One more time he President Gustavo Petro spoke about his proposal to convene a National Constituent Assembly that allows making a rrenewal of the 1991 Constitution in the face of the new challenges that exist in the country, including the implementation of the 2016 peace agreement.

However, In a new message, the president threw the ball at the Congress of the republic so that he assumes a ‘historic role’ and is the one who summons it.

The historical role of Congress today is to process your callIf not, the constituent power, sooner or later, will do it. In my opinion, it is up to the constituent power of the people to do so.; It is also under discussion what could be the means to do it: a constituent assembly is only one means of several to express constituent power“said the president.

The president assured that The population must use its constituent power to eradicate violence in the country.

“The Constitutionlike the peace agreement with the FARC, turned into a unilateral declaration of state before humanity, like the incipient first agreement with the ELNwhich even confronts the ELN, andThey all establish a national political agreement to finally define the path out of violence.. A constituted power will never reach a general social forgiveness. “That is just the attribute of constituent power: the power of the people.”

Finallythe president assured that, despite the criticism he has received for saying that the 2016 Peace Agreement empowers him to call a constituent assembly without the need to call elections, he will continue with his approachsince the agreements are not being implemented either.

“Even the attack by Jaramillo and Santos against our proposal, which is combined with that of Uribe, It’s a way of talking about peace. Although my proposals move the waters and sometimes produce storms in a “status quo” that dies in the inertia of privileges, the exclusions and inequalities of the majority of its society, We have managed to get this government to make Colombian society talk about Peace and Democracy. The word has power. Word yes,” he concluded.
