The reason? Again the cross-cutting issue was Metro model for Bogota Which, as Petro insisted, must be underground, while Lopez – which has the same position – said that, in case of being hired and awarded a Elevated system as expected from current management, Will not back down Continue with this project.
Through his Twitter account, Petro showed his annoyance and He denied any kind of support. While a candidacy is not able to protect what Bogotá most can help in the tragedy of its mobility, Powerful underground subway, high capacityAnd no excuse to put in more buses that lead to the unworthy of the citizens, I cannot accompany it.
The trill has reacted to another message released by Lopez that he warned that He won't knock down the "subway" progress, just because my offender has it. He even used the company "Claudia Sin Petro". "I will not repeat what Peñalosa did, which is not responsible for Bogotá.

However, they noted that They will respect the law and signed public contracts, Including the subway, which, if hired, would form a technical and legal commission, which guarantees that the Contract execution has all technical standards And transparency to ensure a good job of mobility.
The dilemma between elevated or underground subway is already evidenced by the former mayor Gustavo Petro, previously He warned that, although work on a programmatic agreement, there were still several issues under discussion, events had rejected the option of a coalition.
"Until there is a programmatic agreement that guarantees that the Security in Bogota go through the inclusion of all youth Public higher education public and those Mobility goes through the high-capacity subway, Colombia's Humana cannot participate in any coalition (…) the substantial push to finance a jump in public higher education coverage and Underground subway are the discussion points"The former president explained his Twitter account."
