Colombia: Public reject peace deal to end 52-year civil war
Colombians narrowly vote against peace between the government and Farc
“HATE won” in Colombia on Sunday as the public narrowly rejected a peace deal with the rebel Farc group, dashing hopes of an end to the country’s 52-year civil war.
With 99.94 per cent of the vote counted on Monday, the “No” camp had 50.2 per cent to 49.7 per cent for “Yes” — a difference of 59,000 votes out of 13 million ballots cast.
Supporters of the peace campaign wept as the result came in, while the rejectionists led by former president Alvaro Uribe celebrated.
