Mex­i­can leader says foes made govern­ment big­ger

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WORLD -

Mex­ico’s new leader, long branded a so­cial­ist by his crit­ics, is rail­ing against big govern­ment.

Pres­i­dent An­dres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Fri­day that his pre­de­ces­sors cre­ated too many high­paid po­si­tions on reg­u­la­tory agen­cies.

“What did they do all this time? They made the govern­ment big­ger,” he said at a news con­fer­ence. “In­sti­tu­tions and com­mis­sions ev­ery­where.”
