The victory of the Historic Pact coalition was won by the ex-mayor of Bogota and also the former senator of Republic. He was officially the candidate for President of the Republic and is the position he has always wanted to achieve for the third consecutive time.
He is the most authentic persona in the Colombian left, and is a credible candidate for president, despite his controversial ideas and proposals on many fronts, including economic.
Petro declared his intention to change the pension system by establishing a public administrator for pension funds. This will allow Petro to blend the public and private funds to create an "mixed complementar system."
The candidate said that Colombia doesn't have a retirement system, but rather a system that makes bank profits. Many believe this will prevent him from becoming President. However, Petro recently said that he would not eliminate them but would seek pension reform to achieve a minimum pension for Colombians. Petro also said that it is not necessary to increase the age of retirement.
