As was thought, the blessed Open Parliament is an exercise in futility, not only because of the flood of rhetoric, but because it begins to look like one of those extravagances of Congress that the Palace dislikes so much.
Waste, because the mistake made by those who believed that the Government would start a political dialogue on the Electricity Reform and that they could adjust it is confirmed.
In the Treasury Room, yesterday, January 18, President López Obrador proclaimed; “No half measures. It is time for definitions, to know who supports the CFE and who is in favor of maintaining the privileges of private companies”. Doubts?
Education, weapon against inequality
Time will tell if the distribution of resources from the social programs of the López Obrador government alleviated ancestral poverty. If not, at least they have already shown a route that could vary, but they will hardly be able to suppress future rulers.
The same cannot be said of inequality, since the effects of this also ancestral ballast can only be alleviated and corrected with the golden bullet of education, education of opportunities, yes, but also of rigorous excellence.
Ideological cobwebs hide the goal. They pretend not to know that even the most modest economic growth requires an excellent education. Thus, Mexican society, like half a century ago, will be a society of opportunities for all, once again.
Will there be a bilateral energy policy?
Tomorrow, the Secretary of Energy of the United States, Mrs. Jennifer Granholm, will be at the National Palace to meet with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, as announced by the Chief Executive last Monday.
As Eduardo Ruiz Healy says, it is said, rumored and gossiped that the issue will be the electrical reform initiative and the possible affectation of the interests of North American companies. Perhaps, but there are other issues.
One of the objectives of the White House is to strengthen the national electric power transmission and distribution network and it is possible, only possible, that in this field there will be some collaboration for a certain bilateral integration. Oh the imagination.
