Uruguayan Senator Luc?a Topolansky took office on Wednesday before the General Assembly of the Parliament as her country’s vice president. Wife of the former Uruguayan President Jos? ‘Pepe,’ Luc?a Topolansky was inducted as vice president after Raul Sendic’s resignation on Saturday.
Sendic resigned amid allegations of mismanagement of public funds after the left-wing Broad Front’s Political Conduct Court accused him of lying in his explanations.
Lucia Topolansky said that Sendic’s resignation triggered “a political crisis that is emerging,” but clarified that “it is not an institutional crisis.”
The Congress accepted Sendic’s resignation and appointed Topolansky, who automatically would become vice president of the country, as established in the Uruguayan Constitution.
