Fico Gutierrez has the potential of being considered "Uribe’s candidate"
Since the night of Sunday, Federico Fico Gutierrez was the most consistent presidential candidate for Colombia. Although this isn't the first time his name is mentioned on electoral card - he was previously a Medellin mayor and councilor - this was his first attempt at a national election. With more than two millions votes in the Team for Colombia coalition alliance they see him as a desirable candidate for conservative parties and those who fear a leftist presidency. Fico (47 years aged Medellin) is currently this time, Gustavo Petro's primary opponent. Gustavo Petro was with the Historic Pact Movement one of the winning candidates in the election that decided who were the leaders of the three largest political forces.

The campaign for president is just beginning. If the former mayor of Medellin is the real anti-porrismo force depends on the alliances and agreements which he develops in the coming days. He won't just have to bring all right-wingers under his banner, but will also have to conquer a portion of the centrist electorate that appeared to be demoralized and lacking leadership. To achieve this, he'll need to keep from appearing in the same picture as Alvaro Umribe. This is what has been his strategy to date. Today, for just the second time in 20 years it is clear that the support for Uribism instead of adding could subtract. "Federico Gutierrez faces a dilemma. He'll need to create an alliance with the Democratic Center (CD), Uribe's party. But he must also convince the center which has to decide where it goes," Yann Basset from the University of Rosario, analyst and professor.

Fico, which is a coalition partner with the CD in which uribism is the main focus, has had its first conquest in the process of forming an alliance. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga was the candidate for that party's presidential run. The next step is to see if all of Uribismo that was not able to form a single candidate is in support of the candidate. Uribe can demonstrate his support by being open and convincing the electorate of traditional issues that are typical of the Colombian Right. His remarks of "security", "order", "opportunities" and "love of the country" already showed him that he adds votes. As did during his stint in the Antioquia mayor's office He confirmed it in the electoral consultation. While on a recent trip to Arauca (an area which has been particularly impacted by violence), he stated "The bandits are either in prison or in graves." Fico knows very well what Colombian law likes. However, it's not enough for him.

"We aren't in the year 2018, when the fear of left worked well, this time the electorate is not affected by fear," Basset points out. Basset says that Fico might not be able to receive Uribe’s blessing because of the fact that Alvaro Uribe is not the only leader that the country has had since 2002 at the time Uribe was elected president. Although Uribismo is not in the top tier however, that does not necessarily mean Gutierrez isn't able to count on the support of Uribismo. Uribism was also instrumental in this win (winning in the coalition). Basset warns that his negotiation skills are likely to be limited. "To persuade to not invest all his resources in the alliance, will be his goal." Andres Mejia Vergnaud, analyst, comments on the relationship between Fico and the former president. " to Federico Gutierrez, however, is that he wants Uribismo's votes but not Uribe's image since it isn't a good fit to be his presidential nominee."

While on the left there's only one leader, Gustavo Petro, on the right there is still one man that is headed for the presidential election in the event that Fico is able to negotiate, or in the event that he is able to negotiate - convinces him to step aside and offer him support. Rodolfo who ran as an independent, is still in contention. Gutierrez will be able to boast a list of accomplishments that include the former mayor of Bucaramanga who is a builder and millionaire.

Gutierrez will have a lot to talk about before thinking about possible presidential formula names. But the one thing Gutierrez has is the support and cooperation of the other candidates in the Team for Colombia presidency. This isn't a small number. 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 an Christian leader of the party, who are judiciously voting in accordance with the guidelines of the lectern at his church.

Along with the reformed Conservative Party, it was the most popular right-wing force in Congress with over two million votes. The U Party also supported it and had a remarkable turnout of less than a million votes. Oscar Ivan Zuluaga backed Fico. Zuluaga didn't wait for Sunday's results to announce his defeat. Alvaro Uribe (ex-President) summoned his party to a gathering on Monday, to see if Fico might risk his chances of being a center-right candidate as a result of being publicly blessed by Uribe.
