President Enrique Peña Nieto signed the decrees enacting the National Anticorruption System Laws in the National Palace, during which he noted that this system is the result of the active participation of organized civil society, in favor of honesty, integrity and accountability.
He declared that in response to the demand to combat corruption, the Mexican state has created two new institutional pillars: the National System of Transparency and as of today, the National Anticorruption System.
He noted that if public confidence is to be restored, we must all be self-critical, starting with the president.
National Anti-Corruption System
- It will be chaired by citizens and serve citizens.
- It creates strong, autonomous institutions to prevent and punish corruption
- Unnecessary red tape will be eliminated, and it will ensure that hiring and public works are carried out with complete transparency.
- Public Service will be more integral and there will be real, effective accountability. An anti-corruption prosecutor's office and specialized chambers in the Federal Court of Administrative Justice are available.
- The Chief Audit Office of the Federation and the Public Administration Secretariat have been strengthened.
“The new system represents a paradigm shift, which provides the country with new instruments to strengthen integrity in public service and eradicate corruption”.
“I am sure that this system will constitute a watershed in Mexico”.
