The victory was won by Bogota’s previous senator and mayor of the Republic. This makes him a candidate in the Presidency Of the Republic, an office that he hopes to win for the 3rd time.
The high percentage of votes he received at the consultation is the most representative of the Colombian Left and a solid candidate for the presidency, despite the fact that his ideas and proposals are controversial across multiple fronts, like the one on economics.
Petro has announced that he will alter the pension scheme through the creation of a public manager of pension funds. This will allow for a “mixed system” that includes both public and private funds.
