Round 1 in Colombia

leave a comment »

The first round is over in Colombia and here is where we are:   

“With 98 percent of the votes counted, conservative 41-year-old Iván Duque nailed down 39 percent of the vote, according to Colombia’s national electoral agency. 
He was followed by the progressive 58-year-old economist and ex-mayor of Bogotá, Gustavo Petro, with 25 percent.”

Duque is in a strong position for round 2 but 36%, or the ones who did not vote for # 1 or # 2,  will now have to choose between the two finalists.   

I am not familiar with the other candidates and who they will endorse.  

Nevertheless, this is now down to Duque and Petro.  The big question is this:   Which one can persuade a majority of Colombians?

Stay tuned.
