Alexandria Cortez confirmed via Twitter that she has been allowed only one minute to speak at the Democratic National Convention (DNC).

Alexandria Cortez confirmed via Twitter that she has been allowed only one minute to speak at the Democratic National Convention (DNC).Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a U.S. Congressional representative from the 14th congressional district of New York. She is among many Democratic leaders scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention (DNC). Cortez will be speaking on August 18, on Day-2 of the convention between 9.00 and 11.00 pm ET. She has been given a one-minute slot to speak at the convention, and she confirmed this on Twitter when she replied to a post with news reporting the same.

According to reports, the DNC will be held virtually due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The convention will play a pre-recorded video statement of Cortez, which she filmed at her home. However, it is unclear whether Cortz is the only speaker to have been allowed just one minute to speak at the convention. The DNC is scheduled to begin on August 17, 2020.
