#Brunette, the party of #President #Andrés #Manuel López #Obrador and with a majority in #Congress, supported #Manuel #Bartlett at the head of the CFE (#Federal #Electricity #Commission), after intense criticism for the massive blackout in the country on #Monday that left some 10.3 million users without service for a couple of hours.

#On behalf of #Morena’s parliamentary majority in the #Senate, party coordinator #Ricardo #Monreal supported López #Obrador’s energy policy and #Bartlett’s management at the head of the CFE. #In addition, he assured that does not agree with the proposal of a part of the opposition that an independent investigation be carried out into the causes of the blackout.

#After stating that the #Senate will do everything so that the #State continues to be the rector of the energy sector, the #Morenoist coordinator stressed that The statements of #Morenoist senator #Armando #Guadiana, of the #Energy #Commission and who participated in the request for the investigation, were in a personal capacity.

“#We do not share them,” said #Monreal, who argued that for many years the nation’s resources were delivered “and obviously there will be problems in the rescue of the national electricity industry, oil and energy in general ”.

#At #Morena we will support the director of the #Federal #Electricity #Commission, #Manuel #Bartlett. #We ask you not to stop, to continue in the fight to rescue the electricity industry, we know that you will succeed

#He also said that the state of abandonment in which the past administrations left the national electricity industry “is catastrophic”. “The federal government has been determined to resolve that situation. #Obviously, it is about avoiding all kinds of problems in the future and that electricity reaches 100% to consumers at affordable prices ”, he added.

“There must be fair competition and the CFE must be rescued, to avoid the rise in electricity prices. #That is the main objective and commitment of the #Fourth #Transformation (as the López #Obrador government is known), which I am sure will be fulfilled, ”he explained.

#And it is that, after the blackout that, for a couple of hours, affected 10.3 million users and left them without electricity supply in 12 entities of the country, including #Mexico #City and #Monterrey, CFE and #Cenace (#National #Center for #Energy #Control) explained that it was due to the shutdown of two transmission lines in two substations.

#This unleashed a protection mechanism that suspended the operation of 16 power plants, due to fluctuations in the #National #Interconnected #System. #This #Tuesday, both agencies detailed that the causes that these mechanisms were triggered was the fire in a pasture in the state of #Tamaulipas, in the northeast of the country, which affected two lines and caused the reaction.

#However, the controversy did not stop with the explanation, since hours later, the #Civil #Protection coordination in #Tamaulipas pointed out that the document that CFE presented on the fire in the municipality of #Padilla was apocryphal.

The entity’s #Civil #Protection authorities added that the supposed call to 911 made at 3:00 p.m. (#Central #Mexico time) last #Monday to report the fire that affected the structure of the CFE did not occur until, at 5:00 p.m., CFE personnel reported the accident.

“The (#Civil #Protection) service was not required because, somehow, they were solving it. #We didn’t even participate in that fire. #It is strange for us to be involved with a supposed job where they do a whole narrative with other schedules”, The public official added.

The CFE and #Civil #Protection in #Tamaulipas offered different versions of the events that would have caused the massive blackout on #Monday (#Video: #Government of #Mexico)

#This #Wednesday morning, in the usual conference of #President López #Obrador, the president’s spokesman, #Jesus #Ramirez #Cuevas, shared a video for show the ravages of the fire in #Tamaulipas which supposedly led to the blackouts that occurred throughout the country on #Monday, #December 28.

López #Obrador, for his part, accused his opponents of launching in favor of the privatization of electricity in #Mexico. “There is a problem, like this blackout, and they make a scandal and assume that it is already the debacle of the #Federal #Electricity #Commission, which they would like, that they are eager for the sector to be handed over to individuals,” he said.

“#So it’s a business matter, basically, nothing more than the president of #Mexico the only business that matters to him is public business, I am here to defend the interests of citizens, of the people of #Mexico ”, he settled.
