Presidential candidate Juan Manuel Santos said this Monday that he plans to establish a "grand coalition of Uribe supporters" to ensure electoral victory. On Saturday, Santos had a meeting with Colombian president Álvaro Uribe, who can not run for a third term. According to the former defense minister, both agreed about “the need to guarantee that there will be continuity, so that everything we have built with the president won't be thrown away”. On Friday, the Constitutional Court ruled that Uribe can not run for a second reelection. Without the current president in the campaign trail, Mr. Santos is leading the polls.
