Polo Democratico leader Carlos Gaviria and his Liberal Party
counterpart Cesar Gaviria will explore the idea of their parties banding together to present one presidential candidate. They would do so in the hope that by combining their constituency they can defeat Uribe at the polls.
Although Carlos Gaviria has said numerous times that he is opposed to the idea, El Espectador believes that faced with the alternative of another term under Uribe, he may change his mind.
Polo Democratico member and former Bogota mayor Lucho Garzón told El Espectador he thought the meeting between the two Gavirias was “a step in the right direction”.
