Laura Diaz and Ileana Bustillo talk about the October elections in the United States

With greater intensity and frequency every day, Cartagena’s and Bolivar’s media, both traditional and alternative, report on the campaigns being conducted in the run-up to the October 29 elections.

But above all they reveal – we reveal – the movement of countless people who aspire to the first position of the Heroic City.

Some – on paper – with a realistic chance of being victorious. Others – the majority – were posted with the hope that, as in the famous legend of Tomás de Irriarte and as happened with the current mayor in October 2019, the flute would sound.

And to a large extent they do – we do – with three or four candidates for governor of the department.

However, except on rare occasions, nothing has been said about candidacy for Zilla Parishad and Department Assembly.

This is – perhaps – because, as some analysts have explained, in the case of the mayor’s office, public opinion has a higher percentage of incidence.

And in the case of governor – possibly – because although it has always been said that the best chances are those adopted by the most recognized political houses, the number of citizens who vote freely for Bolivar’s first position every day increases more and more.

In the case of public corporations, especially municipal and district councils, voters have more personal motivations. As a general rule, there is a close relationship between the potential voter and the candidate.

The fact is that, although their names are not mentioned in the media as final candidates, the candidacies of Laura Díaz Casas for the Cartagena Council, and Ileana Bustillo Villarreal for the Bolivar Assembly, the support with which they started, political In clicks they are taken for granted.

Laura Díaz, daughter of former mayor Carlos Díaz Redondo and second notary Eudenis Casas Bertel, accepted the challenge to run in the next elections on behalf of the ‘new generation’, after several years of leading social projects and programs in different neighborhoods of the city, Political group founded by his parents in the 80s with a large group of professionals.

On his part, Eliana Bustillo, wife of Pedrito Pereira Caballero, former mayor, former councilor, former representative of Cartagena and former representative of the chamber, will aspire to the Bolivar Duma as a source for Rodrigo’s councilor and candidate. Reyes Pereira. In this case, her time as first lady in the District Social Management Office from September 19, 2018 to December 31, 2019 is said to have sown the ‘worm’ of politics and led her to decide to contest the election. assembly with the full support of her husband and the rest of her family.

Curiously, Laura and Ileana spoke of their political hopes not in Cartagena, where they both live, but in Fremont, Nebraska, in the United States, where they attended the graduation of their sons Carlos Andres Covo Diaz and Tomás Enrique Pereira Bustillo, respectively. managed to celebrate. at the University of the Midlands.

In any case, due to the dangers of politics and bank legislation, the young candidates, even if they are good friends and have similar profiles in terms of the profession of social service, will not be able to support each other in the October elections.

Reason: Ileana will integrate the list into the Assembly of the Conservative Party, and its formula will be, as already said, councilor Rodrigo Reyes, while Laura will be part of a list for the council of a group apart from conservatism and liberals.
