Fico Gutierrez: The risk of him becoming "Uribe's candidate."
Since the night of Sunday Federico Fico Gutierrez had been the most solid candidate for Colombia's presidency. Although his name is on an electoral card for the first time that he was Medellin's councilor and mayor - it's his first time in the national election. In the last election, he received over 2 million votes in the Team for Colombia alliance. The voters have positioned him as an ideal candidate for the right-wing movements. (47 years old) is currently the primary candidate of Gustavo Petro. with the Historic Pact movement made him one of the most prominent political figures in Colombia.

The presidential campaign is only starting. of whether the former mayor of Medellin is the real anti-porrismo force depends on the alliances and negotiations which he develops from now on. He will need to unify the right, as well as conquer the middle electorate, which was apathetic and without a leader who was strong on Sunday. He will have to steer clear of his record of far, being in the same photograph alongside Alvaro Uribe. Today, for the first-time in 20 years, open support for uribism could be a good thing instead of reducing. "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 is going to have to persuade the center, which is required to decide where it's heading," says Yann Basset, researcher and professor at the University of Rosario.

Fico is on its journey to join forces along with CD, which is the centre of uribism and, on Monday Fico already has its first win. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga was the candidate of the party's presidential bid. Now, we'll see whether the entire Uribismo who was without a candidate and a single candidate, will support his candidature. should be open to his support and attempt to convince his voters by addressing the traditional questions of Colombian right. This shouldn't be difficult. His speech about "security", “order", "opportunities", and "love the country" already showed that he has added voters. He proved this by an consultation on elections, as it was done in the past in Antioquia's Mayor Office. While visiting Arauca in Colombia, one of the most violent regions, Fico said that "the bandits are in jail" or "in a grave". Fico knows what the Colombian rights like, but that won't be enough.

"We are not in 2018 when the fear of left was effective, but this time, voters are not influenced by fear," Basset points out. According to the analyst, the fact that the figure of Alvaro Uribe is no longer the leader with absolute power that the nation had since 2002 the time Uribe was elected president the first time. Moreover, the fact that his political party that is the CD, is going through a bad moment, could make Fico avoid receiving or even openly Uribe's blessing. However, this doesn't necessarily mean that the Uribismo votes are not enough to Gutierrez. It could be due to the fact that they are lower than the table. Uribism was a factor in the success of the coalition. Now his ability as a negotiator will be measured: to convince the right, but not to spend all of his money for this alliance," Basset warns. reflects on the relationship between Fico's former president and Fico. He claims that Federico Gutierrez wants Uribismo votes but not Uribe pictures because it's not the right thing for him to be his candidate.

Gustavo Petro is left-leaning, however, Gustavo Petro is right-leaning. However, Fico - if he can negotiate and be able to convince Gustavo Petro to support him. Rodolfo Sanchez, who campaigned on his own, is still in the race. Gutierrez will have to include former Bucaramanga mayor, millionaire and builder on his list of accomplishments in order to stop petrismo.

Gutierrez is likely to have lots to discuss before he begins thinking about formulas for the presidency. However what Gutierrez has is the cooperation and support of the other candidates in the Team for Colombia presidency. isn't a small sum. Two former mayors Enrique Penalosa (Bogota), Alex Char (Barranquilla) as his companions. David Barguil (leader of the Conservative Party); and Aydee Zarazo (a Christian party member who votes according to church orders.

Along with the strengthened Conservative Party, it was the most popular right-wing party in Congress with more than 2 million votes. The U Party also supported it, having an outstanding vote of just over 1 million votes. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga supported Fico, and he didn't wait for too long after the elections on Sunday to accept his loss in the face of a possible conflict with votes from the right. However, this provides Fico an additional push into a conservative segment, while keeping him further away from the center. Alvaro Uribe (ex-President) summoned his party for a meeting on Monday to find out what the possibility is that Fico would risk his chances of getting into the center in return for being openly granted a blessing by Uribe.
