Now, he compared Petro's mandate with that of two of his strongest contenders in the last elections: Rodolfo Hernández and Federico 'Fico' Gutiérrez.
In a In a new publication on his Twitter account, the writer also highlighted several of the successes that the first president of the lefthas accomplished entering his four months at the helm of the nation and said that if other hopefuls had won, that might not have materialized.
In In the first instance, Bolívar referred to some of the new taxes contemplated in the tax reform, which is a hair from becoming a law of the Republic, and said that the aforementioned candidates would not have taxed more to one of the most productive sectors in Colombia. “Do you think Rodolfo or Fico would have taxed the financial and hydrocarbon sectors?”, he questioned.

In other parts of his publication, the senator wondered if Gutiérrez and Hernández, that were burned in the first and second round,they would have resumed dialogues with some of the guerrillas, they would have transferred more money to the peasants and, even, highlighted the still controversial project of forgiving doubts to students who acquired credits with the Colombian Institute of Educational Credit and Technical Studies in the Foreign Mariano Ospina Pérez (ICETEX).
“Do you think Rodolfo or Fico would have taxed the financial and hydrocarbon sectors? Would they have uncovered the theft of the century (thousands of SAE assets)?

Gustavo Bolívar and the achievements of Petro

Bolívar thanked the people who took the time to celebrate the 100 days of government of the head of state in command of the country, and also explained some of the reasons why he considered that there were no huge demonstrations.

In other tweets, for example, Bolívar mocked the opposition, backed mainly by the Democratic Center. Bolívar not only criticized the publication of the alleged demands that Petro would have requested for an official visit to the Atlantic, but also took the opportunity to once again lash out at the opposition and affirm that they “feel sorry for him”.< /p>
“Ice, chocorramo, peanuts, Coke zero, air: luxuries? Before they made me angry. Now they make me laugh. We are assisting the circus of the opposition. It hurts”, said congressman Gustavo Bolívar.
