    Since the night of Sunday Federico Fico Gutierrez had been the most reliable candidate for Colombia’s presidency. It’s not the first time his name appears on the election ballot. In fact, he was both the councilor and mayor of Medellin. It was his first national vote. http://www.facebook.com/FicoGutierrez for Colombia coalition won more than two-million votes. They believe he could be a candidate for the conservative movements. Fico (47-year-old Fico), as he’s referred to, is the main opposition to Gustavo Petro. He was, with the Historic Pact, one of three people who won the election which determined who would be the three major political forces.

    The presidential campaign just started. Whether Medellin’s former mayor can become the real opposition to petrismo is contingent on the alliances he creates and the negotiations which he engages in. He’ll have to unite the right, and also conquer the center electorate, which was weak and devoid of a strong leader on Sunday. To achieve this, he must continue to avoid, just the way he has been with AlvaroUribe, in the same picture. Today, for only the second time in the last 20 years, the open support of Uribism instead of adding could reduce. “Federico Gutierrez faces a dilemma. He has to 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 an analyst and professor at the University of Rosario.

    Fico is on its way to an alliance, along with CD, which is the centre of uribism as of Monday Fico already has its first victory. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga who was at one time a presidential candidate, stepped aside to admit that he has a few opportunities to compete with him. We’ll find out if all of Uribismo who was left without one, supports the candidate. Uribe could show his support by being transparent and convincing the electorate of traditional questions of the Colombian Right. Already, his address on “security” as well as “order” opportunities, and the love of our country has shown that Uribe is gaining votes. He verified it this Sunday by participating in the election consultation similar to what he did during his time at the office of the mayor in the capital city of Antioquia, where he was known as the sheriff of Medellin. When he was on a recent trip to Arauca which has been particularly hard hit by violence, he stated that the bandits were either locked up or dead. Fico is aware of what Colombian rights are however that’s not enough.

    Basset stated that “We’re not in 2018, when the fear generated by the left worked well,” and that the electorate has not been moved by fear this time. According to Basset, Fico would not be able to get Uribe’s approval even if the Alvaro Uribe number is not the one the country has known since 2002, when Uribe was elected president. Although Uribismo isn’t in the running, it does not mean Gutierrez can’t count on the votes of Uribismo. “This victory [winning in the coalition] is in part due to Uribism. Basset warns that right now, his abilities as a negotiator are going to be restricted. “To convince the right, but to not spend everything on this alliance, will be his measure.” Andres Medjia Vergnaud commented on the relationship between the former president with Fico. “The biggest issue of Federico Gutierrez’s is that he wants Uribismo to support the president, but with Uribe as a model, it doesn’t suit his style.”

    Gustavo Petro, the leader of the left is the only one who can lead, but Gustavo Petro, the leader of the right, is still in the race for the presidency. Unless Fico is able to convince him – should this be possible – convinces him to not step out and join his. Rodolfo Hernandez, who ran independently, is in the race. Gutierrez will need to include the former Bucaramanga mayor, millionaire and builder on his list of accomplishments in order to stop petrismo.

    Gutierrez has plenty to negotiate before even considering names for his possible presidential formula. However Gutierrez does have the support of the other candidates for the Team for Colombia leadership. It’s not just a little. He is joined by two ex-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 in his church.

The U Party also supported it with a stunning vote of just over one million votes. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga backed Fico. Zuluaga didn’t just wait for the results of Sunday to announce his defeat. thebogotapost.com/fico-eyes-colombias-presidency-an-interview-with-pre-candidate-federico-gutierrez/49519/ (ex-President) summoned his party for a meeting on Monday, to see whether Fico is willing to risk his chance of being a center-right candidate in exchange for being publicly granted a blessing by Uribe.
