The Democratic Center party, led by former president Álvaro Uribe Vélez, has a new leader following the resignation of Nubia Stella Ramírez. Gabriel Vallejo Chujfi, a former representative to the Chamber, will take over on an interim basis as part of the party’s renewal process. The Democratic Center is known for being a vocal opponent of President Gustavo Petro’s government.

Uribe Vélez announced Vallejo’s appointment during a meeting of senators and representatives in Rionegro, Antioquia. Although it is an interim appointment, Vallejo is well-liked among the congressmen and there is a high probability that he will be officially ratified in the position. He is known for maintaining good relations with his former colleagues in Congress and for promoting unity within the party.

Nubia Stella Martínez, who resigned from her position as director of the Democratic Center, expressed the need to fulfill other duties in her life. Vallejo, 57 years old and born in Pereira, has a law degree with a specialization in Tax Legislation and Corporate Governance. He has served in various commissions in Congress and has a background as the youngest president of the board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce of Pereira.

Vallejo’s professional experience includes teaching international law and working as a consultant and advisor to public and private companies. He is also known for his commitment to the purposes of the Democratic Center party.

As the new leader of the Democratic Center, Vallejo will play a key role in the party’s response to the government’s initiatives and reforms. His appointment comes at a crucial time for the party, and his leadership will be closely watched by both supporters and opponents of the Democratic Center. With his background in law and governance, Vallejo is well-positioned to guide the party through this period of change and renewal.
