Auto Draft

Federico Fico Gutierrez has been the most stable presidential candidate of the Colombian in the last few days, starting on Sunday night. This is not his first time appearing on an electoral card. He was previously a mayor and councilor in Medellin. The first time he was tested in national elections which saw him receive more than 2 millions votes in the Team for Colombia coalition, was that he was deemed the preferred candidate of conservative groups. (47 year aged Medellin) is currently the time, Gustavo Petro’s primary opposition. Gustavo Petro was with the Historic Pact Movement one of the top candidates in the election which determined who were the leaders of the three most powerful political forces were.

The presidential campaign is just beginning and the future of the former mayor in Medellin will hinge on the alliances he creates and the negotiations he enters into. He will have to not just unite the whole right, but also take on only a tiny portion of the center electorate which was shattered on Sunday. He will have to steer clear of his record of far, being in the same photo with Alvaro Uribe. Today, the public’s support for uribsm has been expressed in a public manner. It is now possible to subtract rather than add and this is the first time this has happened in 20-years. “Federico Gutierrez faces a dilemma. He has to form an alliance, Uribe’s side and the Democratic Center. However, the challenge is convincing Uribe as well as the center which is the one to determine its future direction.” , analyst at the University of Rosario.

Fico, which is in coalition with the CD where uribism is the main focus, has had its first triumph on the way to an alliance. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga was the candidate for that party’s presidential run. We’ll check to see if the Uribismo group, which was left without a spokesperson until Monday, offers its support. Uribe is expected to accept his supporters and try to convince his voters by addressing the traditional questions of Colombian right. It shouldn’t be difficult. Already, his speech about “security” as well as “order”, opportunities and love of the country showed Uribe is gaining votes. He confirmed it this Sunday during the consultation on electoral reform similar to what he had done previously in Antioquia’s municipal offices, in which the mayor was also known as the sheriff from Medellin. He said, “The bandits were either in jail or in grave,” while he was traveling to Arauca an area that is particularly prone to violence. Fico understands well the Colombian legal system, but it is not enough.

Basset points out, “We aren’t in 2018, where the fear of the left has worked well,” The analyst claims that Fico may not receive Uribe’s approval due to the fact that Alvaro Uribe has been stripped of his entire leadership role from 2002, when Uribe was elected president. But this does not mean that the votes of Uribismo regardless of whether they are not in the top tier, are not indispensable to Gutierrez like what happened on Sunday or during his first attempt to get into the office of the mayor of Medellin and the city of Medellin, where Uribe was a supporter of him, even more than the candidate of his party. Uribism was also a factor in this win. Basset warns that his capacity to negotiate will be measured. He has to convince the right but not spend all of it on the alliance. Andres Mesjia Vergnaud, an analyst commenting on Fico’s ties with former president Uribe: “The great difficulty of Federico Gutierrez’s desire for the support of Uribismo without the image of Uribe as it does not suit him to become his presidential candidate.”

Gustavo Petro is left-leaning, and Gustavo Petro is right-leaning. However, – if he can reach a compromise and convince Gustavo Petro to support him. Rodolfo Hernandez, who contested the election independently, is in contention. The former mayor of Bucaramanga, a builder and millionaire who has succeeded in positioning himself well in the polls due to his anti-corruption speech in a lighthearted manner and is a candidate Gutierrez must include on his list of accomplishments in order to win the fight to petrismo.

Gutierrez has a lot more to discuss before even thinking about names for his presidential formula. But Gutierrez does have the backing of other candidates for the Team for Colombia leadership. It’s not an insignificant amount. Two ex-mayors, Enrique Penalosa(Bogota), and Alex Char (Barranquilla), are on his side. David Barguil, the leader and the founder of the Conservative party is in the same room with Aydee Zarazo. Aydee Lizarazo from a Christian Party, who often is a spokesman for his church’s rules.

Alongside the strengthened Conservative Party, it was the most popular right-wing group in Congress with over two million votes. The U Party also supported it with a stunning vote of just over a million votes. backed Fico. Zuluaga did not just wait for the results of Sunday to announce his loss. Alvaro Uribe (ex-President) summoned his party for a meeting on Monday to determine whether Fico is willing to risk his chance of getting into the center as a result of being publicly felicitated by Uribe.
