Since Sunday night Federico Fico Gutierrez , the Colombian presidential candidate has been the most powerful. This isn’t his first time appearing on an electoral card. He was previously councilor and mayor in Medellin. The first time he was tested in national elections in which he got more than two millions votes from the Team for Colombia coalition, was that he was deemed the preferred candidate of conservative movements. Fico (47 years old) is currently the primary opponent to Gustavo Petro. His victory with the Historic Pact movement made him one of the most well-known politicians in Colombia.

The presidential campaign is only beginning , and whether the former mayor of Medellin manages to be the real counterweight to petrismo is contingent on the alliances and negotiations which he will be able to forge from the moment on. will not only have to unite all of the right under his name and name, but also to conquer a part of the electorate of the center, which has been depressed and lacking a strong leadership. He must keep his distance from the previous president Alvaro Urbine, something was not the case in the past. Today, for the first time in the past 20 years, the public support of uribism, instead of adding, can reduce. “Federico Gutierrez faces a dilemma. He must form an alliance with the Democratic Center (CD) – Uribe’s party . But at , he will have to persuade the center that it will have to decide where it is heading,” says Yann Basset an analyst and professor at the University of Rosario.

Fico that is a coalition partner with the CD where uribism is concentrated has made its first conquest on the way to an alliance. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga the former presidential candidate decided to retire, acknowledged the few alternatives available to compete with him and offered his support. We now need to see if the entire Uribismo collective who is without a representation, does the same. Uribe could be seen openly supporting the cause and trying to convince his voters that he supports the Colombian right. Already, his address about “security” as well as “order” and “opportunities” of our country has shown that Uribe is adding votes. He confirmed this with the consultation on elections, as previously in the Antioquia mayor’s office. “The bandits in jail or in graves”” he said recently during a trip to Arauca which is one of the areas that is particularly targeted by violence. Fico understands well the Colombian legal system, but this is not enough.

Basset said that “We’re not in 2018, when the fear generated by the left had worked,” and that the electorate has not been moved by fear this time around. Basset argues that Fico may not be able to get Uribe’s approval because Alvaro Uribe no longer holds the title of absolute leader since 2002, the year that the nation chose him as president. While Uribismo is below the table, it does not necessarily mean that Gutierrez isn’t able to count on the votes of Uribismo. Uribism contributed to the victory of the coalition. The ability of his negotiator will be measured: to convince the right but not to invest everything to build that alliance,” Basset warns. On this relationship between former President Uribe and Fico the analyst Andres Mejia Vergnaud explains “the great difficulty of Federico Gutierrez is that he wants the votes of Uribismo, but without the photo with Uribe as it doesn’t fit him as a candidate”.

On the left, there is only one leader, Gustavo Petro, on the right, there’s an individual who is heading to the presidential race in the event that Fico is able to negotiate, or should he be able to convince him to resign and support him. Rodolfo Hernández, an independent, is still running. Gutierrez must include former Bucaramanga mayor, a millionaire and builder on his list of accomplishments should he wish to end petrismo.

Gutierrez has a lot more to negotiate before even considering names for his presidential formula. But Gutierrez has the support of other candidates for the Team for Colombia leadership. It’s not a small number of people. Two former mayors, Enrique Penalosa in Bogota and Alex Char in Barranquilla, are with him; David Barguil is the leader of the Conservative party. Aydee Lizarazo is a Christian party member who is able to vote according to the instructions of her church’s lectern.

The Conservative Party has been strengthened and has received the most votes from right-wing parties with more than 2 million votes. Additionally the U Party has shown sympathy for the Conservative Party. They also have a strong election, with less than one million votes in the legislative. The support of Oscar Ivan Zuluaga, who has not allowed a lot of time to go by after the elections on Sunday and apologize for his loss in the event of a potential confrontation with the right-wing votes, will give Fico a new push in the conservative wing and swayed Fico from possible votes from the middle. The declaration of Alvaro Uribe, the former President, who summoned his party to meet on Tuesday, will decide if Fico is willing to sacrifice his chances in the center to openly proclaim himself to be the blessed Uribe.


Federico Gutierrez was the winner of the Team for Colombia Consultation.

The election results on Sunday are important.

The debate started by examining Sunday’s results in the election. “It seems like we have one hand in the second round. This is a political fact. Fico said he was hopeful that the team will unite to win the opening round. “A significant portion of the nation’s fate is on the line.”

Following the issue there was speculation about having a chance of winning the initial round. Team for Colombia’s presidential candidate pointed out that the figures speak for the numbers. Our coalition was among the newest, it has been three months since it was formed. We’re still a few seconds of the Historic Pact. This makes it crystal clear who our coalition is and if we will have to face the authoritarian or populist projects such as Petro.

There are to Petro

Federico Gutierrez asked Gustavo Petro about Piedad Cordoba’s inclusion on his lists. “How can you say that you don’t accept any person who is corrupt in the list, when Piedad Cordoba has worked with so many kidnapped people and was a part of the Chavez government, which poses dangerous to Colombia?” Fico noted that Cordoba was “trading with kidnapping” and was in support of Ingrid Betancourt.

Gutierrez then criticized Petro and said he was “friend of FARC”.

