Mayorías sin democracia. Desequilibrio de poderes y Estado de derecho en Colombia, 2002-2009(2009)
Presidential re-election is a subject that has been present, with very few interruptions, in the Colombian press since 2004. A lot has been said, discussed and analyzed in favor of, as well as against, re-election during these recent times. The core of this disagreement is in the concept of democracy. While defenders of this constitutional reform place the accent in political majorities and believe that we must adapt the rules of the constitutional game to them, opponents make a distinction between affairs of this political juncture –majority and minority rules- and fundamental long term affairs, pertaining to the Constitution.
