President invites the people to back Colombia’s reforms


President invites the people to back Colombia’s reforms

Bogota, Feb 3 (Prensa Latina) The president of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, today invited citizens to join him this February 14 to share and build his government's reform proposals, in areas such as health.

Let health be for all the Colombian people, let health be for Colombia.

From Bolivar Square in Bogota I will speak to Colombia gathered in all the public squares of the country.

‘Change and its reforms have arrived’, Petro expressed through his Twitter profile.

The head of state considers that the changes proposed by his government are initiatives built collectively during the process prior to his election and that also requires more opinions from the population and for this he insists that they speak loud in all public spaces.

Among the reforms included for this year is that of Health, so that this will not be a commodity, but that everyone will have access to this basic service.

In this regard, reactionary sectors question the project and even distort its content and the issue has become the center of controversy in the country.

What is it about our press that seeks at all costs to sabotage the health reform proposed by the government? They bring out unofficial drafts and old papers to try to stop reforms approved by the people in elections and that will be presented to Congress,’ he questioned.

‘So that there is no doubt that what we are going to present to Congress was approved by the people in the elections.

I present to you the government program registered in the registry regarding the health reform’, he stressed in his Twitter account.

The president recently detailed that in this phase of his government they will present to Congress the proposals for health, pension, labor and public service reforms. ‘

Explicitly what we intend, in these coming months, is to get the country out of neoliberalism’, emphasized Petro who insists on giving back rights to all Colombians.
