After yesterday’s historic blackout, they assure us at the National Palace that the one who should have reason to worry is the general director of the Federal Electricity Commission, Manuel Bartlett.
They tell us that the president Andrés Manuel López Obrador He placed two loads on Don Manuel’s shoulders. The first, the presidential promise that he made that a blackout like yesterday will never happen again.
And the second, nothing less, than the image of the so-called Fourth Transformation, since the president pointed out that “adversaries” use this type of failure to criticize his project and say that the CFE it does not work and must be privatized.
This morning the President promised that there would be no blackouts, but they remind us that just last year at the end of a tour of CFE power plants in Querétaro, Michoacán and Colima, he made the same commitment.
So Bartlett closes the year with these two presidential charges and is obliged not to allow AMLO to break his word, or to have a bad image of Q4.
Bartlett, they tell us, can’t take another blackout like yesterday.
