Guerra was an extremely controversial politician, noted for his acid discourse against his opponents - which was criticised as demagogy by his political adversaries. He was forced to quit his position as vice-president after a financial scandal involving his brother Juan Guerra.
On 5 November 2014, Guerra announced that he would be resigning from congress at the end of the parliamentary session in December 2014. At the time of his resignation announcement, he was the longest serving member of congress.
