Our adversaries do not like that, but this is not to taste, it is that we have to move forward. So, it is going to be acquired, an appraisal of the brand, the emblem is going to be made and there is going to be a company so that there are more flights and in this way the plane ticket does not increase so much, ”he explained.

  • The president asked the Bank of Mexico to balance the country’s economic growth, after yesterday they will increase the interest rate to 10 percent, although he clarified that he respects Banxico’s decision.

“The Bank of Mexico raised the rate to 10 points, it is autonomous. We promised to respect their decisions, sometimes we would like them not only to take care of themselves, although it is important to control inflation, which is why they increase the rate, but also to balance taking care of growth and always go more to fight inflation and no to promoting growth, that is, it is what has always been done, it is very traditional, but the decision must be respected,” he said.

“Why do they increase the rate, because that way inflation drops, nothing more than the risk of the economy paralyzing, of not having economic growth because they raise rates, they do this all over the world (…) Here it has been done, well although the rate is high”, he explained.

  • The head of the federal Executive warned that he will not negotiate the electoral reform that he sent to the Congress of the Union, since each legislator must assume his responsibility with the citizens.

“I have been fighting for many years for there to be democracy in the country, because there has hardly ever been democracy in the history of Mexico, like flashes,” he declared.

“Until now, the first steps are beginning to be taken, after fraud, many frauds, we are obliged to establish an authentic democratic system and not only remain in representative democracy, but move towards participatory democracy, that is why the importance of consultations, of the revocation of the mandate”, he pointed out.

He supported his idea that an Electoral Reform is needed to make democracy cheaper in the country.

“I maintain that the Electoral Reform is needed because a lot is spent on the organization of elections: 20 billion pesos, Yucatan has a budget of 40 million pesos a year. It is the country where it costs the most to make elections in the whole world, ”he explained.

“It is proven that the councilors and magistrates do not guarantee impartiality, clean, free elections, they are part of the electoral fraud that we have historically suffered in Mexico, it is a shame that Mexico is one of the countries with the most electoral fraud in history,” he explained.

(…) In the case of the Iron, it is a very important work, the governor (Mauricio Vila) asked us to expand the school of arts, which is one of the best in the country and it was decided to do so, ”he detailed.

In addition, six hotels will be built in Nuevo Uxmal, Edzná, Calakmul, Tulum, Chichén Itzá and Palenque that will strengthen the tourist experience.

In total there will be 115 complementary works that include viaducts, wildlife crossings, bridges and vehicular crossings.

  • President López Obrador stressed that Yucatán is a model entity in terms of security that has fostered peace and tranquility for its inhabitants.

“We have worked in a coordinated manner for the benefit of the progressive people, good people of the Yucatan Peninsula and, in particular, of this state. (…) This is an exemplary state, a model, because it is the state with the lowest incidence of crime in our country”, he emphasized.

“It is a recognition of the government of Yucatan, the people of Yucatan, the culture of the people of Yucatan. (…) It is something exceptional, which comes from afar, and it has been shown that the more culture one has, the less social decomposition, there is less disintegration of families”, he added.
