He was scheduled to discuss pensions and close Asofundos. Instead the president addressed politics.
President Ivan duque’s closing speech at the Asofondos Congress Cartagena was not the one Duque had in mind. Instead of talking about pensions, Duque started to talk about politics and how. Gustavo Petro was criticized for using his seat as a weapon against the army. He also criticised his dual status as an opponent as well as a congressman.
When Duvalier Sanchez, the Valle del Cauca representative chosen by the Green Alliance party to the Chamber stopped him to ask what he was up to following the trills of General Eduardo Zapateiro’s remarks against presidential candidate Gustavo Petro , he had just started the greetings.
“Article 229. The Constitution expressly prohibits participation of military forces in any political situations, or taking sides participating in the dialogue between democratic parties that is in place. The entire country is in turmoil. It’s a critical moment, what General Zapateiro did,” Sanchez stated as he shook his phone to broadcast what was happening on his Facebook page.
In the midst of all the chaos and riots, Zapateiro’s president responded with a forceful defense of Zapateiro and said that if anyone was accused against public officials, forcibly, they should be brought to court.
President Duque went further and used the opportunity to criticize Petro’s dual status today as a congressman, the head of the opposition and as a candidate.
“Who is accusing you? Are they senators or a presidential candidate? “I have resigned from Congress in order to have the freedom to voice my opinions freely as a Candidat and not to use the double hat (…) for a seat to attack, then when the institutions respond, present myself as the one who is being attacked. This isn’t democratic,” the president stated.

How did the fight to defend Petro and Zapateiro get started?
gustavo petro posted the following message via his networks on April 20. “While https://notes.io/qeR9w suffer in the hands of Gulf Clan terrorists, some generals are employed by the clan.” “The leadership is corrupted when drug trafficking leaders become generals,” wrote the presidential candidate.
The following Friday, Zapateiro replied similarly. “Senator,” Zapateiro stated in the same tone: “Senator,” don’t take advantage of your investiture (parliamentary immunity) to attempt to politicize the death of our soldiers. Instead, you must fulfill your citizen responsibility of filing a legitimate complaint to the Prosecutor of the allegations you have mentioned, regardless of who that is.”
