Overwhelming majority in Colombia agrees with court over criminal charges against Uribe

by Adriaan Alsema October 9, 2019

More than 78% of Colombia’s population agrees with the Supreme Court decision to file criminal charges against former President Alvaro Uribe, according to a poll.

The CNC poll that was released on Tuesday is yet another slap in the face for Uribe, his far-right Democratic Center (CD) Party and his protege, President Ivan Duque.

The CD has fiercely opposed the court case and staged protests on Sunday and Tuesday in which they tried to inflate the former president’s support, claiming even that “Uribe is Colombia.”

The “uribistas” couldn’t be more wrong, according to pollster CNC.

Even in Medellin, the stomping ground of the far-right party, the majority of people agree with the court, which on Tuesday formalized fraud and bribery charges against the former president that could put him away for at least six years.
