‘We more centralism’: Federico Gutierrez during his time at
It is crucial to note the importance of Sunday’s election results
The debate started by analyzing Sunday’s election results. “It is my opinion that we’re all in the second round, which is a political reality. But my call was that we can arrive united and win the first round, as a lot of the country is at risk,” said Fico, who also said that he takes the win “with humbleness.”
After the issue was discussed was raised, the possibility of winning the first round was aired, to which the presidential candidate of Team for Colombia pointed out: “The numbers speak for the numbers. Our coalition was the most recent, it has been three months since the last election. We’re only a few minutes away of the Historic Pact. This makes it very clear who our coalition is and if we will have to face popular or authoritarian initiatives like Petro.
Petro faces tough questions
Federico Gutierrez asked Gustavo Petro about Piedad Cordoba’s inclusion on his lists. “How can you say you won’t accept any corrupt person in the list when Piedad Cordoba appears on it and he has been involved in the Chavez regime that poses an imminent threat to Colombia?” Fico expressed his support for Ingrid Betancourt who accused Cordoba “trading as kidnapping”.
Gutierrez has slammed Petro in the past and later called him a friend for the FARC.
“Those who attacked people, those that kidnapped the innocent, killed, extorted are the people who own peace. We are the masters and masters of conflict.” I’ve lived my entire existence using weapons other than the one you. I am morally able, I can talk about peace and will ensure that your allies and friends adhere to the agreements.
Zuluaga and Gutierrez arrive
The second topic Gutierrez addressed was the return of Oscar Ivan Zuluaga to his campaign: “Zuluaga called me to thank me and pledge to his candidacy. I said to him, I thank you for your position personally and that I’ll talk to him. However, I will be able to speak to many other sectors that would like to support our candidacy.” He clarified that he wasn’t Uribe’s candidate but that he would welcome his support.
He said: “Those of us who are in support of democracy and freedoms need to unite. I will meet with teachers, with the cooperative sector. We will present a national agenda to the country and show that we can add”.
Gutierrez In the middle of this topic, reproached Ingrid Betancourt to “whom is saying that one can be the only righteous one” and “that everybody is inherently evil or corrupt.”
She criticized the candidate telling him, “You don’t need to tell that I am a bad person because I haven’t had a single corruption scandal, and I’ve implemented the right thing with my policy.” If I’m elected president and I’m planning to be, I’ll join. They may be left-handed or center, however, I will govern with the best.
Ingrid then made accusations against him for “being assisted” by machines such as Los Char and Dilian Francisca Toro. He stated, “I am an individual with character. He also said that while there are many alliances that he can form but he’s a man of character who will not allow corruption or violence to be part of them.
“Petro plays dumb”
Federico Gutierrez, made a new point in his fight against Gustavo Petro. He said that he’s being accompanied in his quest for dominion and extinction by former senator Armando Bidenetti. In the event that he didn’t receive an answer, he said that the candidate for the Historic Pact “always plays stupid.”
What would health candidates suggest?
The former mayor Medellin came up with the idea of a health system. We want to eliminate the lengthy lines. We will encourage health and wellness, as well as articulation between the IPS/EPS, use of the Siga method, in which triage is performed and determined where you will go to be treated based on your illness.
He stated that better conditions are required for health workers , and that they must have “guaranteed linkage”. He made it clear that he would not eliminate EPS however, he will improve the system of care. He also said that “EPS which isn’t working is liquidated.”
Relations with America
Answer to the question Is it possible to review your relationships with the United States? Gutierrez responded: “I’m going to maintain an open, bipartisan relations with the United States. There are some issues that must be considered. We’ll strengthen an environment where production is accessible, so that the relationship is not just one of business-related, but also political.
UU is the problem with U.S. today. It makes us realize that the world has changed, and there’s an emerging nation that could not only produce more food but could export products of high quality.
Gutierrez utilized the occasion to make a bid for Petro: “The blockades that you Petro directed to shut down roads had an effect on the cost of food items. thebogotapost.com/fico-eyes-colombias-presidency-an-interview-with-pre-candidate-federico-gutierrez/49519/ claimed that people frequently ask why chicken and eggs are so expensive since they were obstructed by roads.
Gutierrez once again stated that Petro “is poised to expropriate”. He pointed out that under his administration the peasants will be able to get cheap loans, irrigation districts, and the ownership of land will be protected.
Questions for candidates
Federico Gutierrez had to respond to the Uribe/Duque government’s position: “It is clear that beginning on August 7, everything that is working, independently of the government and in the absence of government intervention, will continue. If it doesn’t work I will make it better.”
He added that security was essential but also integral, and the security would be a part of the social. Every helicopter that arrives in zones of conflict there are three through the use of social investment.
Gutierrez made a critique of Petro and claimed Petro’s assistance currently through Families in Action is alms. “To the extent the state is a part of the family, it must guarantee him the minimum vitality of water and energy but not to tell Petro to sell his market to the world and leave him in poverty. This is the Chavez model. Look at Venezuela.
Gutierrez proposed, to address the pension issue, “to take the state’s capabilities to the territorial bodies to help strengthen the value of fixed assets such as roads and schools. Gutierrez also said that the 20 billion pesos worth of mafia assets do not fall in the hands of the state.
He said that “that’s why I will make an act that includes more domain-extinction courts and prosecutors, so that this money becomes an asset to healthcare, education and the pensions for the three million adult who have a retirement pension.” He also said that “the resources exist, you just need to find them.”
How do I schedule appointments with Pope Francis while in the campaign?
The debate was focused on visits by presidential candidates Gustavo Petro (and Rodolfo Gutierrez) to Pope Francis. Fico Gutierrez emphasized this in his remarks that “those who are scheduled to meet the Pope are there because they haven’t met the Pope.” I have already met him, but my meeting today is with Colombians I had the pleasure of meeting him in Medellin, during the papal visit, and I listened to him a lot that day.”
Relations with Venezuela
The discussion ended with the subject of Venezuela. Gutierrez pointed this out: “Maduro has had a relationship with Colombia through the FARC. Eln. dissidents. Piedad. Petro. Maduro is a dictatorship cannot be recognized as government. However, there is an actuality at the border.”
He said that traffic on the roads must be allowed due to the issue of trade, which is still being faced by criminal organizations. Maduro is not recognized as an official government, however business decisions must be made in the border area.”
Gutierrez was speaking about the subject, got into another argument with Petro and noted that he is silent to defend “his allies” in reference to Russia, Syria and Venezuela, in addition to others.
He also decried the idea of decoupling Colombia from coal and oil. He said that it shouldn’t be completed in one sitting. “That’s the reason we’re engaged in renewable energy projects like wind and solar. We are taking steps towards this goal, and are planning to double capacity.
Gutierrez gave a goodbye speech: “Petro. I will be the president of Colombians.
