Three days after starting the open parliament forums on the electrical reform of President Andrés Manuel López, experts, academics, consumers, generators and even international opinions, warn that the reform is “harmful” for Mexico: with more blackouts, dirty energy, damage to the environment, increased costs and less infrastructure.

The Employers’ Confederation of the Mexican Republic (Coparmex) spoke out for changes in the law that lead to strengthening public and private investments to ensure that more energy in the country is generated from clean and renewable sources, with greater supply, supply and So consumers pay less.

“The reform as proposed by the Executive will harm the country, it will involve paying compensation millionaires when that money is so necessary in health, it will deteriorate the image of Mexico abroad, making us look like a country where contracts are not fulfilled and it will scare away even more investments; and the worst is the damage to families and the environment,” warned José Medina Mora, president of Coparmex.

For this reason, the employer leader trusted in this open parliament “it really serves, so that the Congress, having great visions, promotes what we need as a nation. We do not want more blackouts or dirty energy that damages our environment. We want a Mexico with Energy!”.

He expressed himself because the exercise to analyze the electrical counter-reform, which will last until February 15, really reflects. Well, he said, unfortunately, the experience in Mexico has revealed to us that open parliaments have become a formality, part of a process where listening is simulated, but when decisions are made, partisan logic and political interest prevail. , not necessarily the voice of civil society, experts or common sense.

For the president of Coparmex, it is important that legislators consider and eliminate from the initiative sent by the Executive: the elimination of the freedom to choose for consumers, the elimination of competition, and the environmental effects and public finances.

“Yes to competition, yes to more cheaper energy,” said Medina Mora.

He added that by limiting private participation and canceling existing contracts, the competitiveness. In this case, it will be the CFE who will seek to regulate its competitors, for what it will be, in soccer terms: the player, the referee, the ball and even the water carrier at the same time.

“With this they will be able to carry out monopolistic practices in favor of the CFE, and we Mexicans already know what happens with monopolies: we end up having lousy services and paying dearly for them. If the reform is approved as it was presented, and by eliminating competition, it will be the CFE that will “self-regulate” the transmission and distribution rates that they will charge,” he warned.
