Regarding the list of candidates, he stated that at some point it will have to be evaluated. “It seems to me that we are at a critical moment for the definition of Fernando Lugo’s health, the family is very aware of this. I would pray that we can have a public dialogue thinking that the former president can recover. let’s think of a positive outcome that allows the partial or total recovery of Fernando Lugo»
«It must be recognized that the Guasu-Ñemongeta Front is a political and social construction in which there are many leaders, even anonymous, but it is a political force of social action. The Guasu Front is the symbol of the resistance of the popular struggle that will continue to have faces throughout history. It has a great leader like Fernando Lugo but it also includes the struggle and militancy of many people », he remarked.
According to Esperanza Martínez, the Senate will communicate about Lugo’s health situation, who in Colombia has already shown signs of discomfort. “On the day of Gustavo Petro’s assumption of command, we were there from noon to 7:00 p.m. He asked me to go down to a normal area at sea level, he had to participate in a panel but he said that he no longer wanted to, that he wanted to return ».
Senator Esperanza Martínez, a doctor by profession, reported that her colleague underwent surgery for about four hours, during the early hours of the morning. She “was to drain a hematoma and blood that she had cauterized in the vessels. She had an aneurysm, a malformation that is what bled. They left him some catheters for the bleeding.”
