Since the election on Sunday night Federico Fico Gutierrez , the Colombian presidential candidate has been the strongest. Even though it’s not the first time his name appears on an electoral document – in fact, he was a councilor and mayor of Medellin the city he was elected to represent – but his first time during a national vote, where he achieved more than two million votes within the Team for Colombia coalition, they have him listed as an ideal candidate for conservative groups or those who feel scared about the possibility of a leftist president. Fico (47-year-old Fico), who is his name, is the main opposition of Gustavo Petro. was in the Historic Pact, one of three candidates in the race which decided who would represent the three largest political parties.

The presidential campaign is only starting. The question of whether the former mayor of Medellin is the real anti-porrismo force depends on the alliances and negotiations that he will make from now on. He will not only need to bring the entire rights of the right in his banner and name, but also to gain the support of a section of the voters of the middle, which has been depressed and without a remarkable leadership. To do this, he will have to ensure that he does not appear in the same picture as Alvaro Umribe, which has been his strategy to date. Today, for just the second time in 20 year, the open support of Uribism, instead of adding to the picture, could be a negative. ” faces a dilemma. He must form an alliance with the Democratic Center (CD) – Uribe’s party – but at the same time he will have to convince the center, which has to decide where it is going,” says Yann Basset who is an expert and professor at the University of Rosario.

As it moves towards joining forces with the CD in the region in which uribism is concentrated This Monday Fico has already won its first victory. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga (the former presidential candidate) left the stage and admitted the fact that he has no chance of competing with him. expressed his support. Now we will have to see if the entire Uribismo collective who is without a representation, does the same. Uribe will be able to publicly support his candidate and persuade his voters by presenting the classic issues of the Colombian left. This shouldn’t be a problem for him. The speech he delivered about “security”, “order”, “opportunities”, and “love the fatherland” already proved that he is a good addition to voters. Similar to what he said during his time in Antioquia’s mayor’s office He confirmed it in the electoral consultation. When he was on a recent trip to Arauca which has been particularly violently impacted and terrorism, Fico stated that the bandits were either locked up or dead. is very aware of the Colombian right’s choices, but that will not suffice for Fico.

Basset says, “We aren’t in 2018 where the fear of the Left performed well.” Analysts say that Fico could not be granted Uribe’s blessing because Alvaro Uribe has been stripped of his entire leadership role from 2002, when Uribe was elected president. However, this does not suggest that the Uribismo votes aren’t enough for Gutierrez. It could be because they are lower than the table. Uribism also contributed to this victory. Basset warns that Basset’s ability to negotiate is now being assessed. He will have to convince the right but not spend all of it on this 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 but not having the picture of Uribe as it does not make sense for him to be his presidential candidate.”

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. Rodolfo Hernández who was uninvolved, is still in contest. Gutierrez should include on his list of candidates the former mayor Bucaramanga the billionaire builder who managed to do well in the elections due to his message against corruption in a humorous voice.

Gutierrez has plenty to discuss before even considering names for his potential presidential plan, but what he already has is the support of the other candidates competing for leadership in the Team for Colombia coalition. It’s not small. Two former mayors, Enrique Penalosa in Bogota and Alex Char in Barranquilla, are also with him. David Barguil is the leader of Conservative party. Aydee Lizarazo is a Christian party woman who votes according to the instructions of her church’s lectern.

Alongside the strengthened Conservative Party, it was the most popular right-wing group in Congress with more than two million votes. The U Party also supported it with a stunning vote with just more than 1 million votes. The backing of Oscar Ivan Zuluaga, who did not let many hours go by after the elections on Sunday, to assume his defeat before a possible confrontation for the right-wing votes, will give Fico a new push in a sector of conservatism and swayed him from possible votes from the middle. What former president Alvaro Uribe says, who invited his party for a meeting on Tuesday is the most important information needed to decide in the event that Fico is willing to risk his position for a moderate position as a result of being the blessing of Uribe.
