Colombian congressman and human rights activist, Ivan Cepeda requested Monday that the president of the country’s Polo Democratico party resign, following embarrassing election results.
Cepeda will issue a letter to the National Executive Committee of the Polo Democratico party requesting the resignation of Party President, Jaime Dussan Calderon.
The letter goes on to say “the results at the polls cannot be analyzed coherently without the assumption of political responsibility and self critical behaviour.”
The representative claims that the voters have spoken and the message is clear. Cepeda spoke of the “urgent need for deep reflection and to make a radical renewal of the Polo Democratico Alternativo, its leadership and the political attitude.”
