The president presented the legislative proposals that he will propose and that will imply constitutional reforms. He considered that there is fear that the corporation will lose its course, after being one of the main bets of the current administration.

The Federal Executive Power will propose that the National Guard (GN) join the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena), as an act of consolidation, said the president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, during the 105th anniversary of the Political Constitution of Mexico, in the city of Queretaro.

At the end of his speech, at the Teatro de la República, he presented the legislative proposals that he will propose and that will imply constitutional reforms. He considered that there is fear that the corporation will lose its course, after being one of the main bets of the current administration.

This initiative ─he explained─ has the purpose of forging an institution that passes six-year terms and guarantees the peace of the population.

“We believe that it is an institution that we all need, when it was created it had the support of all the parties in Congress, it was approved unanimously, but I am concerned… because we have to think of institutions that can serve – not in a six-year term, not in a decade, but several decades-; more when it comes to the protection of the people, to guarantee peace, ”he pronounced.

Through this reform proposal, he assured, the aim is to avoid what happened with the extinct Federal Police.

“I am concerned that if we do not leave this consolidated institution -and it is left loose as the preventive Federal Police was in its time- it could be lost. We need the GN -it is my proposal- to depend on the Secretary of National Defense: on a professional institution, with discipline”, he stated.

In addition to this reform proposal, he noted that there are still pending issues that he seeks to translate into constitutional reform initiatives; One of the priorities -he pointed out is the reform of the electricity industry, for which they will continue to weave consensus since he affirmed that the permanence of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) is at risk.

Likewise, he listed an upcoming proposal on electoral matters, with the aim of avoiding fraud in electoral processes.

“There are some other constitutional reforms. And they are trying to convince, persuade, of the need to reform the Constitution to strengthen the national electricity industry, because obviously there is an imbalance, there is no balance, in the previous reform all the privileges were given to private companies, yes we don’t solve it, the CFE disappears”, he explained.

On the anniversary of the 1917 Constitution, López Obrador said that one must be self-critical, after stating that in the last four decades the legal framework has been adjusted to benefit a tiny part of the population, to the detriment of the rest of the inhabitants. Therefore, he celebrated that in the framework of his administration, reforms in social matters have been proposed, such as the right of older adults to a pension, also for children with disabilities.
