Although the president was to talk about pensions at Asofundos, he spoke instead about politics. The surprise interruption was made by a elected congressman.
President Ivan Duque’s closing address at the Asofondos congress, Cartagena, did not be as planned. Instead, he started to discuss politics and what he would do. Gustavo Petro was attacked for taking the seat to attack troops. He was also unhappy about the dual role he has as a congressman and candidate.
Duvalier Sánchez, Valle del Cauca’s representative to the Chamber, interjected to interrupt his question to inquire about what he was planning to respond to the trills of General Eduardo Zapateiro, who had been defending Gustavo Petro’s comments.
“Article 209 of the Constitution specifically bans military forces from participating in political situations or participating in democratic debates. The nation is furious. It’s a crucial moment the way General Zapateiro acted,” Sanchez said as Sanchez was holding his phone and broadcast everything that was happening through his Facebook account.
The president responded in strength to the protest by the president’s defense Zapateiro.
Petro’s dual roles as a congressman, as well as head of the opposition and candidate today was further criticised by President Duque.
“Who are the culprits?” petro gustavo or an individual candidate? “I resigned from Congress to be able express my views freely and freely as a Candidat and not use the double hat (…) to gain an opportunity to attack the institution and then, when the institutions respond, present myself as the one who is being attacked. That’s not democratic,” the president stated.
Sanchez attempted to keep up with the debate, but the president interrupted him and demanded that Sanchez respect the rules.

Petro sent this message to his social networks on April 20th, “While the soldiers are being murdered by the Gulf Clan,” Petro wrote this message to his networks. ” gustavo petro in the leadership comes when politicians who traffic in drugs end up ascending to generals,” said the presidential candidate.
The following Friday, Zapateiro reacted in the same way: “Senator, do not make use of your power of investiture (parliamentary inviolability) to attempt to politicize the death of our soldiers. Instead, perform your civic duty by submitting a substantiated complaint to the Prosecutor’s Office of the facts that you mention regardless of who you are.”
