The president was supposed to withdraw from Asofundos on pensions. However, he instead was able to talk about politics following a surprise interruption by a elected congressman.
President Ivan Duque’s closing speech during the Asofondos congress in Cartagena did not start according to plan and instead of talking about pensions, he ended up talking about politics and how. Gustavo Petro was criticized for making use of his seat as a weapon against the army. He also criticised the fact that he’s both an opponent as well as a congressman.
He was not even beginning with the greetings when the member of the Chamber elected by Valle del Cauca of the Green Alliance party, Duvalier Sanchez, interrupted him to ask him what he was planning to do after the trills of General Eduardo Zapateiro against the statements of presidential candidate Gustavo Petro.
https://www.gatesofantares.com/players/gustavo-petrotacg670/activity/2743685/ of the Constitution specifically prohibits the military forces from being involved in political situations by taking sides or taking part in the debate on democracy which is currently in existence. The country is shocked. It’s a critical moment in the history of that General Zapateiro did,” Sanchez said as Sanchez was holding his phone to broadcast every thing that was happening via his Facebook page.
https://writeablog.net/gustavo-petrojgky039/gustavo-petro-winner-of-the-historic-pact-lights-and-shadows responded to the protest with a strong defense of Zapateiro. He said that any person who has allegations against members of public forces should be tried.
Petro’s dual status as a congressman as well as the head of opposition and candidate today was further criticized by President Duque.
“Who are gustavo petro ?” Is https://bandochoi.com/members/gustavo-petrofgiw053/activity/1444264/ or an individual candidate? “I resigned my seat in Congress when I won the popular vote to be permitted to speak in a candid manner and not to use double hats and a double seat in order to attack then, in response to the institutions by presenting themselves to the victim, because it’s not democratic,” the president stated.
Sanchez tried to get involved in the debate however he was stopped by the president who demanded Sanchez adhere to the rules.
How did the fight between Petro, Zapateiro begin?
Petro shared this message on his networks on April 20, “While soldiers are being murdered by the Gulf Clan, some of generals are on the clan’s payroll. https://www.openlearning.com/u/branchstokes-rawlga/blog/ReservistsOfTheArmySupportGeneralZapateiroAndCondemnGustavoPetro is corrupt when it is the drug trafficking political leaders who eventually rise to the rank of general,” the presidential candidate wrote.
On Friday, Zapateiro responded in the same manner: “Senator, do not use your investment (parliamentary inviolability) to pretend to play politics with the death of our soldiers. Instead, do your duty as a citizen by filing a substantiated complaint to the Prosecutor’s office of the facts that you mention no matter who you are.”
