From an article at El Tiempo about the bills currently before the Colombian congress:
serÃ¡ la oportunidad para definir el mapa polÃtico del 2010, pues en esta reforma se incluyÃ³ un artÃculo que podrÃa permitir la escogencia a travÃ©s de una consulta de un solo candidato presidencial que represente a los cinco partidos uribistas
It is not clear how a “primary” could be established to provide for five distinct parties to select a common presidential candidate (that’s the gist of it, for you non-Spanish readers). However, I did previously suggest that the various parties backing the reelection of President Uribe were going to have to find a way both to differentiate themselves (because they never were and won’t become “un solo partido”), while at the same time jockeying for position to succeed Uribe.
Thanks to Steven Taylor for the tip on this.
