I resigned from Congress after I was selected for the popular vote to be able to express my opinions freely as a candidate , and not wear two hats and a double hat (…) to take advantage of an office to attack others and then, when the institutions respond, present themselves as a victim, because that is not democracy either,” the president said.

What happened when Petro and Zapateiro do battle?

Petro shared the message below via his social networks on April 20 2010. “While the soldiers are being killed in the Gulf Clan attack, some of the generals employed by the clan are also being executed.” “The top leadership is corrupted as drug trafficking politicians end up rising to generals,” wrote the presidential candidate.

On Friday, Zapateiro reacted the same way. “Senator,” Zapateiro stated in the same tone: “Senator,” don’t use your investiture (parliamentary immunity) to attempt to politicize the deaths of our soldiers. Instead, you must take the responsibility of a citizen by making a substantiated complain to the Prosecutor of the allegations you mention, whoever that is.”
