'We more centralism': Federico Gutierrez during his time at
The election results on Sunday have immense importance

Fico declared that his goal was to be united and win the first round because so much of the country is at the stake. Fico added that he will take the win with pride.
When the issue was discussed the possibility of winning the first round was debated. Team for Colombia's presidential candidate stated: "The numbers speak for them." Our coalition was the youngest in three months. We're only a few seconds away, one million votes from the Historic Pact. It's very clear who we really are and who we will face in the second round against populist and authoritarian projects such as Petro.
There are some tough questions to Petro
Federico Gutierrez asked Gustavo Petro about Piedad Cordoba's place on his lists. "How can you claim you're not going to put corrupt people on the list if you include Piedad Cordoba? Did he negotiate with the lives of many kidnapped victims, and also was a part of the Chavez Regime, which is dangerous for Colombia?" ", noted https://zonacero.com/politica/fico-gutierrez-llama-la-union-fajardo... and expressed his solidarity with Ingrid Betancourt, who accused Cordoba of "trading in kidnapping".
https://www.instagram.com/ficogutierrez/ launched a scathing criticism of Petro and called him an "friend of the FARC":
"Those who assaulted other people and those who abducted the innocent, who extorted and killed the ones who have the right to peace. We, the masters, of conflict." I've employed weapons in my own life that was different from yours. I have moral authority and have the right to speak about peace. I will force the FARC as well as your allies and friends to comply because they have not complied with their peace agreements.

The next topic that Gutierrez addressed was the return of Oscar Ivan Zuluaga to his campaign: "Zuluaga called me to thank me and pledge to his candidacy. I informed him that I appreciated his personal status. However, I was keen to have a conversation with him.
He stated: "Those who are committed to democracy and freedoms must be united." https://thebogotapost.com/fico-eyes-colombias-presidency-an-intervi... will be meeting with teachers and the cooperative sector. We are going to present a national agenda for the country and showcase what we can accomplish."
http://www.elnuevosiglo.com.co/articulos/12-09-2021-federico-gutier... , in middle of the discussion, criticised Ingrid Betancourt, "who is saying that one is the only good, and that everyone else is corrupt or not."
She criticized the candidate telling him, "You don’t need to me to tell you that I'm a bad guy since I don't have a single corruption scandal and have followed the right thing with my policy." If https://www.elespectador.com/politica/elecciones-colombia-2022/osca... am president, as I am going to be, I will unite. I'm not sure whether they're right-leaning or left-leaning, but I'll govern in the most efficient way possible.
Ingrid was then accused by Ingrid of "being supported machineries like Los Char or Dilian Francisca Toro". "I am a man with character. He said he'd form many alliances, however, he also said that he is able to resist violence and corruption.
"Petro is playing dumb"
Federico Gutierrez, made a new argument against Gustavo Petro. He said that he's aided in his pursuit of dominion extinction by ex-senator Armando Bidenetti. He said that the candidate of the Historic Pact "always plays dumb" when he doesn't receive any reaction.
What are the plans of health-related candidates?
"Ideology should never prevail. We need dignity for health services," said the former mayor of Medellin. We want to eliminate the long lines. We'll promote wellness and prevention, and coordination between the IPS/EPS use of the Siga method, where triage is conducted and determines where you will go to receive treatment based on the severity of your illness.
He also said that it is necessary to give better conditions to health personnel and "that they are protected by linkage" and made it clear that he would not stop EPS however, he plans to enhance the system to offer medical care. He added, however, that "EPS that is not working is dismantled."
Relations with the United States
To the question: Would you reconsider relationships with the United States. Gutierrez said, "I intend to maintain an open and bipartisan relationship with America." But there are certain aspects that require to be reconsidered. We need to strengthen the system in the production sector in the country so that the connection between them is not solely commercial, but also political.
UU is the issue with U.S. today. We all have to accept that the world has changed and the U.S. is now able to produce more food items, but as well import top-quality products from overseas.
Gutierrez utilized this opportunity to offer a second bid for Petro. "The blockades that you Petro placed on roads to shut them down have had an effect on prices for food items. People are asking why the chicken or the egg are so expensive. "You shut down roads" Gutierrez said.
Gutierrez reiterated the notion that Petro "is going to take over" and also stated that affordable loans would be granted to the poor under his administration. He also noted that irrigation districts would be strengthened but land ownership will be protected and Petro will continue to insist that Petro "is going to be a propriate".
Questions for candidates
Federico Gutierrez had to respond to the position of the Uribe/Duque government: "It is clear that beginning on August 7, everything that is working, independently of the government, will continue. And what doesn't work I will work to improve it."
He added that "the notion of security is important but it is integral, and I would combine it with social. If military forces are required to enter a territory where there is conflict, every helicopter will be accompanied by the help of social investments.
Gutierrez wrote a critique about Petro. He said that Petro provided them with the assistance they need through Families in Action. That's the Chavez Model. Let's take a look at Venezuela.
Gutierrez suggested, in order to strengthen the pension system, "to take the state's capabilities to territorial entities to strengthen that money in fixed assets like roads and schools. He also stated that there were 20 million pesos worth of mafia-related assets that can be managed by the government.
He also said: That's the reason we'll need more domain extinct lawyers and judges. This money can then be used to fund education, healthcare, or the pension system that covers three millions of adults with pensions for retirement. He said, "The resources are there. It's just a matter of be aware of where they are."
Appointments with the Pope during the campaign?
The debate focused on the possibility of the visit of the presidential the candidates Gustavo Petro, Rodolfo Gutierrez and Pope Francis. Fico Gutierrez claimed that the reason why people are planning to visit Pope Francis is that they aren't familiar with the pope. Although I am familiar with his name, the appointment I am scheduled for today is with the Colombians. Fico Gutierrez noted that while I know him personally but my visit with him today will be with the Colombians.
Relations with Venezuela
The discussion ended by addressing Venezuela. Gutierrez pointed this out: "Maduro has had a relationship with Colombia through the FARC. Eln. dissidents. Piedad. Petro. I'm of the opinion that Maduro is not recognized as a legitimate government, since it is a dictatorship. However, there is a possibility in the edge."
He also said that motor travel is necessary because of the fact that trade is still taking place, as criminal organizations are keeping an illegal economy. Maduro cannot be recognized as an official government. But, businesses must decide on their own on the border.
Gutierrez, when talking about the issue, had another argument with Petro in which he claimed that he's not willing to defend "his allies," referring to Russia, Syria and Venezuela, in addition to others.
He also criticized the idea of dissociating the Colombian economy from coal and oil and said that it must be a progressive transition and not all at once. "That is the reason renewable energy projects such as solar and wind are being developed. We are moving towards the right direction, and we are planning to increase production by a third.
Gutierrez gave a farewell speech: "Petro, You are Chavez and Maduro however, I am neither Uribe or Duque." "I will be the president of the Colombians."
