Aguascalientes, México.- The blackouts registered in several states of the country are the result of the ineptitude of the Government and the lack of investment in the energy sector, said Xóchitl Gálvez, candidate of the Fuerza y ​​Corazón por México coalition.

Interviewed in Aguascalientes, the candidate said that the Administration headed by Andrés Manuel López Obrador opted for expensive and dirty energy, and the consequences are being paid by Mexicans in loss of productivity and competitiveness.

“In Tamaulipas, right where we arrived (yesterday) in Ciudad Victoria, 14 wind energy projects were stopped that would have been a huge possibility in these moments of lack of energy. Cleaner energy, cheaper energy and the CFE would have gotten involved with those six billion dollars that he paid Iberdrola to build transmission lines, and today México would be very well off.

“We would not have these blackouts that leave hospitals at risk of people dying, small businesses that have to close because they do not have power, industries that have had to stop their production lines with million-dollar losses,” he indicated.

The lack of energy, he considered, will make it difficult to attract investments that could reach the country due to nearshoring.

“I believe that what we are experiencing is the reflection of a Government that is inept in every sense. So we are going to have to quickly resume investment projects so that México can grow economically,” he said.

In addition to the blackouts, he said, in recent weeks the Government has faced the consequences of not knowing how to administer and implement adequate public policies.

“In the countryside there are strikes Sinaloa in Sonora, now that I was in Tamaulipas I also blocked roads because there is no guarantee of prices for farmers.

“Water, practically in all the cities of Tamaulipas, Tampico, Altamira, Madero, Victoria, Reynosa, Nuevo Laredo, Matamoros, in all of them I found a problem of water shortage. Here, in Aguascalientes, they are already working, but the The issue is that there were no resources from the federal government,” he said.
