Polo Democratico presidential candidate Gustavo Petro said Thursday that he would form a coalition with the Green Party, if he were to enter a second round in the upcoming Colombian presidential elections.
Petro stressed that he would only invite the Greens to form a coalition if Polo Democratico passed to a second round vote.
Voter polls indicated that support for Petro hovers steadily at 5% and it is unlikely he would reach a second round election.
Colombians will go to the polls May 30 to elect their next president. If none of the candidates wins more than 50% of the vote, the two leading candidates will face off in a second round election.
