Even the statements of the congresswoman from the Historical Pact in the interview with Cablenews They went beyond simple re-election: “We believe that President Petro must be in the Government for many more years to achieve some change.”

However, Isabel Zuleta added that it is not the president who is behind the idea, but his activists. “It is not President Petro who is talking about reelection, we are many of the activists. We do want re-election and we say it up front, and we are promoting it (…) How are we going to achieve it? It’s another debate. It’s not him, it’s us, it’s the citizens and we are the Petrists who wanted this political project of change,” said the senator from the Historical Pact.

These words were what caused the former head of state Iván Duque to publish in X that “They saw the donkey’s ears. “They want a constituent for re-election, and united Colombians are not going to allow the Constitution to be trampled.”

Additionally, in his publication he shared a video of an interview of his on Snail Radio in which he spoke regarding the subject. “The fact that a president, before turning two years old, is already talking about re-electing a political project and threatens that, if he is not allowed, he will stay until the people say, well, it is also a constant attack on the constitutional order. . Presidential terms are 4 years; They are so exhaustive in the Constitution,” she commented.

Iván Duque in said dialogue also pointed out that re-election is only applicable through two procedures: through an endorsement mechanism with clear thresholds established in the law, or through a National Constituent Assembly.

To the latter he added that: “What is quite curious is that when re-election was prohibited in 2017, it was established that one of the mechanisms to return to that figure would be through a National Constituent Assembly. It is surprising that now they are talking about the Constituent Assembly every time they can, which shows that they are seeing the sheep over the donkey.”

Apart from Iván Duque, the senator of the Democratic Center, María Fernanda Cabal in her X account also made comments regarding what Zuleta said. “Perpetuating an inept person is unacceptable. Democracy only serves them to achieve power, then they don’t care. This country will not allow those who stole $380,000 million in the UNGRD to continue destroying Colombia,” said Cabal.

On the other hand, Senator Zuleta, after the interview, reaffirmed her proposal to allow Petro’s reelection, arguing that this reflects the feelings of the participants in the celebration of International Workers’ Day.

“I repeat, the idea of ​​re-election is not the President’s but some of us, who interpret a collective feeling that was experienced in the streets on May 1, which was manifested through banners and harangues. Those of us who came out to listen understood the message (sic),” explained the legislator of the Historical Pact.
