After yesterday, Sunday, the electrical reform, proposed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), was rejected, the former presidential candidate, Ricardo Anaya, celebrated that this initiative did not reach a qualified majority in the Chamber of Deputies.
Anaya maintained that “the united opposition is of great use to Mexico”because he managed to stop “another foolishness of the president and his government.”
The UNITED opposition is of great use to Mexico. The Bartlett law was going to cause a lot of damage, because it puts expensive and dirty energy above clean energy.
The next battle is to defend the INE. The opposition must remain UNITED to serve Mexico. pic.twitter.com/YUl39qBmfk

“In what head should dirty and expensive energy be put above that which is clean and cheaper?” he questioned, adding that with this reform, in addition, “they wanted us to return to the time of state monopolies.”
Anaya maintained that the Morena bloc and its allies “did everything to pass the initiative”, such as “blocking the entrance of the opposition deputies so that they could not vote. And when that didn’t work for them, they changed the date at the last minute, to vote for it no less than on Holy Sunday. But despite all his tricks, his initiative did not pass, because the united opposition prevented it “.
For this reason, he considered that unity is the key to the 2024 elections.
“In 2024 we are going to remove them, because they have given terrible results: we have a stagnant economy, more poverty and an insecure country, where people live in fear. We are going to remove them. And with better management of the economy, the support and the services that people receive are not going to be taken away: there will be more support and better services, especially in health and education. The good news is that there is another one and unity is the way,” he reiterated.
