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.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.
He was followed by the progressive 58-year-old economist and ex-mayor of Bogotá, Gustavo Petro, with 25 percent."
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?
