Colombian president responds to journalist about possible irregularities in financing of presidential campaign

"Colombia's National Electoral Council (CNE, for its Spanish acronym) initiated an investigation into possible irregularities in the financing of the campaign that led Gustavo Petro to the presidency of the country. The Colombian president has used his social media accounts to defend himself from these accusations.

In his last publication on his X account, President Petro launched a strong message to the director of Semana magazine, Vicky Dávila, for a publication made on the morning of Sunday, May 12, in which she detailed the document that allegedly provided evidence of the violation of spending limits and concealment of expenses of his electoral campaign before the CNE.

'Another journalist or politician trying to legitimize the lie,' the President of the Republic began his message."
