“We have to step away from the political arena and try to continue with the artistic work,” Campos Neto said. “And I think what we did is living proof that everything we did was very technical.”

The Colombian president also mentioned that in 2022, the interest rate reached 13.75%, the highest in an election year, as evidence of independence.

“If this is not proof that you are independent, that you acted independently, it is difficult to find another example like this,” Campos Neto said.
