Duque is accused by Petro of using his position to attack the army . He suggests that he should resign

gustavo petro was supposed to end his participation in Asofundos about pensions. However, he addressed politics following an unexpected interruption by a elected congressman.

The speech that was delivered by President Ivan Duque at the Asofondos congress did not go as planned. Instead of addressing pensions, he started to talk about politics and the ways in which. Gustavo Petro was attacked for taking the seat to attack troops. He also criticized his dual status as a congressman and a candidate.

He had barely begun with greetings, when the representative of the Chamber chosen by the Valle del Cauca of the Green Alliance party, Duvalier Sanchez interrupted him to ask him what he was going to do following the snarls of General Eduardo Zapateiro against the statements of the presidential candidate Gustavo Petro .

“Article 219. of the Constitution restricts the military from participating in any political scenario, taking sides, or engaging in any democratic debate that is currently taking place.” The entire nation is in chaos. Sanchez declared that it was a critical moment in the General’s decisions. Sanchez held his cellphone and broadcast the news on Facebook.

The president reacted with force to defend Zapateiro’s position in the midst of all the chaos, and said that anyone who has accusations against public force members they must be prosecuted.

Petro’s double role today as a congressman, head of the Opposition and a Candidate was also criticized further by the President Duque.

“Who made the accusations?” A senator or an individual candidate? “I resigned my position in Congress after winning the popular vote to be allowed to express myself in a candid manner and not use double hat and an extra seat to attack then, in response to the institutions by presenting themselves to the victim, as that’s not democracy either,” the president stated.

Sanchez tried to keep up with the controversy but was disqualified by President Obama, who demanded that Sanchez comply with the rules.

How did the battle between Petro Zapateiro and Petro Zapateiro begin?

On of April, Petro published this message on his social media networks. “While the troops are being executed by the Gulf Clan,” Petro wrote the message to his networks. petro gustavo are those who appear like the leaders have been corrupted,” the presidential candidate wrote.

On Friday, Zapateiro reacted in the same manner: “Senator,” do not use your investiture (parliamentary inviolability) to foretell the end of our soldiers and instead comply with your duty as a citizen to make a valid complaint to the Prosecutor’s office of the facts you mentioned regardless of who are.
