This Monday President Gabriel Boric arrived as every morning at La Moneda to start a new week. But this time he did it with his partner, Irina Karamanos. Nothing new with that, except that they entered the Government Palace holding hands. And in that way, both received the honors of the presidential guard in charge of Carabineros.
After the protocol greeting, the couple kissed and each left for their offices.
The annoyance did not wait between uniformed circles, those who consider that the protocol was ignored or, of frentón, speak of a lack of respect for the ceremony.
Critics point out that the President of the Republic went out of protocol on a symbol of authority that is very important for the Armed Forces. Because the honors are the recognition of the authority of the President, by the uniformed. These are honors for authority, as such, given its high office.
So if the President is accompanied by a minister, for example, they must go one step further. The same goes for other authorities. And also for your partner.
