‘We more centralism’: Federico Gutierrez during his time at
The election results on Sunday are important.
The first subject of the great debate was to discuss the results of the election on Sunday. “It seems to us that we have one leg in the second rounds that is a real political reality. Fico responded, saying that his objective was to prevail unitedly during the initial round. https://fico.gutierrezeedf208.werite.net/post/2022/05/24/Federico-Gutierrez,-the-winner-and-candidate-in-the-Team-for-Colombia-consultation. is due to the fact that a lot of the country stands in danger.
Following the issue there was speculation about the possibility of winning the first round. Team for Colombia’s presidential candidate pointed out that the figures speak for the numbers. Our coalition was only three months of age. We’re just a few seconds away, one million votes from the Historic Pact. It’s very evident who we are and who we can take on in the second round against authoritarian populist initiatives like Petro.
Petro has some tough questions
Federico Gutierrez questioned Gustavo Petro’s decision to include Piedad Cordoba on his lists during the debate. “How do they claim that you aren’t accepting those who are corrupt in the lists, if Piedad Cordoba was in the list, when he was negotiating for the lives of a lot of kidnapped individuals, and when he became a member of the Chavez regime, which is a risk for Colombia?” Fico said that Cordoba was “trading with kidnapping” and he showed his support to Ingrid Betancourt.
Gutierrez Then, he launched an abrasive attack on Petro and said that Petro a “friend” of the FARC.
“Those who attacked others or those who kidnapped the innocent, who extorted and killed the ones who have the right to peace. We, the masters, of war.” In my time, I have used an instrument that was not than you. I have the moral right to speak about peace, and I’ll ensure that the FARC as well as allies and my close friends adhere to the agreements. They have not complied with the terms of the peace accord.
Zuluaga is currently in the Gutierrez camp.
Gutierrez then addressed the next topic: Oscar Ivan Zuluaga’s announcement of his campaign. “Zuluaga called me to thank me and encourage me to support his campaign,” he said. I said, I appreciate your personal choice and I’ll meet with him, but I am going to sit down to talk to many other sectors that want to join our campaign,” he said and clarified that he is not Uribe’s nominee, however he will admit that he is in his.
He said: “Those of us who defend democracy and freedoms have to stand together. I will meet up with teachers. Along with the cooperative sector we will present a national strategy for the country.
Gutierrez as he was discussing the subject while discussing the topic, was criticized by Ingrid Betancourt for “saying that one person is the only good and that all people are corrupt or evil.”
“You don’t have to convince me that I’m not a good person when I don’t get any corrupt scandals and have implemented a well-designed policy,” she said. She also asked the presidential candidate what was the one good thing in Central America? If I am elected president, and I am in the near future, I will join. I’m not sure if they’re left-leaning or right-leaning, however, I’ll be governing with the best of intentions.
He also reacted to the allegations of “being assisted by machines like Los Char and Dilian Francisca Toro”. He stated, “I am an individual with character. He said he’d form many alliances, however, he also said that his character is strong enough to resist corruption and violence.
“Petro is acting silly”
Federico Gutierrez, in an attempt to point out Gustavo Petro, stated that he is accompanied and in the company of Armando Beenedetti, the former senator who started a process to eliminate. If he did not get any response, he declared that the candidate for the Historic Pact “always plays stupid.”
What are the plans of health-related candidates?
“Ideology must not prevail. We need dignity for health care,” said the former mayor Medellin. We’re going to eliminate the wait times, increase prevention and health, as well as articulation with IPS and EPS and introduce the Siga system. This model uses triage to decide where you’ll be treated according the health condition.
He said that better conditions are needed for health workers and that they must have “guaranteed access to”. He clarified that he will not end EPS but he would improve the system of care. He also said that “EPS that is not working is dismantled.”
To the question: Would you consider rethinking your relations with the United States. Gutierrez stated that he would maintain a positive, bipartisan relationship with the United States. Some issues, however, need to be rethought. We will try to create a system that has production across the nation. This will allow for more of a political and commercial relations.
“The problem with the U.S. today is UU. It brings us to the realisation that the world has evolved and that they now have an economy that can supply more food to the masses, but can export good quality products to other countries.
Gutierrez took the opportunity to announce a new bid to Petro: “The blockades, that Petro ordered to close the roads, have had an impact on the price of food items. Many people wonder why chicken and eggs are so expensive. He said it is because the roads were closed.
Gutierrez once again claimed that Petro “is close to expropriating”. He pointed out that under his administration the poor will get low-cost loans, as well as irrigation districts will be able to grow and the ownership of land will be protected.
Questions from candidates to candidates
Federico Gutierrez was then able to clarify his position to Uribe’s and Duque governments: “I am absolutely clear that from August 7th, everything that is working, regardless of the government, is going to remain, and what doesn’t work, I will change it.”
He added, “The concept of security is crucial, but integral as well, and I’d blend them with the social.” Three helicopters will arrive with social investment in the event that the military is required to enter an area of conflict.
Gutierrez has criticized Petro for saying that they should give them the current help via Families in Action. It said that they must make sure that the family has the minimum level of vitality from water, energy and food, but not force him to give up his life and leave him in poverty. That’s the Chavez model and look at Venezuela.”
Gutierrez suggested, to improve the issue of pensions, that the state be in a position to transfer its assets to territorial bodies to aid in strengthening the funds in fixed resources such as schools and roads. Furthermore, there is 20 billion pesos of mafia assets, which are not required to be managed by the state,” he said.
He said that he would create a law to allow the appointment of more domain-extinction judges as well as prosecutor, so that the funds can be used to support education, health, and pensions for three million people who have a pension. He said, “The resources are there. All you have to do is understand where they’re.”
What is the status of meetings with Pope Francis in the course of the election?
The discussion focused on the visits made by the candidates Gustavo Petro (and Rodolfo Gutierrez) to Pope Francis. Fico Gutierrez said that people who plan to visit Pope Francis are not doing it because they don’t know him. Even though I know his name, the appointment I am scheduled for today is with the Colombians. Fico Gutierrez said that even though I am personally acquainted with him however, my appointment with him today will be with the Colombians.
Relations with Venezuela
The last topic of the debate was the relations with Venezuela and Venezuela, which Gutierrez pointed out: “Maduro’s relationship with Colombia has been through the FARC and the Eln dissidents, dissidents Piedad and Petro. Maduro, which is a dictatorship, cannot be recognized as government. It is however possible to envision an actual border.
He explained that vehicular traffic is not a problem because of the problem of trade which is still being triggered by criminal organizations that operate an unregulated economy. Maduro is not acknowledged by the authorities. Business decisions should be taken at or near the border.
Gutierrez was speaking about the matter, was involved in a new clash with Petro in which he claimed that he’s mute to defend “his allies,” referring to Russia, Syria and Venezuela, in addition to other countries.
He also voiced his displeasure with the idea to decouple the Colombian economy from coal and oil. “That is why renewable energy initiatives like solar and wind are in the works. We are making steps toward the goal and will increase the capacity by a third.
Gutierrez as a way to say goodbye in his farewell speech, stated: “Petro. You are Chavez, Maduro, but not Uribe, nor Duque. I will be president of the Colombians.”
