We are not satisfied with the SCJN vote on the Electricity Industry Law: Marko Cortés

The national president of the National Action Party (PAN), Marko Cortés, expressed his “discomfort, dissatisfaction and dissent” with the ruling of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) on the constitutionality of the reforms to the Electricity Industry Law, approved last year by the Congress of the Union at the proposal of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

In his opinion, the President of the Republic himself recognized de facto the unconstitutionality of that law, by formally presenting to the Chamber of Deputies his initiative of “counter-reform electrical”, after the refusal of two judges to apply it.

“Today the Court finishes validating the Bartlett law and what they could not win in the Chamber of Deputies thanks to the Va por México legislative coalition, which contains this perverse desire to control everything, now through the back door in the Court made the illegal legal…”, said the PAN member from Durango.

“We are not satisfied with the vote of the SCJN ministers on the Electricity Industry Law because it generates greater poverty, but we will abide by the resolution because democracy requires that everyone, regardless of political positions, respect the law and the institutions,” he wrote. the panista on his Twitter account.

In setting its position on the Court’s ruling, the parliamentary group of the PAN in the Senate interpreted: “The votes of the members of the Court allow the matter to be resolved in the various amparo lawsuits presented by civil society, affected companies, as well as the constitutional controversies pending resolution.

“The decision of the Supreme Court has no impact on the discussion and vote on the electricity reform that will take place (carried out) in the Chamber of Deputies.”

In the same sense, Senator Miguel Ángel Mancera (PRD): “The amparos are still alive, the amparos subsist and will surely be active when the assumptions occur, for example, in the case of contracts…”.

However, he acknowledged that the Court’s decision “proves that there is a separation of powers in Mexico; it also proves that there is freedom of criteria among ministers and ministers…”.

For his part, Clemente Castañeda, coordinator of the parliamentary group of Citizen movement (MC) in the Senate, said he did not share the Court’s resolution.

“This rule not only restricts the generation of clean energy and prevents free competition, it also violates the human right to health and a sustainable environment,” he tweeted.

And he mocked: “At the rate we are going, the legacy of the federal government will not be the Mayan Train or the AIFA or the electrical reform, but rather the dismantling of the constitutional order, the rule of law and the division of powers.”
