The president was expected to withdraw from Asofundos on pensions. However, he instead was able to talk about politics following an abrupt interruption by a elected congressman.
President Ivan Duque’s closing address at Asofondos congress Cartagena was not the one Duque had in mind. Instead of discussing pensions, Duque began to discuss politics and how. Gustavo Petro was criticised for making use of his chair to criticize the army. https://www.onfeetnation.com/profiles/blogs/army-reservists-back-general-zapateiro-and-condemn-gustavo-petro criticized the fact that he’s both a candidate as well as a congressman.
Duvalier Sanchez interrupted him to inquire about his plans following General Eduardo Zapateiro’s remark against Gustavo Petro’s.
“Article 229. gustavo petro prohibits the involvement militaries in political scenarios, taking sides or in the democratic dialogue that exists. The whole country is disturbed. It’s a critical moment that General Zapateiro took part in,” Sanchez said as he reached for his phone and posted everything going on via his Facebook account.
The president reacted with strong response to the disturbance by the president’s defense Zapateiro.
Petro’s dual status as a congressman/head of the opposition as well as as a presidential candidate, was criticized by President Duque.
“Who was the person who made the accusations?” Are petro gustavo or someone running for office? “I quit my position in Congress after winning the popular vote to be allowed to speak freely as an candidate and not wear a double hat and a double seat in order to attack them, then when institutions respond with a presentation as the victim, since that’s not democracy either,” the president stated.
