#COLOMBIA: Runoff For Presidential Election Between Leftist And Populist

[world politics news]

Leftist senator Gustavo Petro and right-wing populist businessman Rodolfo Hernández will face off in Colombia's presidential runoff next month.

The success of the two anti-establishment candidates is a major blow to Colombia's political class, say political observers.

Petro led with just over 40% of the vote late Sunday, while Hernández was in second with about 28%. A candidate needed more than 50% to avoid a runoff.
