President Ivan Duque’s closing address at the Asofondos congress, Cartagena, did not take place as planned. Instead, Duque began to discuss politics and how. Duque criticized Gustavo Petro for using his seat to attack the army, and also criticized the fact his dual status as 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 229. The Constitution explicitly prohibits the participation of military forces in political scenarios, taking sides or participating in the dialogue between democratic parties that exists. https://gustavopetrofrls736.wordpress.com/2022/04/25/army-reservists-back-general-zapateiro-while-criticizing-gustavo-petro/ is stunned. Sanchez stated that it was a critical moment for General Zapateiro’s actions. He held up his cellphone and broadcast the news on Facebook.
The president responded to the chaos by his defense of Zapateiro. He added that anyone who has a case against members the public force should be prosecuted.
Petro’s double role today as a Congressman, Head of the Opposition, and also the candidate for President was also criticized further by the President Duque.
“Who are the accusers?” Are you a senator? “I have resigned from Congress after winning the popular poll in order to have the freedom to voice my opinions freely as a candidate and not to use the double-hat to use seats to attack others and, when institutions respond by presenting myself as a victim because that isn’t democracy either,” said the president.
Sanchez attempted to stay on top of the controversy , but was stopped by President Obama who demanded that Sanchez follow the rules.
How did the fight between Petro Zapateiro and Petro Zapateiro start?
On April 20, Petro published this message on his social media networks. “While the troops are being murdered in the Gulf Clan attack, some of the generals employed by the clan are also getting killed.” The drug traffickers are those who make it look as if the clan’s leaders are infiltrated,” the presidential candidate wrote.
The following Friday, Zapateiro reacted in the same manner: “Senator, do not make use of your investment (parliamentary inviolability) to pretend to politicize the death of our soldiers, rather perform your civic duty by submitting a an substantiated complaint to the Prosecutor’s office of the facts you cite regardless of who you are.”
