Oscar Ivan Zuluaga Almost Makes It

The opposition leader won quite a number of votes in the elections yet he could not compete against President Juan Manuel Santos. There’s more to the playoff than what appears to be the case right now though. 

The peace talks that were to occur with communist rebels have thus been put into disarray. Whereas Zuluaga has 29% votes, Manuel has 25%. The next faceoff between the two will determine who comes out the victor in the end. 

The war with the Marxist guerillas has been extant since the past half a century. Over 200,000 people have met a bloody death at the hands of nefarious forces thanks to this battle that won’t budge in the direction of peace. 

Zuluaga has accused Santos of kowtowing to the Marxist forces and has promised that was he to enter office he would seek the aid of the US to put an end to these separatists. 

This is in keeping with the traditions of his predecessor and mentor Alvaro. The country’s people are almost unanimously on the side of Zuluaga. They want peace and stability after so many years of discontent. 

Zuluaga has all the conservative Colombians behind him on this one. The fight is one to the finish. Its result will ultimately be determined by the people of Colombia

Many who are on Santos’s side say that Zuluaga is simply a puppet figure who will be cast aside when the real forces of change come out into the open. 

But that end decision does not depend on wishes and dreams only but is dependant upon the actions taken by those desperate to takeover the fate of the country. 

In the final analysis, only the man with the most credibility will win the struggle. The one with the righteous cause will be crowned head of Colombia.
