A communication problem found President Iván Duque and the members of his party (the Democratic Center) during a meeting that the president held this afternoon, at the Casa de Nariño, with his parliamentary parcel.
Duke and the 51 senators and representatives of his party, commanded by the president Alvaro Uribe, met in the Palace to review their relationships, fulfilled the first three months of government.
The communication problem seems to be affecting many areas. On the one hand, the congressmen feel that the government's achievements in these first months are not being met in a certain way.
Others believe that ministers should improve their communication with the legislators to coordinate tasks.
"The key was about improving the communication of what was achieved by this government," said the representative Edward Rodriguez, in the way of balance of the palaciega summit. "We work a lot about the communication issue because we believe that the advances of these 100 days have not been communicated in the correct way, "said Samuel Hoyos.
Although at first it was said that it was a routine meeting, the meeting coincided with one of the most critical moments for President Duque since he took over the mandate, not only fell vertically in the opinion polls, but its main bill sent to Congress (the tax reform), indispensable to secure the finances of the State, faces serious stumbling blocks.
The uribists themselves who led the opposition to Duque's initial project on financing the State were. After his party announced that he would not vote the VAT to the family basket, the other political organizations joined this decision until collapsing the central axis of the project.
Today, the Democratic Center congressmen offered Duque all his support, but there is still no clear formula that allows the government to capture the 14 trillion pesos necessary to balance the budget next year.

Much of the communication between the congressmen and the President turned around the need to establish a viable financing bill. And in that the legislators were compromised.
Several of the assistants at the meeting with the President said that the issue of a possible coalition to support the government was not addressed, but they admit that it is necessary to work in that direction.
In recent days, Uribe has insisted on his Twitter account, in the need to project a coalition that supports the government, because current support is not enough to approve the reforms in Congress.
