Gustavo Petro won the Historic Pact with the help of Lights and Shadows

The candidate Gustavo Petro confirmed on Sunday the favoritism that the polls had been highlighting for several weeks.

(Position of Candidates to the Historic Pact On Pensions and Inflation). The victory in the Historic Pact coalition was won by the ex-mayor of Bogota as well as the former senator of Republic. He officially became a candidate for Presidency of Republic and is a position he longs to be able to hold for the third consecutive time.

The huge turnout in the consultation made him the most representative member of the Colombian left. He is also a strong candidate to become president despite his controversial opinions and opinions on a variety of fronts.

Petro has stated that he will alter the pension scheme by creating the public manager of pension funds. This would allow for a "mixed system" that includes both public and private funds.

Gustavo Petro The candidate said that Colombia has no retirement system, instead it's the system is designed to make bank profits. Many believe this would stop his from being President. Petro has recently stated that, while he would not eliminate them however, he will seek to make changes regarding pensions in order to guarantee an age of retirement for Colombians. He said "no is the need" for an increase in the age of retirement.

Another controversial issue is his repeated pledges to stop the extraction of oil when he becomes President. This has created uncertainty for investors and the market overall. Experts believe that Petro's plan of stopping exploration of oil could cost Colombia the equivalent of $4.3 billion in loss.

I am also proposing to set up an anti-oil front within the region, as well as the world. This would move the economy away form fossil fuels. To this I would like to invite Gabriel Boric (the new Chilean president) and LuizInacio Lula da Silva (the Brazilian LuizInacio Lula da Silva), among others.

Petro said he'd talked to Pedro Sanchez, Spain's Prime Minister, in recent times about his proposal.

His position on health concerns has also been controversial. He has been insistent about eliminating EPS and replacing it with a model of prevention that "guarantees all rights of the people and the profit of banksters".

He also has questioned the independence of the Banco de la Republica and declared that he will make a reform in the event of becoming the President.

According to Petro, "the Board of Directors of the Bank is part of a political group, the Democratic Center" and therefore, "what we want is an independent Bank of the Republic (...) it seems to me crucial to ensure that the board has the presence of society," said the candidate, in the middle of an argument.

His plan to issue money in order to finance the government's spending was a source of controversy.

Petro's ideas are focused on a sustainable economic system which doesn't rely on fossil fuels.
