Presidential candidate Federico Gutierrez is clear that votes are obtained on the streets. Plus, he has just 32 days until the first presidential election in which he is expected to compete against Gustavo Petro for the House of Narino’s contingent.
Gutierrez began his journey early on Saturday morning for Boyaca. Boyaca was a religious area which Petro visited on Friday. The former mayor, who is running for center-right, arrived in Tunja where he met academics and businessmen as well farmers and peasants.
Fico’s primary meeting was held at Tunja Convention Center. There was a large group of people who voted for his candidacy on May 29, 2009.
With ruana, and hundreds of Colombians behind Federico’s candidate on the Team for Colombia, Federico posted a video on Twitter in which he thanked the citizens of Tunja as well as saying: “we’re Going to win and we all go for the presidency to change and unite Colombia,” said the candidate for the presidency, while capturing a group of supporters without stopping.
“Happy at Boyaca!” He added, “Happy in Boysaca!”
On https://devpost.com/ottomcginnis313 , the second polling pointer made it to the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Chiquinquira, an important spot where hundreds of faithful and followers from all over the country meet every weekend. In the midst of all the attention paid to his followers and those waiting to receive the morning Eucharist the leader of centre-right knelt to the Virgin and laid his hand on the Mary’s breast.
“I requested Virgin to help me gain wisdom. I asked for his family, and for all families of Colombia to be at peace and for the most humble,” he said.
The presidential candidate was also captured on video at this location. Prior to entering the region and interacting with the locals, he was greeted by a large number who hugged him. The presidential candidate also donned the representative outfit of the Colombian municipality.
Gutierrez arrived at the temple with the traditional Boyacan and Virgin of Chiquinquira ruanas that he carried on his chest. This was a symbol of his faith that he has shown throughout his campaign for the presidency. A few weeks ago, Antioquian visited Jericho Antioquia and gathered at the birthplace of Mother Laura, who has been canonized by Pope Francis.
In Chiquinquira the presidential candidate took the opportunity to greet the population and advance some announcements in the event that he arrives at the presidential palace. The leader of the paisa also addressed other important issues such as water security, roads construction and maintenance (especially Ruta de los Comuneros section and the Ubate-Chiquinquira section) and tourism to help create jobs and promote sustainable development.
Fico Gutierrez spoke about work. He stated that Tunja was the second-highest level of unemployment within the nation. This is why the government’s plan is to create “about 2 000 new jobs and the creation of at least 300 businesses for Boyaca”.
He also said that sustainable mobility must be developed within the department. He said that establishing the Strategic Public Transport System was a priority. Together, he indicated that he is committed to the construction of roads and cycling routes.
He also tweeted a message of support to the potato farmers and producers. https://coub.com/fico-gutierrezhewj474 said: “Peasants in Boyaca: We’ll do our best to increase income and possibilities for you and change the shape of the field.” https://www.transtats.bts.gov/exit.asp?url=https://www.instagram.com/ficogutierrez/ is still reaching out to Colombians, sharing his government plan, and aiming to be a strong candidate in the next Sunday’s elections.
