Uruguay’s Mujica to Step Away from Senate, but Not from Public Life

MONTEVIDEO – Former Uruguayan President Jose Mujica said Thursday that he will resign his Senate seat next April, but does not intend to abandon public life.

Mujica became a senator March 3, two days after he handed over the presidential sash to Tabare Vazquez, his colleague in the leftist Broad Front.

“Next April 1, I will leave the Senate of the Republic,” the 80-year-old politician said during his regular program on M24 radio. “That doesn’t mean I’ll abandon the political path and my commitment, but I think I must take that step to be true to my ideals.”

Before becoming a senator, Mujica said he would seek to be an agent for dialogue and that his post-presidential plans did not include ending up like a “retiree tossed into a corner caressing memories.”

Since leaving the presidency, Mujica has generous with his time to institutions around the world that have invited him to speak.
