In succeeding replies, Apacible seems to refer about the any positions being pertained to in the Constitution. The abogado said that it clearly stated the President and not the “President AND Vice President.”
He said that a better interpretation is to say that the President cannot run for any positions after his term. The abogado stated that equating the Presidency to the Vice Presidency seems problematic.
