Colombia’s ambassador to the UK, Noemi Sanin, announced her
resignation Saturday. The diplomat hopes to become the Conservative
Party’s candidate for the 2010 Presidency.
According to a press release by the ambassador, Sanin met with President Alvaro Uribe to hand in her resignation.
“I reiterated to the president my indeclinable loyalty and admiration for his government. I thanked him for the opportunity he gave me to represent Colombia and his government in Spain and the United Kingdom,” the ambassador wrote.
Sanin was expected to resign for a while already. She now joins other Conservative Party members in the race for the party’s candidacy.
