, he explained that he would allocate the billion pesos to INAI or other autonomous organizations for this purpose.

During his conference, López Obrador offered some details on the constitutional reform initiatives he will send to Congress on February 5: Mind you, the transparency institute costs a billion to maintain. Why don’t those billions go to the pension fund? I give you an example like this.

Noting that he will also send initiatives to reform the judiciary, the electoral system, etc., López Obrador mentioned the need to correct the injustice committed against workers with changes to the pension regime, which was promoted by Ernesto Zedillo in 1997.

How do I correct it? We think we will send an initiative so that the government can help correct this injustice slowly, so that everyone is not burdened, and from the first year, not the worker or the employer, but the government contributes to the background, and that over time it becomes normal and the employer and the worker contribute what is equal to it.

He stated that, if approved, the government’s contribution will begin this year without the cancellation of pensions for the elderly. So it may be five, 10, or 15 years, but we will correct this injustice. So we know it’s going to catch up with us because it’s not everything.

He emphasized that these changes have no connection with the current pension administration scheme because it only focuses on greater justice so that workers can receive their full salary when they retire.

For the President, with greater savings in the republic, it is possible to finance the implementation of this reform because, before the neoliberal policy, with other mechanisms, the resources were sufficient. He dismissed the accusations, saying that behind this initiative is the intention that the government will match the savings of the workers. Zafo! I am not a thief, and I am not corrupt.
