The incumbent has not respected the promises he made at the beginning of its mandate. Thus, he has "reneged on" or "abrogated" the agreements.

Explanation

The political challenger is apparently saying that the “incumbent,” or “current” politician made certain agreements during his first time in office, but didn’t follow through on them. The politician, in other words, “went back on,” or “failed to honor” these agreements: he reneged on them, or abrogated them.

Reneged on and abrogated are correct!
