In this sense, this Monday a meeting was agreed between César Gaviria and the head of state to see the points that the former president considered eliminating, but Gaviria did not attend the meeting.
As former President Gaviria told El Tiempo, “they backed down what was agreed upon in the technical roundtables.”
As a result of the above, they are going to present their project in the second half of the year, when the second legislative period begins.
