Morena accepts 9 of the 12 proposals of Va por México on the electrical reform

The parliamentary group Brunette and its allies (PT and PVEM) in the Chamber of Deputies, announced that they accepted nine of the 12 modification proposals presented by the Va por México coalition related to the electrical reform initiative of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

With a view to the beginning of the approval, next Tuesday, April 12, of the constitutional reform in electrical matters, the parties that make up the coalition Together we make history (Morena, PT and PVEM), showed their position regarding the 12 proposals of the Va por México coalition, which will be sent to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador for approval.

Ignacio Mier Velazco, coordinator of the deputies of Brunetteexplained that both the modifications of his parliamentary group and those of his allies were not included in the project in electrical matters, – made known in days past by the United Commissions of Constitutional and Energy Points-, since it was agreed with the parliamentary groups to “opportunely enrich” the opinion prior to its vote in committees on April 11.

In this sense, he indicated that proposals were presented goes to Mexico (PRD, PRI and PAN), of which his coalition could vote in favor of nine: establish access to electricity as a human right; low-cost access to electricity; establish the obligation of the State to lead the Energy Transition, with the participation of the public, private and social sectors.

As well as correct the errors and excesses of the past; open the opportunity for smaller businesses and companies to access the electricity market at lower costs; to strengthen the CFE granting budget and management autonomy; that the use of renewable energies be promoted through financing models for different types of users.

In addition to the reformulation of the model of Clean Energy Certificates (CEL) to align it with the IREC (International Renewable Energy Certificates) and that lithium is owned by the States, but that its use follows the rules of oil.

Among the proposals of goes to Mexico that were left out of Morena’s considerations are:

  • Strengthen market regulation by granting constitutional autonomy to the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE).
  • That the State maintain, reaffirm and strengthen its stewardship in the electric sector.
  • Improve the granting of permits to provide legal certainty.

In this sense, Ignacio Mier Velazco said that in relation to proposals 6, 7 and 10 of the coalition, the first two presented by the National Action Party, and the third by the PRD, which include the creation of the National Commission of Electric Networksas a State agency, and the one that refers to new permit schemes, Morena and its allies are in the process of reviewing it, since it is a technical matter, of planning the electrical system as a whole and of interconnection.

“Additionally, we want to point out that there is no precedent in any country in the world that has a scheme like the one proposed, even the OECD has not been able to issue an opinion on it,” he endorsed these last three proposals.

Finally, the morenista leader expressed his full understanding of the economic interests that revolve around the electrical industry, with a market of more than 315,000 million dollars, “for the same reason, there are pressures of all kinds. These are the consequences of a reform, that of 2013, which was voted in the dark and with its back to the people”.

For this reason, he called on the Va por México coalition to define whether it is in favor of an effective model of public service or to sacrifice its country for the sake of defending national and foreign private interests.

“We, our coalition, are committed, as we have indicated, to defend Mexico; that they bet on which side of history they want to be on, ”she stressed.
