The President of the Republic, Lenin Moreno, held on, Wednesday, March 7, 2018, a meeting with the members of the National Alliance of Country (AP), in the Palace of Carondelet.
Moreno has told the president of the National Assembly, José Serrano, to “face the consequences” in reference to the audio revealed by Attorney General Carlos Baca.
Moreno also said that the political organization is experiencing difficulties after the revelation of said audio in which Serrano has a telephone conversation with the former Comptroller and fugitive from Justice Carlos Pólit. “You know perfectly what I think from the ethical point of view, with regard to a last event of a dear colleague who has made a mistake.
When you make a mistake you must know how to face the consequences and under no circumstances drag any institution with it. I understand that that is the position of the partner, “said Moreno.
Moreno announced that Serrano has requested to defend himself, and acknowledged that it is a right that assists every human being, and more in this case that it is an authority. “I think it is the right thing to do and then he will make the decision, which I am sure will be a patriotic decision, that does not compromise the institution, the Assembly, and also commits a movement like Alianza País,” Moreno added.
