Mexican president upholds objectives of electricity reforms

Mexico, Feb 4 (Prensa Latina) Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador again upheld the objectives of the electricity reform, which he is personally promoting as part of the battle to achieve the country´s energy sovereignty.

He recalled that when the first reform was approved, the conditions in the country were different and they were betting on the disappearance of the civil service and the absence of state-owned companies, banks, oil and electricity industries.

They did not want public health care or public education, he said, because what prevailed and was taken to a supreme rank was privatization, the transfer of public assets to private companies, that everything would be managed by them and that the State would not intervene in development and would fail to fulfill its social function, leaving everything in the hands of the market.

That is neoliberalism, which was already applied during the time of Porfirio Diaz, that is why we say that neoliberalism is neo-opportunism, because it was what was imposed during the Porfirio regime, all the wealth in the hands of foreigners,” he said.

Workers without social benefits or any benefits, not even one day of rest a week, that is why the revolutionary movement was to guarantee eight working hours, benefits, peasants’ rights to land and national resources for the benefit of Mexicans, the president explained.
