Alcocer, who has been active this year around her husband’s campaign, said that the candidate of the Historical Pact, “they have made a media, moral attack.”
In his opinion, the publication of several videos of private meetings of the Historic Pact campaign is a “right-wing” strategy.
“We have been victims of administrative, judicial, economic and media attacks,” he denounced.
“My husband wants change, he wants a full democracy, with a clear division of powers,” he said, and for this reason, he called for a vote for Gustavo Petro on June 19 and “against that right at all, it is worth continuing with their privileges.”
Alcocer has been in the middle of the controversy, due to her mediation in the meeting in which Nany Pardo, Petro’s former communication advisor, was discussed, and how they should fire her without causing a scandal on social networks.
Also, when she called her husband a fool and asked him to be more open to different sectors to attract votes.
