Since the night of Sunday, Federico Fico Gutierrez was the most consistent presidential candidate in Colombia. While it’s not the first time that his name is on an electoral document – he has been mayor and councilor of Medellin and his first attempt in a national election, where he achieved more than 2 million votes in the Team for Colombia coalition, they place him as an ideal candidate for conservative movements or those who feel scared by the thought of an open-minded presidency. Fico (47-year old Fico) is the primary opposition to Gustavo Petro. The Historic Pact movement, along with Gustavo Petro, was one the winners of last night’s election which determined who will be the main political forces. for president is only beginning. Whether the ex-mayor of Medellin is the real anti-porrismo force depends on the alliances and negotiation he makes in the coming days. He won’t just be required to bring together the entire right under his name and name, but also to gain the support of a section of the electorate of the middle, which on Sunday was deflated and lacking a strong leadership. He will have to steer clear of the situation he has been in so thus far, appearing photographed alongside Alvaro Uribe. Today, support for uribism has been expressed in a public manner. Now, it is possible to subtract rather than add, which is the first time this has been done in the last 20 years. ” faces a dilemma. He must form an alliance with Uribe’s Democratic Center (CD), but he will also have convince Uribe’s central.

Fico that is a coalition with the CD where uribism is concentrated has made its first triumph on the way to an alliance. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga who was previously the presidential aspirant, stepped aside to acknowledge the few chances he had of competing with him. Now it will be interesting to see if Uribismo’s whole group that is without a representative, follows his example. Uribe is likely to openly support his candidate and convince his voters through his presentation of the issues that make up the Colombian left. This shouldn’t be a problem for Uribe. His remarks of “security” as well as ‘order’ opportunities, and love of the country’ have already demonstrated that Uribe adds votes. This Sunday, he verified this at the election consultation. This was done before when he was in Antioquia as mayor. While on a recent trip to Arauca which has been particularly difficult hit by violence, he stated that the bandits were either in jail or in graves. Fico knows very well what Colombian law likes. However, ‘s not enough for him.

Basset says that we are not in the year 2018 when fear of a left worked well. “This time the people don’t feel scared.” Basset points out that Fico could be denied Uribe’s approval because Alvaro Uribe no longer holds the title of absolute leader since 2002, when the country chose him as president. However, this does not necessarily mean that the Uribismo votes aren’t enough for Gutierrez. It could be due to the fact that they’re lower than table. Uribism was also instrumental in this victory (winning within the coalition). Now his ability as a negotiator will be measured: to convince the right but not to invest everything for this alliance,” Basset warns. Andres Mejia vergnaud, an analyst, discusses the relationship between Fico and former president. “The biggest problem to Federico Gutierrez, however, is that he wants Uribismo’s support but not Uribe’s image because it doesn’t suit him to be his choice.”

Gustavo Petro is left-leaning, however, Gustavo Petro is right-leaning. However, Fico – if he can reach a compromise to persuade Gustavo Petro to support him. , who launched independently, is still in the race. Gutierrez should include the achievements of former Bucaramanga mayor Bucaramanga and billionaire builder Rodolfo Hernandez if he will fight against petrismo.

Gutierrez has a lot to do before he can even think about potential presidential formula names, however, he’s got the backing of other candidates from the Team for Colombia coalition. It’s not just a little. He has by his side two former mayors Enrique Penalosa (Bogota) and Alex Char (Barranquilla); the leader of the Conservative party, David Barguil, and a woman named Aydee Lizarazo. They are members of the Christian party, who usually votes judiciously as ordered from the lectern in his church.

Along with the reformed Conservative Party, it was the most popular right-wing party in Congress with over two million votes. The U Party also supported it with a stunning vote with just more than 1 million votes. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga backed Fico. Zuluaga did not just wait for the results of Sunday to declare his defeat. The announcement of Alvaro Uribe, the former President, who summoned his party for a meeting Tuesday, will establish whether Fico will be willing to give up his chances at the center to be openly the Uribe who is blessed.
