Fico Gutierrez continues to conquer voters. He has launched a new campaign in Boyaca and a visits to the Virgin of Chiquinquira

Federico Gutierrez as presidential candidate says that votes can only be won in the streets. And more, just 32 days away from the presidential election, which he promises to play an important role and contest with Gustavo Petro, his main rival, the quota for the House of Narino in an eventual second round.

Gutierrez set out early Saturday morning to Boyaca. Boyaca was a religious area which Petro visited on Friday. Formerly, the mayor of Medellin was in the process of running for president of the center-right. He went to Tunja and met with academics, farmers, peasants, and businessmen.

Fico’s primary meeting was held in the Tunja Convention Center. There was a large group of citizens who backed Fico at the polls on May 29, 2009.

Federico posted an Twitter message that included ruana as well as hundreds of colombians who support the candidate for Team for Colombia. Federico expressed his gratitude to Tunja residents and declared that “we’re going to be winners for all of us. We’ll run for president to transform and unify Colombia.” Federico then recorded a bunch of people supporting him and continued to rally.

“Happy in Boyaca! Through closeness, and being the President of the people and achieving a country in order and filled with opportunities, a country where dreams are realized,” he wrote.

The second person in the polls made it to the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Chiquinquira in the course of the trip. The location is where many faithful and followers come from all over the nation every weekend. In , the centr-right’s leader knelt and entrusted himself to the Virgin in the presence of his followers as well as the faithful who were waiting for the morning Eucharist.

“I asked Virgin for wisdom. I asked him to aid me and all the families in Colombia to be humble and peaceful.” He replied.

In that place, the presidential candidate also captured the visit in video. Prior to his entry, he was greeted by a number of people who were from the area. They also gave him a warm hug and wore the uniform of the Colombian municipality.

Gutierrez arrived to the church with the Boyacan ruana (traditional Boyacan ruana) and the medal of the Virgin of Chiquinquira (a symbol of spirituality which he carried throughout his political campaign). The Antioquian had been to Jericho (Antioquia) just three weeks before and gathered with Mother Laura, the sole Colombian saint who was recently made a saint by Pope Francis.

In Chiquinquira. The candidate made time to talk with the people of Chiquinquira and made announcements to anyone who may be curious about visiting the palace of the president. “Key issues in Chiquira are the provision of water to everyone, construction and maintaining roads (especially Ruta des Comuneros & the Ubate–Chiquinquira Section), and tourism to generate jobs and sustainably develop.” Other concerns were also addressed by the head of the paisa.

Fico Gutierrez discussed work, he said that Tunja is the second city with the highest unemployment rate in the country, so in his government plan the goal is to create “about 2 thousand new jobs, including the creation of at minimum 300 new businesses for Boyaca”.

On the other hand, he stated that sustainable mobility should be developed in the department. He shared his belief that the Strategic Public Transport System’s structure should be prioritised to achieve these goals. He indicated together that he would continue to work to construct roads as well as cycling routes.

In his most recent tweet Gutierrez also addressed producers of the potato as well as the field, saying “Peasants of Boyaca: we’ll work to create more opportunities for you and rehabilitate the fields.” Gutierrez continues to reach out to Colombians. He is expected to share his government plan with them and try to stand out in next Sunday’s elections.
