Gustavo Petro, a former rebel, narrowly defeated a political outsider millionaire in a runoff election on Sunday.

May the pleasure that today floods the heart of the Homeland alleviate so many sufferings.

Shortly after the results were revealed, outgoing conservative President Ivan Duque praised Petro.

Colombia also elected its first African-American woman to the position of vice president.

Petro received 40% of the vote in the first round, while Hernández received 28%.

The people who do support him have very high hopes

Petro is eager to re-establish diplomatic ties with Venezuela.

His frugal campaign, which he largely ran on TikTok and other social media channels, was a success.
