Uribe broadcasts brief goodbye

“I apologize to the nation for the mistakes and for the things that couldn’t be done”, said outgoing president Álvaro Uribe during his brief 16 minute goodbye speech, broadcasted on Thursday. He celebrated his administration’s achievements on the 3 major fronts of his presidency: ‘democratic security’, confidence for investment and social cohesion.

After highlighting his staff’s work, he thanked “providence” and “you, my fellow Colombians”, for the opportunity of being president for eight years. Uribe will hand his power over next August 7 to president-elect Juan Manuel Santos.
