In the package of reforms that will be presented by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on February 5, the absence of autonomous organizations will be proposed.
During the morning of this Thursday, when asked about the statements of the president commissioner of the Federal Economic Competition Commission (Cofece), Andrea Marvan, about the fact that the sale of Ibedrola to the federal government of 12 electrical energy plants and on the purchase of Mexicana de Aviación, the president responded:
“We also examine with a magnifying glass what these organizations are doing, to the extent that I will propose in the package of reform initiatives to eliminate them. All these organizations that were created to protect those individual and affect the public interest.
The head of the Executive emphasized that in the reforms that he will make public in a few days he will also propose to change “the articles approved against the interests of Mexicans, reforms carried out in the neoliberal era of the last 36 years only. to favor individuals.”
He pointed out that in the neoliberal era, “sub-governments” were created to protect these particular interests.
“But not only that, they created sub-governments because they had to protect themselves and that’s why they formed all the autonomous organizations where the private, particular, has more weight than the public, so the nature of that organization. is.”
In that sense, he added that the reform will suggest the loss of these moments, “because everything is a joke and they use it as an excuse that there should not be monopolies, how Pemex exists, which should Pemex has the same treatment as Shell or ExxonMobil, those foreign companies.”
The president also questioned that the organizations did not do the same review “under a magnifying glass” before the private monopolies.
“Are they disrupting cement monopolies? Are they disrupting communication monopolies? Are they disturbing the bank monopolies?” And immediately he himself answered: “No! There are no top agents, as they call them, only Mexicans are flying and they want to stop, or the Federal Commission (of Electricity) that we saved, or Pemex. But we will not leave.”
