According to this order, the dismissal takes effect on April 26, the day on which the former deputy was dismissed by telephone.

On Thursday, in a communication to the country, the head of state promised that he will be even more attentive and more involved in everyday life to prevent conflict factors that deteriorate institutions and avoid resorting to powers of exceptional exercise.* 100016*
