His thing, he said, was to fight corruption.
Various polls attributed the resounding triumph of Andrés Manuel in 2018 to a satiety of millions of Mexicans with the corruption in the government of Enrique Peña Nieto.
Yes, for cases as outrageous as that of the White House and the complicit inaction of the institutions in charge of persecuting and punishing the corrupt.
For this reason, a speech based on forceful phrases against the transactions of the “power mafia” raised hopes in various sectors of the population.
Once in power, López Obrador once again asked for the trust of society in his team due to the inclusion of inexperienced profiles, obviously unprepared and even incompatible considering academic training-assigned position.
From this controversy arose the presidential justification that at the time of making an appointment, he chose profiles with 10 percent experience and 90% “honesty”.
Let’s review the main course, the supposed substance of this government, 90%.
From the first months of his administration, he invested the balance in the contracts: now there are fewer public tenders and more direct assignments, now the fingertip reigns in the assignment of works and purchases throughout the federal Administration, favoring companies such as Felipa, premium of the president; or those of Bartlett’s son. We recently learned that drugs are being bought more than a thousand percent more expensive than with Peña Nieto.
The appearance now of videos showing the President’s brothers taking money irregularly should not be surprising because it is their way of operating for decades, at least since 2004 when their operator René Bejarano was caught pocketing wads of bills.
If the most valuable promise, 90% of what is offered does not exist, does not operate and cannot be given because it is against the nature of the uses and customs of your clan, there is no reason to trust or hope in whoever lied and failed to do so. the most sacred thing he had offered us.
This is how we have arrived at the farce of fighting corruption with the corrupt and with corrupting even the concepts of corruption and honesty.
Let’s not even talk about 10 percent efficiency. _
