Since the night of Sunday, Federico Fico Gutierrez , the Colombian presidential candidate has been the most powerful. This isn’t the first time that his name appears on an election ballot. In fact, he was both the mayor and councilor of Medellin. This was his first election in the national arena. The Team for Colombia coalition won more than two-million votes. They believe he could be a candidate from the conservative movements. Fico (47-year-old Fico), who is his name, is the main opposition to Gustavo Petro. He was, with the Historic Pact, one of three winners in the election that determined who would represent the three largest political forces.

The presidential election is just beginning , and whether the former mayor of Medellin is able to become the most effective counterweight to the petrismo is contingent on the alliances and talks he forges from this point on. Not only will he be expected to bring together all the right-wing forces under his command, but also must conquer a section of the electorate in the center, which has been slashed on Sunday without any remarkable leadership. To accomplish , he’ll have to ensure that he does not appear in the same picture as Alvaro Umribe. This is what has been his strategy to date. For the first time in the past 20 years, there is an open acceptance of uribism rather than adding, could reduce. “Federico Gutierrez faces a dilemma. He must form an alliance with the Democratic Center (CD), Uribe’s political party. But he must also convince the center which has to make the final decision on where to go,” Yann Basset from the University of Rosario, analyst and professor.

Fico made its first triumph this week on its route to joining the CD. who was at one time a presidential candidate was able to step aside and admit that he has a few opportunities to compete with him. Now we will examine if the whole Uribismo collective – which is without an elected representative follows suit. will be able to openly support his candidate and persuade his voters through his presentation of the issues that make up the Colombian left. This shouldn’t be a problem for him. His remarks of “security” and ‘order opportunities, and love of fatherland’ already showed that Uribe has the ability to increase votes. This Sunday, he verified this at the election consultation. The same thing happened while in Antioquia as the mayor. While on a recent trip to Arauca (an area that has been particularly hit by violence), he stated “The bandits are locked up or in the grave.” Fico is very conscious of the Colombian right’s choices but that doesn’t suffice for Fico.

Basset states, “We aren’t in 2018, when fear of the Left worked well.” Analysts say that Fico may not receive Uribe’s blessing because Alvaro Uribe has been stripped of his leadership position since 2002 when the president was elected. But this doesn’t suggest that the Uribismo votes are insufficient to Gutierrez. It could be due to the fact that they are less than the table. “This victory (winning the coalition) is also due to Uribism. The ability of his negotiator will be evaluated: to convince the right but not to spend everything on the alliance,” Basset warns. Andres Mesjia Vergnaud, an analyst commenting on Fico’s ties with former president Uribe: “The great difficulty of Federico Gutierrez’s wish to get the votes of Uribismo but without the photo of Uribe, because it doesn’t fit him to be his candidate.”

Gustavo Petro is left-leaning, however, Gustavo Petro is right-leaning. However, Fico – if he can negotiate to be able to convince Gustavo Petro to support him. Rodolfo Sanchez, who campaigned on his own, is still in the race. Gutierrez must include the achievements of former Bucaramanga mayor Bucaramanga and billionaire builder, Rodolfo Hernandez, if he will fight against petrismo.

Gutierrez has plenty to discuss before even considering names for his possible presidential formula. However Gutierrez has the support of the other contenders for Team for Colombia leadership. It’s not just a little. He is joined by 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 leader of the party, who make their decisions judiciously, following the directions from the lectern of his church.

The Conservative Party has been strengthened by receiving the biggest vote from right-wing forces with more than 2 million votes. Additionally the U Party has shown sympathy for the Conservative Party. They also received an impressive election, with just over 1 million votes, for the legislative. The backing of Oscar Ivan Zuluaga, who did not let many hours pass following the results of Sunday’s elections and apologize for his loss ahead of a possible battle for the votes of the right will give Fico a new push in a sector of conservatism and swayed him from possible votes from the middle. Alvaro Uribe from the past was the party’s leader who summoned his party for a meeting Tuesday night, stated that Fico could risk his chances of becoming a centrist leader in exchange for being publicly blessed with Uribe.
