Elections in Colombia

Colombia held presidential elections yesterday. Many saw the elections as a referendum on Alvaro Uribe's first term and he was expected to win by a landslide. Well, it seems that Colombians elected with their head and voted for the best possible candidate: Uribe was reelected with 62.22% of the votes (here). After Uribe's impressive first term, this can only improve Colombia's prospects.

Mora y Leon at Publius Pundit has an excellent roundup of all the blog and other news sources on the event.

Boz has a list of five important points to consider on the wake of Uribe's reelection.

Enjoy. Uribe's reelection is a glimpse of hope for the region.
