Colombia’s electoral authority has told the political party of former President Alvaro Uribe it is not allowed to use the former head of state’s face in its logo and thus on the ballots, weekly Semana reported.

The Uribe Democratic Center party recently presented a logo using Colombia’s national colors red, yellow and blue, and Uribe’s face.

However, the National Electoral Council upheld regulations that ban using the faces of candidates in logos, Semana reported.

The weekly quoted the electoral authority as saying that the use of Uribe’s features “would be violating the constitutional precept,” explaining that in Colombia’s democracy “political parties are not made up by a person but a political group with plurality in affiliations and activists.”

Semana did not say whether the party now is allowed to use Colombia’s national colors.

If officially confirmed, Uribe’s party will have to redesign its logo in order to take part in the March congressional election and the May presidential election.

The President formed his political earlier this year to create a political platform he lost after leaving office in August 2010 and falling out with his successor, current President Juan Manuel Santos.
