Professor Bejarano warns of dangerous Colombian elections
Bogota, Sep 26 (Prensa Latina) Much-touted Professor Ramiro Bejarano Guzmán claimed on an opinion column published Sunday by El Espectador journal, that upcoming Colombia´s elections will be the most dangerous ones in the country's history.
According to Guzmán, 'there will be no transparency and the Iván Duque administration will revive' the April 19, 1970 elections, when Misael Pastrana Borrero won amid allegations of fraud and General Rojas Pinilla was defeated. Such an irregular election was the cause of the M-19 guerrilla movement awakening and all violence that shook Colombia, including the Nov. 1985 Palace of Justice Holocaust, he recalled.
For Bejarano Guzmán 'there are several signs that corrupt and mafia far-right now in power is not willing to lose it and will do as much as possible to 'win' in its own way, with another puppet.'
In this regard, Guzmán pointed out the 'threat to democracy' from Senate President Juan Diego Gómez, who warned the reform of the police being discussed in Congress will be tailored to the far right.
Police will be reformed to fulfill Juan Diego´s conservative passion, like his co-supporters Ospina Pérez and Laureano Gómez in the 1950s, 'as they orchestrated the Chulavita Law Enforcement', the oppressive regime that, in the name of conservatism, murdered liberals and burned down houses of liberal leaders,' he emphasized.
