"Wu will continue to work until an extraordinary congress, he has the right to that," Falcinelli said. "The meeting was held in a catastrophic atmosphere, a vote of no confidence was given to the president, we will hold an extraordinary meeting within three months, and we have serious financial problems and other issues," he added.
