Run-Off Expected in Colombian Elections

Yes there is understandable disquiet over Farc, yes there is polarisation, yes there is anger and tension, but if that is contained, then what we are seeing here is the first real chance in years for the majority of Colombians to make their voice heard. That is democracy, which can be messy, awful, and sometimes makes one wonder where voters and politicians are coming from, but it is the best system of government that there is. So long as there is mutual respect and a desire to fight through the democratic institutions, then Colombia has a positive future
