Uribe wins, Gaviria beats the Liberals

Interesting developments in Colombia. I was disappointed that Uribe won in the first round. I really thought the left had a chance, but it seems that even if there was fraud, Uribe would have won. Still, that Carlos Gaviria’s party won second place could mean that the two-party lock on politics in the county is loosening.

I will be returning to these matters in the coming weeks, but I am on the road for a little while.
