Since the election on Sunday night Federico Fico Gutierrez , the Colombian presidential candidate, has been the strongest. It’s not the first time his name is on an election ballot. In fact, he was the councilor and mayor of Medellin. It was his first national election. The Team for Colombia coalition won more than two million votes. believe he could be a candidate from the conservative movement. Fico (47-year-old Fico), as he’s referred to as, is the primary opposition to Gustavo Petro. He was, with the Historic Pact, one of three people who won the election that determined who would represent the three most powerful political forces.

The campaign for president is only beginning. The question of whether the former mayor of Medellin will be a true anti-porrismo force depends on the alliances and agreements he makes from now on. He’ll need to unite the right, and also conquer the center electorate, which was apathetic and without a strong leader on Sunday. To achieve this, he has to remain adamant, just the way he has been with AlvaroUribe, in the same image. Today, for only the second time in 20 years that he has been openly endorsed by Uribism instead of adding could reduce. “Federico Gutierrez faces a dilemma. He is required to create an alliance with Uribe’s Democratic Center (CD), but he also has to convince Uribe’s centre.

In the process of forming an alliance with the CD, where uribism is a major issue, this Monday Fico has already achieved its first conquest. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga the former president-elect, chose to retire, acknowledged the few alternatives available to compete with him and offer his support. We now need to wait and see if the Uribismo group, which has been left without a representative, does the same. Particularly in the event that Uribe gives his support openly and try to convince his voters with the traditional concerns of the Colombian right, something that should not be a problem for Uribe. Already, his speech about “security”, order”, opportunities and love of the country showed Uribe is gaining votes. He verified it this Sunday with the electoral consultation the same way he had done before when he worked in the office of the mayor in the capital of Antioquia in which he was popularly known as the sheriff of Medellin. He claimed, “The bandits were either dead or in prison,” while he was traveling to Arauca which is a region that is particularly vulnerable to violence. Fico is conscious of the Colombian right’s preferred positions however that won’t suffice for him.

Basset states that we are not in the year 2018 when fear of a Left was effective. “This time, the electorate does not feel scared.” Analysts say that Fico may not receive Uribe’s approval due to the fact that Alvaro Uribe has been stripped of his absolute leadership role from 2002, when the president was elected. Although Uribismo is below the table, it does not necessarily mean that Gutierrez can’t count on the votes of Uribismo. Uribism helped in the win in the coalition. of his negotiator is measured by his ability to convince the right but not to spend everything to build that alliance,” Basset warns. Andres Mejia Vergnaud who is an analyst, discusses the relationship between Fico and the former president. “The biggest problem for Federico Gutierrez, however, is that he would like Uribismo’s vote however, he doesn’t want Uribe’s picture because it’s not his style to be his nominee.”

Gustavo Petro, the leader of the left, is the only person that can be a leader, but Gustavo Petro, the leader of the right, is still heading for the presidency. In the event that Fico — in the event that it is possible, convinces him to stay aside and support his. Rodolfo, who ran independently and is still in the race. Gutierrez must include the former Bucaramanga mayor, a millionaire and builder on his list of accomplishments if he wishes to end the petrismo.

Gutierrez has a lot more to negotiate before even considering names for his presidential formula. However Gutierrez does have the support of the other candidates for the Team for Colombia leadership. It’s not an insignificant amount. There are by his side two former mayors, Enrique Penalosa (Bogota) and Alex Char (Barranquilla); the leader of the Conservative party, David Barguil, and an individual woman, Aydee Lizarazo. They are members of the Christian party, who usually makes judicious decisions based on the instructions from the lectern in his church.

Alongside strengthened Conservative Party, it was the most popular right-wing group in Congress with more than 2 million votes. The U Party also supported it, having an outstanding vote of just over one million votes. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga was there to support Fico. He didn’t leave Sunday’s elections without taking the time to pretend his defeat and avoid a confrontation for the votes of the right. This provides Fico an edge in a specific area of conservatism. However, it also keeps him away from potential votes from the centre. What former President Alvaro Uribe says, who summoned his party to a meeting on Tuesday and will be the final factor to determine whether Fico risks his chances to be a center-right candidate by being the blessing of Uribe.
