In this framework, the Colorado pre-candidate and former president of the They codify, Silva pointed out that although “security continues to be a problem,” it is a legacy of the previous Broad Front administration.

“Do not forget that we receive, and it is not going back to the past, it is having awareness, we receive the worst security in history of Uruguay at the hands of the Frente Amplio, with 15 years that encouraged the catastrophe, which generated a catastrophe in terms of security,” he noted in the Arriba Gente program on Channel 10.

“Was there progress on some things? Yes, there was, and it must be recognized. It’s enough? No,” he acknowledged about the coalition’s management in that sense.

“Uruguayans may have better numbers today in terms of crimes, but the numbers are not acceptable. We deserve to live in other conditions, much better,” he said in reference to the recent sayings of the President of the Republic, Luis Lacalle Pouwho expressed that the number of crimes decreased, but that his government “has not been able” to deal with the homicides.
