The deputy of the Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD), Zulay Rodríguez Lu, confirmed that she would pursue the presidential nomination in that party's primaries. The parliamentarian officially announced her aspirations to take office as the president of the Republic.

Rodríguez highlighted that she is the only middle-class candidate that is running for president. "I'm going to compete against 8 or 9 candidates who really have the economic resources." She also noted that she could "face economic power and the status quo".

A few days ago, the deputy strongly criticized Security Minister Alexis Bethancourt and head of the National Police Omar Pinzón when questioning the effectiveness of security plans in the country. Rodríguez questioned the figures presented by the authority before the National Assembly.

She said she did not believe in the statistics presented by the police exposing a crime drop. "According to the surveys, the main problem is insecurity. Every day citizens fear of being murdered when leaving home," she said.

Appointments in the Supreme Court

The deputy for the Democratic Revolutionary Party, Zulay Rodríguez, assured that members of the Movement of Independents (Movin) will have magistrates in the Supreme Court of Justice.

The members of the Pact for Justice initiate the hearing period to the 10 candidates who could occupy two positions in the Supreme Court magistrates.

Rodriguez says that Movin supported Juan Carlos Varela during his presidential campaign. "Because Movin does not explain to the country that he was born as a satellite campaign group of Varela and that he continues to defend him from the shadows?" Rodríguez wrote in a tweet.

 

"MOVIN is the fifth column of Varela to support his failed administration," he added.
