“Do you remember how they created all the scaffolding of the so-called structural reforms, the communication reform, like the educational reform, like the fiscal reform, like the energy reform and everything for the benefits of minorities?

“A public servant has just left, adviser to one of these autonomous telecommunications organizations and is already working in a telephone corporation (…) a telecommunications company that is in the United States passes by, but do you remember how many people talked about this, like of the educational reforms, the tax reform, the energy reform, the media or most of the media on this subject. You spent a lot of time interviewing experts, Carmen Aristegui, and how did it all end? It was all a farce, a simulation,” said the President.
