Auto Draft

Since Sunday night Federico Fico Gutierrez was the most consistent presidential contender for Colombia. It is not his first appearance on an electoral card. He was previously a councilor and mayor in Medellin. His first test in a national elections in which he got more than 2 million votes in the Team for Colombia coalition, was that he was deemed an ideal candidate for conservative groups. Fico (47-year-old Fico), as he’s known is the principal opponent of Gustavo Petro. He was as part of the Historic Pact, one of three people who won the election which determined who would be the three largest political forces.

The presidential election is just starting. How former Mayor Medellin will be able to combat petrismo, forge alliances and negotiate with foreign nations will determine his chances of success. He won’t just be required to bring together the entire right under his name and name, but also to win over a portion of the electorate of the center, who has been depressed and lacking a strong leadership. He will have to steer clear of, as he has so far, being in the same photo with Alvaro Uribe. Today, for only the second time in 20 year that he has been openly endorsed by Uribism rather than adding might reduce. “Federico Gutierrez faces a dilemma. He is required to create an alliance with Uribe’s Democratic Center (CD), however, he must also try convince Uribe’s central.

Fico’s first triumph was announced this week as it was moving towards the alliance with CD, in which uribism is a prime target. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga the former presidential candidate, decided to step aside, recognize the few alternatives available to compete with him and offer his support. The next step is to check if the Uribismo group – which is without an elected representative is doing the same. Uribe is seen clearly supporting the cause and trying to convince his voters that he’s in favor of the Colombian right. The speech he delivered of “security” as well as ‘order’ opportunities’ and ‘love for the country’ have already demonstrated that Uribe is able to add votes. This Sunday, he verified it at the electoral consultation. This was done before while he was in Antioquia as the city’s mayor. While visiting Arauca in Colombia, which is an extremely violent region Fico stated that “the bandits in prison” or “in a grave”. Fico is aware of what Colombian rights are, but that won’t be enough.

Basset states, “We aren’t in 2018 in a time when the fear of the Left performed well.” According to the analyst the fact that the image of Alvaro Uribe is not the leader with absolute power that the country had seen in 2002 the time Uribe was elected president for the first time, and that his party known as the CD which is currently going through a rough patch which could result in Fico avoid receiving, at least openly, Uribe’s approval. But this doesn’t suggest that the Uribismo votes are not enough to Gutierrez. This could be because they are less than the table. “This victory (winning in the coalition) is in part due to Uribism. Basset warns that right now, his negotiation skills are likely to be constrained. “To convince the right, but not to spend everything on the alliance, will be his test.” , analyst, comments on the relationship between Fico and the former president. “The great difficulty to Federico Gutierrez, however, is that he wants Uribismo’s votes but not Uribe’s image because it’s not his style to be his presidential nominee.”

Gustavo Petro (left) is the only leader. Gustavo Petro (right) is still the man looking to win the presidency unless Fico (if negotiates) convinces Fico to let him go and offer him his support. Rodolfo who was an independent candidate remains in the race. Gutierrez will need to include the former Bucaramanga mayor, a millionaire and builder on his list of achievements if he wishes to end the petrismo. has a lot to accomplish before he can even begin thinking about the possible presidential formula names but he has the support of other candidates in the Team for Colombia coalition. It’s not much. The two former mayors, Enrique Penalosa of Bogota and Alex Char of Barranquilla; the leader of the Conservative party David Barguil and Aydee Zarazo, who is a Christian party leader who vote judiciously in accordance with the guidelines of the lectern of his church.

In addition to the more powerful Conservative Party (which won the most votes of right-wing groups for Congress by more than two million votes) Additionally, it has the sympathy and support of the U Party, which had an outstanding vote at the legislative level, with less than a million votes. The backing of Oscar Ivan Zuluaga, who didn’t let a long time pass following the results of Sunday’s elections in order to accept his defeat in the event of a potential confrontation with the votes of the right gives Fico a new push in the conservative wing, but distances Fico from votes that could be cast from the center. Alvaro Uribe from the past was the party’s leader who summoned his party to a gathering Tuesday night, said that Fico might risk the possibility of becoming a centrist leader in exchange for being openly in love with Uribe.
