Both candidates of the Historical Pact alliance won on Sunday the presidency and vice presidency of Colombia, on a path aimed at putting an end to more than four centuries of political and social exclusion.

Petro and Marquez managed to overcome with more than 11 million votes, for a 50.44 percent, Colombian right-winger Rodolfo Hernandez and Marelen Castillo, who lagged behind in the balloting with 10.5 million votes, for a 47.31 percent.

“The victory of the Historical Pact alliance in runoff represents a step forward on the road to peace and justice that the Colombians deserve,” the national leadership of the Puerto Rican organization stated.

The MINH particularly referred to the historically marginalized sectors in Colombia: workers, peasants, women, the LGBTQ community, Afro-descendants, indigenous people and environmentalists, among others.

The Puerto Rican political group considered that with their actions at the polls in the runoff, the Colombian people rejected those who sought to give continuity to policies designed to favor the privileged sectors, denying the essential rights to the great majorities of the country.
