Carlos Lemoine, the civil engineer and mathematician who is in charge of the Centro Nacional de Consultoría (CNC), He explained to the journalist Yamid Amat, in an interview with EL TIEMPO, part of the survey that this coming Monday will be published in its entirety.


One of the issues that stands out from the conversation is the most negative figure that the country currently has, and it is the handling that the Government has given to security. According to Lemoine, "this criticism is very, very acute in Bogotá, Medellín, Cúcuta, Cartagena, Cali and in Barranquilla, which is one of the political forts, let's say, of the President."


For the engineer, who has a master's and doctorate in Applied Mathematics from the University of Maryland, the case of Medellín in terms of security is also remarkable, since in said city only 12 percent of those surveyed approve of the way President Gustavo Petro has handled security. "And in Bogotá, only 29 percent approve; that is very low," closes the expert.
