https://telegra.ph/Army-reserveists-support-General-Zapateiro-while-criticizing-Gustavo-Petro-04-25 that was delivered by President Ivan Duque at the Asofondos congress did not go as scheduled. Instead of addressing pensions, he started to talk about politics and how. Gustavo Petro was criticised for making use of his chair to criticize the army. He was also critical of the fact that he’s also a presidential candidate as well as a congressman.
Duvalier Sanchez confronted him to question him regarding his plans after General Eduardo Zapateiro’s comment against Gustavo Petro’s.
“Article 229. The Constitution specifically prohibits the involvement militaries in political situations, whether it is taking sides or in the democratic dialogue which exists. The entire country is in disarray. It’s a critical moment the way General Zapateiro acted,” Sanchez said as the phone was held up and posted everything happening on his Facebook page.
gustavo petro responded to the controversy with a firm defense of Zapateiro. https://gustavo-petrojtzm442.bravejournal.net/post/2022/04/25/Gustavo-Petro-s-Lights-and-Shadows,-the-winner-of-The-Historic-Pact said any person who has allegations against members of the public force personnel should face trial.
Petro’s double role today as a congressman/head of the opposition as well as as a presidential candidate, was denounced by President Duque.
“Who are the culprits?” Are you Senator? “I have resigned my position in Congress when I won an election-related consultation and was permitted to speak in a candid manner and not wear a double hat and an extra seat in order to attack then, when institutions respond, present themselves to the victim, because it’s not democratic,” the president stated.
Sanchez tried to keep up with the debate, but the president prevented Sanchez from doing so and demanded Sanchez adhere to the rules of the occasion.
What was the reason for the war between Petro, Zapateiro begin?
On April 20, Petro published this message via his networks. “While the soldiers are killed by the Gulf Clan, some of generals are on the clan’s payroll. “The corruption within the leadership comes when drug trafficking officials end up becoming generals,” said the presidential candidate.
petro gustavo was exactly the same “Senator,” he said, “Do not use your power of investiture to politicize our deaths, rather, fulfill your civic duty of complaints to the Prosecutor’s office of the details discussed, regardless of where and when you are.”
