In his statements, andThe head of state claimed to have instructed the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of the Interior so that all the necessary guarantees are granted to allow the normal development of the marches, emphasizing the importance of citizens being able to express themselves freely.

«The marches are welcome. I have convened the constituent power and that includes all the popular force. “I have asked the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Defense to provide all the guarantees so that people can mobilize and express themselves with total freedom,” said the president.

These statements arise in a context of criticism of the president for his decision to testify on Friday April 19 as a civic day, a measure that was interpreted by various sectors as an attempt to interfere with the call for the marches. The unusual measure was received with surprise and unleashed a political storm, since it was announced on the eve of the protests against it and under the argument of the crisis in the country’s reservoirs.
