If so, then there is no reason for him to reconsider his order.</p> <p>“Let me tell you this, it’s unlikely that I will reconsider the preventive suspension I ordered,” said Davide.</p> <p>Nelson and Pablo are hoping for a fair judgment from the governor on the motion for reconsideration.</p> <p>“Be fair without looking at partido (political party) because I know you’re a fair person,” said Nelson.
