Uruguayan VP Addresses Questions about Educational Credentials

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguayan Vice President Raul Sendic held a press conference to explain his university credentials, which were questioned after he said in an interview that he conducted genetics research but did not graduate.

“I didn’t do it, I never did that,” the 53-year-old Sendic said in response to a question from a reporter from the daily El Observador who asked him if he had completed a four-year or longer degree in human genetics as stated in some of his official resumes.

The Web site of Lista 711, the political sector Sendic is affiliated with in the ruling Broad Front coalition, describes the vice president as having “graduated in human genetics from the University of Havana” and “graduating with a gold medal” for academic achievement.

In the interview, Sendic said he took courses “in preparation to become a researcher” in genetics with the goal of becoming a teacher.

Opposition parties have criticized Sendic and called for his resignation, threatening legal action.

A criminal complaint could be filed with the “understanding that there might be apparently criminal behavior” since “he did not tell the truth,” the Colorado Party said in a statement.
