In dialogue with Yamid AmatThe former president also praised the measures taken by the Government on Friday, and said that “they began to fix the situation” because some blockades have already begun to be lifted.
However, he reiterated that the “social problem” still needs to be resolved, so hopes that “the government will advance along a path of authority, on the one hand, and of social solutions on the other”.
“It is urgently needed to process this reform in Congress that allows the Government to provide itself with resources, paid by the wealthiest sectors to pay for this social and youth problem,” he said.
Uribe reiterated that the ruling party did not fully agree with the previous reform, which in turn was the one that originated the national strike, but that has not made him forget that it is still necessary to seek resources to alleviate the situation.
“We believe that one that pays exclusively for the wealthiest sector in the country is urgent“, He insisted, although he did not go into many details when asked how exactly this reform could be:
“This is what the Minister of Finance has been discussing; wealth tax, high rental rates for the highest incomes in the country, “he mentioned.
Likewise, Uribe suggested that it is necessary “for the Government to do more pedagogy”, and left a warning: “Let’s not scare away investment“.
