Colombia combating coronavirus with two presidents

President Ivan Duque (L) and Bogota Mayor Claudia Lopez.

by Adriaan Alsema May 6, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has made Bogota Mayor Claudia Lopez so powerful that Colombia’s President Ivan Duque almost can’t govern without her.

The dynasty politician and the anti-corruption advocate have been forced to jointly combat the pandemic that threatens the country’s future through concessions between the two polar opposites.

Duque is the typical right-wing politician, boasting family values, and owing much of his power largely to the country’s elite and allegedly drug traffickers.

Lopez, on the contrary, is openly lesbian, and has dedicated much of her career unmasking the narcos and organized crime figures that have been corrupting Colombia’s political system that is Duque’s safe zone.
