“We believe that a list headed by former President Uribe will achieve 30% or 35% of the representation in the Senate, ” said the ex-Vice President.
The divisive former president, who held office from 2002-2010, has reportedly said that he will tour the country promoting himself and his list of candidates for the Senate and House.
Though ineligible for entering the political arena again as a candidate for president, Uribe has expressed a firm disapproval of the way the Santos administration has steered the country.
When asked whether or not the former president’s efforts to build political gravity in the Senate would be in opposition of Juan Manuel Santos and his administration, Francisco Santos responded, “I think so…I think so. I think this [administration] is broken…but very well, that is politics.”
