The right would choose a single candidate for the governor of Antioquia

This is the plan to close the way to the left and ensure that the right remains with the departmental administration.

It recently emerged that pre-candidates for governor of Antioquia, who are part of the right, would have agreed to choose a single candidate in order to close the possibilities for the left in the department.

It should be remembered that regional elections will take place in October 2023, in which Colombians will elect their mayors and governors, among other important positions.

In order to have control of Antioquia, one of the departments historically ruled by the right, this sector would unite, excluding the candidacy of at least three candidates.

Recall that on the right, there are at least four pre-candidates who want to become governor of Antioquia: Juan Diego Gomez, the Conservative Party; Eugene Prietowho belonged to liberalism; Andrés Julian Rendon; there Mauricio Tobonas an independent candidate.

Apparently, in the last hours these characters, who have an important weight in the region, met to reach this agreement.

Although Antioquia has always been a department that leans to the right, the candidates do not want to give sectors linked to the President of the Republic, Gustavo Petro, the opportunity to access the office of governor.

At the meeting convened “Conclave for the Defense of Antioquia”not only the gubernatorial candidates participated, but also members of Congress, councilors, among other important figures from the political scene of Antioquia.

The participants concluded that they will support the candidate finally selected and will promote it with the sole aim of keeping the cabinet of the Governor at the head of the right.

Antioquia has always been a bastion of democracy and today our commitment as Colombians is greater. We cannot let Petrism take over our department and it is by joining forces that we can achieve this,” one of those present at the aforementioned meeting told RCN Radio.
