President denies giving green light to senators

President Mejia let fly another colourful expression yesterday. In reference to a comment by PLD politician Alejandrina German that the PRD did not respect the decisions of its own leaders, the President referred to German, the former secretary of the Presidency, as “old bad luck bringer.” He clarified that he did not give the green light to the senators to introduce new constitutional reforms beyond what the four had already agreed upon. “I have not said anything new for that old bad luck bringer to start talking nonsense.” German had no comment.
