Candidate Gustavo Petro confirmed on Sunday the favorable vote that polls had been marking for several weeks.
(Positions for those who wish to join the Historic Pact of Pensions and Inclusiveness).
The victory of the Historic Pact coalition was won by the ex-mayor of Bogota and also the former senator of the Republic. He officially became the candidate for President of Republic and is an ambition he hopes to be able to hold for the third time.
The overwhelming majority during the consultation makes to him being the most representative of the figures of the Colombian left and a strong candidate for president, despite his controversial proposals and ideas on several fronts, not least the economic one.
Petro has announced that he intends to adjust the pension scheme by creating an official manager for pension funds. This will allow for a "mixed system" of public and private funds.
The candidate has stated that in Colombia "we do not have pension systems, but banks have a profit system," so many claim that he will end any chance of winning the presidency. Petro has recently said, however, that he wouldn't abolish them, but would seek to reform the pension system in Colombia, in order to achieve the minimum amount of pension for Colombians. Petro further stated that it's not necessary to increase the age of retirement.
(Who are on the list of contenders to be part of the Historic Pact).
Another topic of contention is the fact that he's repeatedly said that he would cease extraction of oil as soon as the day he takes office. This has created anxiety among investors and also among the market as a whole.
Experts estimate that Petro's proposal to stop exploration for oil would cost Colombia about $4.3 billion.
I also propose to create an anti-oil front within the region and around the world. This would move the economy away form fossil fuels. To this I am inviting Gabriel Boric (the new Chilean president) and LuizInacio Lula da Silva (the Brazilian LuizInacio Lula da Silva) as well as other.
Petro stated that he has talked to Pedro Sanchez, the Prime Minster of Spain, about his idea.
gustavo petro on health is also controversial. https://www.larepublica.co/gustavo-petro has demanded the end of EPS and has replaced it with the concept of preventive medical care that "guarantees the rights of individuals not the profits margins of bankers."
He also has questioned the legitimacy of Banco de la Republica.
Petro says that the Bank's Board of Directors is part of a political party called the Democratic Center. Therefore, Petro claims, "What we want" is a true independent Bank of the Republic (...). The candidate made this in the middle of an argument.

The idea was controversial because he proposed issuing money to finance government spending.
