The first (and, almost certainly, only) round of the Colombian presidential election is Sunday. It is a historic election in that it marks the first time that a stitting Colombian president has been eligible to seek a second term. It is likely to be historic in one or perhaps two other respects, as well: The formerly dominant Liberal party is likely to come in third, and the candidate of the left could challenge or break Colombia’s all time record votes percentage for a leftist presidential candidate.
Steven Taylor has a series of recent posts on the candidates and other aspects of the election, inlcuding an image of the ballot, posted at PoliBlog.