“Those who killed people, those that kidnapped, extorted, murdered, are the ones who have peace. We are the masters and masters in the war.” In my own life, I’ve wielded a weapon, unlike you, I have moral authority to talk about peace, and I will abide by the agreements and I will ensure that the FARC along with your allies , and your friends adhere to the agreement, as they are not fulfilling the peace accord.”

Zuluaga’s arrival to the Gutierrez Campaign

Gutierrez then discussed Oscar Ivan Zuluaga arriving to his campaign. I assured me that I am grateful for the personal position. I’d like to talk to him. He stated that he didn’t support Uribe however he will still admit his support.

He added: “Those who are committed to freedoms and democracy should be united.” I will be meeting with teachers. Together with the cooperative, we will display a nation’s agenda to the nation and show that we have more we can do.

Gutierrez in the middle of this discussion she rebuked Ingrid Betancourt to “whom is suggesting that there is the only good one” and “that everybody is corrupt or evil.”

She said, “You don’t have have to convince us that I have poor intentions,” as well as, “Is there really any single good thing in Central America?” If I’m elected president, which I will be, I will unite. I’m not sure if they are from the left or the right, I’m going to be governing with the best.”

Ingrid was later accused of Ingrid of “being in support of machineries such as Los Char or Dilian Francisca Toro”. “I am a person with character. He claimed that although he was open to making many alliances with people He had the strength of character to stop violent acts and corrupt practices.

“Petro is dumb”

Federico Gutierrez made a new claim regarding Gustavo Petro. He stated that he was joined by Armando Benedetto, an ex-senator and is part of a process to end dominion. In the event that he didn’t get any response, he said that the candidate under the Historic Pact “always plays dumb.”

What suggestions would health experts make?

The mayor who was the former mayor of Medellin presented his concept of a health system for the country: “Ideology should not prevail and we should have respect in the health system. We will end the wait times, we’re planning to implement prevention and promotion of health, and articulation with the IPS and EPS Implement the Siga model, in which the triage is carried out and then it is determined how you will be treated according to your illness “.

He said it’s important to offer the health workers better conditions and “that they are protected by linking” and made it clear that he is not going to end EPS however, he will strengthen the system to provide medical care. But, he also stated that “EPS that does not work is dissolved.”

Relations with the United States

In response to the question: Would you reconsider relations with the United States. Gutierrez responded: “I’m going to maintain an open bilateral relations with the United States. Some issues must be rethought. We’ll be able to build the system of production within the country, in order to make the relationship not just one of commercial, but also political”

UU is what can make the U.S. so problematic today. It forces us understand that things are changing and that they have a nation that is able to produce more food, but could export good quality goods abroad.

Gutierrez utilized this opportunity to offer a second bid to Petro. “The blocks that you Petro directed to close the roads affected food prices. Many people wonder what is the reason chicken and eggs are so expensive. Gutierrez said that it is because the roads were shut down.

Gutierrez repeatedly insisted that Petro “is going to expropriate” and emphasized that, under his government the government will provide loans at a low cost granted to farmers, irrigation districts will be strengthened and the rights of landownership will be protected.

Questions from candidates to candidates

Federico Gutierrez was the one to explain his position in front of the Uribe/Duque government. He declared: “I am certain that starting August 7, everything that works, independently from the state,” he said.

He also said that the concept of security was essential but integral and that he’d mix it with social investment. Three helicopters will arrive with social investment if the military is required to enter the conflict zone.

Gutierrez offered a criticism of Petro and stated Petro’s assistance currently through Families in Action is alms. “To the extent that the state supports the family, it must guarantee him the minimum vitality of water and energy but not tell the family to sacrifice their market for life and leave him in poverty. That’s the Chavez model. Take a look at Venezuela.”

Pension debate

Gutierrez suggested that in order to improve the situation of pensioners to improve pensions, the “state’s capabilities be transferred to the territories to boost the amount of money invested in fixed assets like roads and schools. Gutierrez claimed that there was 20 billion pesos worth mafia properties, which are not subject to the control of the state.

He stated that he will make a law that would allow the appointment of more domain-extinction judges and prosecutor to ensure that the money can be used to support education, health, and pensions for three million with pensions.

The Pope was present in Medellin at the papal visit.

Relations with Venezuela

The final issue was the Venezuelan relationship. Gutierrez said that Maduro’s relations with Colombia have been through the FARC (the Eln), dissidents, and Petro. Maduro can’t, as I’m sure be recognized by the state as it is an absolute dictatorship. However, it is possible to see a border reality.

He explained that vehicular traffic should not be restricted because of the problem of trade, which is happening as a result of criminal groups that run an illegal economy. Maduro cannot be considered to be a government. However, companies must decide in the border area.

Gutierrez, when talking about the matter, was involved in another argument with Petro, noting that he’s mute to defend “his allies,” in reference to Russia, Syria and Venezuela, among other countries.

He also attacked the idea of separating Colombia from oil and coal. He also said it is not something that should be done in one go. “That’s why we’re developing renewable energy projects, like wind and solar. We’re working toward this goal, and will soon triple our capacity.

Gutierrez gave a goodbye speech: “Petro. I will become the president of Colombians.
