Duque accuse Petro of having made use of his position to attack army. He recommends that Petro quit his job.

Although https://www.click4r.com/posts/g/4420237/reservists-of-the-army-are-in-support-of-general-zapateiro-and-denounce-gustavo-petro was to speak about pensions at Asofundos however, he chose to speak about politics. The surprise interruption came from an elected congressman.

President Ivan Duque’s closing speech at the Asofondos Congress, Cartagena, did not take place according to plan. Instead, he started to discuss politics and what he would do. Gustavo Petro was criticised for using his chair to attack the army. He also criticized his status as both a candidate as well as a congressman.

He was not even beginning with the greetings when the member of the Chamber selected by Valle del Cauca of the Green Alliance party, Duvalier Sanchez interrupted him to inquire of the representative what he planned to do following the comments of General Eduardo Zapateiro against the statements of the presidential candidate Gustavo Petro.

“Article 229. petro gustavo prohibits participation of military forces in any political situations, or taking sides in the democratic dialogue that exists. The entire country is in disarray. Sanchez stated, “It’s a critical time that General Zapateiro’s done,” as he held his phone up and broadcast everything on his Facebook account.

In the midst of the chaos, the president responded with a forceful defense of Zapateiro and said that if anyone made allegations against members of the public force they should go to justice.

Petro’s dual roles as a congressman as well as the head of opposition and a presidential candidate was attacked by President Duque.

“Who is accusing you?” A senator or a candidate? “I resigned from Congress in order to express my views freely and freely as a Candidat and not wear the double hat (…) to gain an office to make a statement, then when the institutions react, make myself appear as the one who is being attacked. That’s not democratic,” the president stated.

Sanchez tried to follow the controversy, however, the president intervened and demanded Sanchez respect the rules.

How did the battle between Petro, Zapateiro begin?

Petro sent this message to his networks on April 20, “While soldiers are being murdered by the Gulf Clan, some of generals are on the clan’s payroll. Drug traffickers are those who make it appear as if the clan’s leaders are infiltrated,” the presidential candidate wrote.

The following Friday, Zapateiro replied similarly. “Senator,” Zapateiro made the same comment in the same manner: “Senator,” don’t take advantage of your power of investiture (parliamentary immunity) to attempt to politicize the deaths of our soldiers. Instead, https://timm-carr.technetbloggers.de/lights-and-shadows-by-gustavo-petro-winner-of-the-historic-pact-1653536323 must fulfill your citizen responsibility of making a substantiated complain to the Prosecutor of the information you mention, whoever you are.”
