This may be buried, however it is a HUGE end result that might dramatically change the strategy of america in the direction of Latin America.
Traditionally Colombia’s has been a “trainer’s pet” for america. Colombia is arguably a very powerful ally for america in it is numerous escapades in Latin America. The CIA used connections with the Colombian authorities for years to train missions of espionage and authorities interference with different Latin American nations.
Even numerous Democratic get together politicians in america do not help Petro as a result of it is possible that the political upheaval will end result in the long run of hardline insurance policies in the direction of Venezuela and Cuba.
This end result may be the higher possibility in the long run for the civilian populations as a result of dramatic revenue inequality, though there’s a lot that continues to be to be seen about how this end result results the area for years.
Edit: I ought to point out as this election was basically seen as socialist/borderline-communist management towards moderate-slightly proper leaning authoritarianism/oligarchism management inside Colombia. Many individuals simply selected to not vote for both candidate, however the motive these candidates beat extra reasonable candidates is due to modern points extra institution candidates have both failed to resolve or exacerbated.
