Eliminating autonomous organizations, as President Andrés Manuel López Obrador intends to do, would be a “serious setback” for the democratic development of the country, said the Employers’ Confederation of the Mexican Republic (Coparmex) in a statement on Tuesday, December 12th.

After expressing concern and disagreement with AMLO’s proposal, the employers warned of a “strong defense” of these institutions.

“We will be strong defenders of their permanence and strengthening, since they are fundamental pillars for the balance of powers in the country and guarantee the rights of the people.”

On Monday, December 11, in his morning conference, López Obrador announced that he would develop a reform initiative with which he would seek to eliminate autonomous organizations because, he considered, “they are useless.”

In this way, he referred to organizations such as the National Institute of Transparency, Access to Information and Protection of Personal Data (INAI), the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT), and the Federal Economic Competition Commission (Cofece).

“There cannot be a rich government with poor people, and there are many onerous organizations that are useless, they are superfluous expenses,” AMLO stated.

On Tuesday, December 12, Coparmex responded in a statement, where it considered that the elimination of these organizations “would be a serious setback for the democratic development of Mexico.”

Likewise, the Coparmex demanded to have the complete appointments of the members of organizations such as the INAI, which since April has not been able to resolve any citizen demand that involves ordering any public body to make information transparent because it does not reach the minimum of five commissioners to meet, as dictated by the Constitution.

He also asked to guarantee a sufficient and fair budget for its full operation. Coparmex recalled that these institutions do serve society since they guarantee the right to transparency in government actions.

They also guarantee accountability, protection of personal data, and compliance with regulations on different topics.

In addition, the correct functioning of telecommunications and markets through free competition, he noted.

Likewise, he said that the specialized functions and powers that they exercise as constitutional guarantor bodies from their different areas “are decisive for the stability of the principle of Division of Powers” and “the effective validity of human rights.”

“Weakening them and concentrating all decisions in a single Power would represent an authoritarian regression against which citizens have fought for decades.”

Finally, he pointed out that its existence and permanence cannot and should not be a function of the government in power or of particular political ideologies. “Autonomous bodies are a citizen achievement expressed in the Constitution. “Mexico cannot take steps back,” he concluded.
