Cobos ratifies he will not resign if he takes part in presidential primaries
Vice-President Julio Cobos ratified he will not resign to his post if he decides to “participate” in the open presidential primaries scheduled for August.
“I believe that the best thing to do is to request a leave of absence, but I won’t quit,” Cobos assured after heading a rally to commemorate the International Women’s Day at the Upper House of Congress.
“I will not tender my resignation,” the Vice-President insisted and rejected the statement given by Lawmaker Daniel Katz in which he assured that Cobos was going to “leave his post.”
Katz had said that “Cobos will leave the vice-presidency 60 days before the elections in order to campaign.”
The vice-president also questioned the Radical Party’s decision to move the primary elections to an earlier date, saying that “the logic is to go to open primaries at the same time all other parties do it because it’s what the law says. But it was the party’s decision.”
