Colombia President Álvaro Uribe said Tuesday he is trying to “convince
his soul” not to run for a third term in 2010, but is still in doubt,
after the Head of State received a phone call from former U.S.
President Jimmy Carter.
According to Caracol Radio, Uribe discussed his possible re-election with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, who had called him and asked about his 2010 plans. Uribe said he told Carter he is “having a personal dilemma” about the issue and asked Carter to visit Colombia, so the former Head of State could give him some advise.
“I am not convinced of my own re-election,” Uribe told Carter in a conversation that lasted approximately ten minutes.
