Duque criticized Gustavo Petro for using his seat to attack the army, and also criticized the fact the fact that he’s a candidate and a congressman.
Duvalier Santiago, the Valle of the Cauca Green Alliance representative, interrupted him and asked him what he’d do after the trills by General Eduardo Zapateiro in opposition to Gustavo Petro ‘s statements.
“Article 219 prohibits military forces from taking sides, participating in democratic debates or participating in political debates. The country is shocked. Sanchez stated that it was a crucial moment for the actions of General Zapateiro. Sanchez held up his phone and posted what was happening on Facebook.

Petro’s role in the present as a Congressman, Head of the Opposition, and also a Candidate was also criticized further by President Duque.
“Who was the person who made the accusations?” Are you Senator? “I have resigned from Congress in order to express my opinion freely and as a Candidat and not to use the double hat (…) for an office to make a statement, then when the institutions respond, present myself as the one who is being attacked. That’s not democracy neither,” the president stated.

The following Friday, Zapateiro reacted in the same manner: “Senator, do not use your investiture (parliamentary inviolability) to try to play politics with the death of our soldiers, rather perform your civic duty by submitting a providing a substantiated report to the Prosecutor’s Office about the facts you have mentioned no matter who you are.”
