The president was due to discuss pensions when the president decided to end his Asofundos participation. But he decided to discuss politics instead after being interrupted by an elected congressman.
President Ivan Duque’s closing remarks to the Asofondos congress in Cartagena didn’t go according to the program. Instead Duque spoke about politics and how. He criticised Gustavo Petro for using his seat to criticize the army and criticized the fact that he’s running for congress and also a presidential candidate.
Duvalier Sánchez, Valle del Cauca’s representative to the Chamber intervened to interrupt his question to inquire about what he planned to follow up on the comments of General Eduardo Zapateiro, who had been trying to defend Gustavo Petro ‘s claims.
“Article 219 of the Constitution specifically prohibits the military forces from participating in political debates and taking sides, or even participating in the debate on democracy that exists. https://gustavo.petrotdfo288.werite.net/post/2022/06/03/Reservists-from-the-Army-back-General-Zapateiro-and-criticize-Gustavo-Petro is in chaos. Sanchez declared, “It’s a critical time what General Zapateiro has done,” as he held his phone and broadcast everything on his Facebook account.
The president was caught in the middle of the commotion, the president responded with a forceful defense of Zapateiro and stated that if anyone made allegations against members of the public force they should go to justice.
Petro’s dual role as a congressman as well as head of the opposition today was condemned by the president Duque.
“Who are the accusers?” Which senator? The president stated that I had resigned as a member of Congress following the successful consultation. This was to be able as a candidate to freely express my opinions and not put on a double helmet to attack the institution, and then portray myself as an innocent victim. petro gustavo is not democracy.”
Sanchez tried following the controversy however he was detained by the president who demanded Sanchez adhere to the rules.
How did the fight for Petro and Zapateiro start?
Petro shared the message below via his networks, April 20 2010. “While the troops are being killed in the Gulf Clan attack, some of the generals on the clan’s payroll are also being killed.” The corruption within the clan’s leadership is evident when it is the drug trafficking politicians who become generals.” The presidential candidate wrote
The following Friday, Zapateiro reacted in the same way: “Senator, do not take advantage of your power of investment (parliamentary inviolability) to pretend to politicize the death of our soldiers. Instead, fulfill your citizen duty of an substantiated complaint to the Prosecutor’s Office about the facts you have mentioned, whoever you are.”
