Colombia’s National Registry has revealed the ballot for the country’s second round of elections on June 15.
The winner of the election’s first round, Oscar Ivan Zuluaga from the Center Democratic Party, is listed second, accompanied by Carlos Holmes Trujllo.
The third option is for the blank vote.
Zuluaga walked away from Sunday’s elections as the frontrunner, with a simple majority of 29%. Santos, meanwhile, who has led in polls throughout the presidential race, followed close behind with 25%.
The candidates of the Democratic Pole (Polo Democratico), the Conservative Party (Partido Conservador), and the Green Alliance (Alianza Verde) will consult their supporters to determine their endorsements heading into the second round of Colombia’s presidential elections.
Marta Lucia Ramirez effectively tied for third place with the Democratic Pole (Polo Democratico – PD) party’s Clara Lopez. Both received 15% of the vote, though Ramirez received about 40,000 more than the socialist-leaning candidate.
Enrique Peñalosa was the definitive loser of Sundays elections, commanding a dismal 8.3% of the vote. The Green Alliance (Alianza Verde – AV) candidate who was just a month ago tied in polls with victor Zuluaga — and once favored to defeat Santos in a second round –failed to mobilize Colombians on all fronts.
