With 56 votes in favor, 35 against and an abstention, the plenary session of Senate, in extraordinary session and with exemption from all the procedures, in less than three hours, since he arrived from the Chamber of Deputies , approved the reform to the Law of Acquisitions, Leases and Services of the Public Sector, that empowers the federal government to buy drugs abroad.
The president of the Senate, Monica Fernández Balboa (Brunette) After formalizing the result of the vote, it dictated that the decree is sent to the Executive, which has the constitutional power to promulgate legislative decrees.
Following the vote on this issue, which at times focused on the fact that it was intended to facilitate the purchase of vaccines, against the warning that the change was not necessary, the plenary held a minute of silence in honor of the people who have lost life Covid-19 victims.
Before this approval, in an extraordinary session still to be continued, opposition legislators from the PAN, PRI, MC and PT with positions against Brunette and PT In defense of the modification to the law that was accused, it is unnecessary and only opens room for the direct allocation of purchases.
Senator Dante Delgado said that this is a law that is voted upon after a click by the head of the Executive, to which, later, Rubén Rocha Moya (Morena) He replied: “The President’s disapproval is because he wants to guarantee the right to health of Mexicans,” and in that sense “to go against is to go against vaccines.”
The PAN members Julen Rementería del Puerto and Damián Zepeda said that the reform has nothing to do with facilitating the purchase of vaccines against Covid-19.
the senator Martha Lucia Micher Camarena (Brunette) He said that there is annoyance because with this reform “they ran out of business, the moches,” and pointed out that with the presence of Covid-19, there were increases in drugs, for which he clarified that the federal government will make purchases “with national suppliers that they do not make pigs “
At 11:30 p.m., the legislative procedure for the reform of the Acquisitions Law, which will be challenged by Unconstitutional, by MC.
Negligence and despondency in the pandemic
The senator Emilio Álvarez Icaza, without a bench, regretted that the trend of the current administration is direct awards, a tendency to huge discretion and opacity. “I hope we don’t have to do favors with those who need campaign financing.”
He also described as unworthy the rate of infections in the health sector, in states and in the IMSS, where the reaction of negligence and disdain is already expressed.
He accused that the reform guarantees the reform. That is a falsehood, said Álvarez Icaza and announced that he joins the Action of Unconstitutionality that will be presented in the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation, the senator Dante Delgado.
The morenista Rubén Rocha Moya insisted that the reform is necessary so that there are no obstacles to Covid-19 vaccine that provide instances of international health organizations.
Contrary to this, the PAN Rementería del Puerto said that it is not true that with the reform “the vaccine will come to Mexico”, a country that suffers “from an inefficient government that has killed many due to its poor performance.”
Rementería, a man from Veracruz, said that the “Morenavirus” that is killing Mexico and which will be vaccinated on June 6, 2021 is attacking Mexico, “in the elections to change Chamber of Deputies, 15 governorships and thousands of local authorities.
The president of the Health Commission, Miguel Ángel Navarro Quintero (Morena) He said that he believes in the national pharmaceutical company, and asked to distinguish from the coyotes of medicine who bought the drug under pressure and resold it at the price they wanted. That fraudulent sale, he said, was made at unimaginable costs in the country.
When pointing out that Morena “our fingers crack”, the senator for Nayarit replied that there were others who at the time took them, for example, to China to games in spaces of historical heritage.
Xóchitl Gálvez Ruiz (PAN) He accused the federal government that for three months it has denied support to people to stay at home and they had to leave because they did not have food.
