The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) will not be included in the reform initiative that will be presented by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on February 5, which will seek to eliminate autonomous organizations.
The president clarified the above this Friday in his morning press conference at the National Palace, where he announced that he plans to eliminate between 10 and 20 autonomous bodies, but maintained that this does not mean any removal of staff.
“Let’s make it very clear, we will not fire anyone, we will have an efficient government, it will not be very expensive, and it will cost a lot for the people to maintain the government,” said López Obrador.
When answering questions on the subject, he maintained that he would not include all the autonomous organizations in his initiative and clearly emphasized that the CNDH would not be included in the reform package.
“No, the Human Rights Commission, no. “I’m talking about the organizations that were created to legalize the corruption that prevailed..
He mentioned that among the organizations that will seek to disappear are the Federal Institute of Telecommunications (IFT) and the National Institute of Transparency, Access to Information, and Protection of Personal Data (Inai), because, he believes, they are structures created to “simulate” the fight against monopolies and corruption but limit the functions of the state for the benefit of individuals and interest groups.
He assured that in “total theft of the world, in the full imposition of the neoliberal model, they must create new public policies and that is when the antitrust policy emerges with privatization, that is when transparency arises, that is when all organizations are supposed to arise. to control public actions.”, but no, it is to control and prevent the development of governments, and public institutions and provide free, open access to private companies.
He added that in Mexico “that’s what they did, they created a separate government to oppose the legal and legitimate constituted power, and protect the interests of those who feel they own Mexico, the oligarchy because there is no way these Organizations think about the city”.
“I see that they have done nothing for the good of the people, on the contrary, they have helped to pretend that corruption is being fought in Mexico,” he insisted.
He compared this situation to the policies implemented by far-right Javier Milei in Argentina. “They brainwashed us and now the Milei event is happening again, maybe the new thing is that the person is more luxurious, but the method is the same, he comes and says, all the debts of the rich in Argentina accepted by the government. , because that way we can reactivate the economy of Argentina. “A robbery in the desert.”
He explained that in his opinion the IFT, for example, “is not on the side of the people” because it does not allow the federal government to provide internet services at low prices in Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, and other cities.
“They have no intention of benefiting the people, their goal is not to have internet in the whole country, for the most humble people to have internet, to have internet and cell phone communication,” said the chief executive.
Regarding Inai, he insisted that its structure is too expensive for the public finances and said that nearly one billion of the organization’s budget should be allocated to pay pensions.
“Like these organizations, there are at least ten or twenty, but if you tell me that we will all disappear, no,” added López Obrador.
