The president was scheduled to speak about pensions at the time he decided to close his Asofundos participation. However, he chose to speak about politics instead, after being interrupted by a elected congressman.
President Ivan duque’s closing speech during 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 criticised for using his chair to attack the army, and he was also critical of the fact that he’s also a presidential candidate as well as a congressman.
Duvalier Sanchez confronted him to inquire about his plans after General Eduardo Zapateiro’s remarks about Gustavo Petro ‘s.
“Article 219. of the Constitution restricts the military from participating in any political debate, taking sides, or engaging in the democratic debate.” The country is upset. This is a crucial time that General Zapateiro’s actions were a major one,” Sanchez stated as he shook his phone to broadcast the events going on on his Facebook page.
The president responded forcefully to Zapateiro’s defense in the midst of the chaos, and said that if anyone has complaints against public force members they must be prosecuted.
Petro’s dual role as a congressman as well as head of the opposition and a presidential candidate was criticized by the president Duque.
“Who is the one to blame?” Are you an elected senator? “I have resigned from Congress to be able express my opinions freely as a candidate, and not to use the double hat (…) for a seat to attack, then when the institutions respond, I will present myself as the victim. Because that is not democracy,” the president stated.
Sanchez tried following the controversy However, Sanchez was stopped by the president who demanded Sanchez observe the rules.
How did the battle between Petro, Zapateiro begin?
This message was posted by Petro on the 20th of April via his networks. “While the troops are murdered in the Gulf Clan attack, some of the generals employed by the clan are also getting killed.” http://b3.zcubes.com/v.aspx?mid=8097317 is corrupt when it is the drug trafficking politicians who end up ascending to generals,” the presidential candidate wrote
On Friday, Zapateiro replied with the same words: “Senator,” do not use your investiture, (parliamentary inviolability) to foretell the end of our troops and instead perform your civic duty and submit a substantiated complaint at the Prosecutor’s Office about the information you provided, regardless of who you are.
