    Federico Gutierrez the presidential candidate is clear that the votes are being gathered on the streets. There are just 32 days to go before the first presidential round in which he will contest Gustavo Petro, his main opponent for the House of Narino quota in the eventual second round.

    Gutierrez started out early Saturday morning to Boyaca. Boyaca was a religious area which Petro went to on Friday. The former mayor and current candidate for center right arrived in Tunja to meet with businessmen, academics and agricultural farmers as well as peasants.

    Fico held his main meeting at Tunja Convention Center. He was joined by a large group of important citizens who pledged their loyalty to the elections on May 29.

    Federico posted his Twitter clip with ruana along with hundreds of Colombians behind Federico as he proclaimed himself the candidate for the Team for Colombia. Federico said that: “We’re Going to Win. We all, we will run for president to transform and unite Colombia.” This was while he recorded a group who support him in unison.

    “Happy in Boyaca!” Through closeness, and being the President of the people we can build the country that is in order and with possibilities; a nation where dreams are realized,” he wrote.

    On the way, 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 different parts of the country gather every weekend. The leader of the center-right knelt and offered his life to the Virgin Mary in the presence of his followers and faithful who waited for the morning Eucharist.

    “I asked Virgin to give me wisdom. asked him to help me and all families of Colombia for peace and humility.” He responded.

    The presidential candidate was recorded on video at the place. Prior to his entry, he was greeted by several people who were from the sector. They also offered him a hug and were dressed in the official clothes of the Colombian municipality.

    Gutierrez was at the religious temple wearing the traditional Boyacan Ruana, as well as the medal of the Virgin de Chiquinquira on the chest. The gesture of devotion was something he had been performing throughout his campaign. The Antioquian was in Jericho (Antioquia) just three weeks prior and was accompanied by Mother Laura, the sole Colombian saint recently made a saint by Pope Francis.

    In Chiquinquira the candidate used the occasion to meet the locals and advance some announcements in case of arriving at the palace of the president. “Key issues facing Chiquinquira is the provision of drinking water for all its people, construction and maintenance of roads (especially the Ruta de los Comuneros as well as the Ubate-Chiquinquira section) and tourism to generate jobs and sustainably developed development.” Mining and employment were among the other issues discussed by the paisa chief.

    Fico Gutierrez made a statement about the need for work. He stated that Tunja is the second largest city on the list in terms of the unemployment rate. As of his government seeks the creation of “about 22,000 jobs , and 300 or more new companies in Boyaca”.

    He added, however, that sustainable mobility should be developed within the department. To achieve this, he said that the Strategic Public Transport System structure must be given priority. Together, they indicated they would collaborate to construct routes and cycle tracks.

    The most recent post on his Twitter read: “Peasants, farmers of Boyaca: We will work hard to generate more opportunities and earn more money for you and to re-honor our field.” In the meantime, Gutierrez will continue to reach out to the Colombian populace, sharing his plans for the country and hoping to make an impact in the next election on Sunday on May 29.
