Leer en español: Galería: Gustavo Petro y Rodolfo Hernández pasan a segunda vuelta de las elecciones en Colombia
After several months of campaigning, Colombia decided who will be the 2 political candidates that will be measured in the second round of the election.
Despite the great support obtained by the candidate of the Pacto Histórico, Gustavo Petro, he was unable to exceed the threshold of 50% of the votes. This is why now, with a simple majority, one of the two candidates who will compete in the second round will occupy the presidency of the South American country.
The elections for the second round of the presidential elections in Colombia will take place on June 19, 2022. The winner will hold the presidency from August 7 of this year until the same date in 2026.
