Colombia has chosen a previous guerrilla warrior Gustavo Petro as president,
Waking him the South American country's most memorable radical head of state.
Petro beat Rodolfo Hernández, a gaff-inclined previous city chairman of Bucaramanga and business tycoon,
With 50.47% of the vote in a spillover political race on Sunday and will get to work in July in the midst of a large group of difficulties,
Not least of which is the extending discontent over imbalance and increasing expenses of living.
Hernández had 47.27%, with practically all polling forms counted,
As indicated by results delivered by political decision specialists.
Petro's political decision denotes a flowing movement for Colombia,
A country that has up until recently never had a radical president,
And follows comparative triumphs for the left in Peru, Chile and Honduras.
