Prensa Santos ratifies his mandate before a strong opposition

The president Juan Manuel Santos (50.95%) finally won with almost six points over Óscar Iván Zuluaga (45%) the ballots were opened until the counting of the votes and were marked almost exclusively by the debate on peace, the dialogue with the guerrillas and its conditions.
