    (Position of Candidates to the Historic Pact On Pensions and Inflation).

    The overwhelming turnout at the consultation made him the most representative representative of the Colombian left. He’s an excellent contender for president, despite his controversial suggestions and opinions on a variety of fronts.

    Petro declared his intention to revamp the pension system through the establishment of a public manager of the pension fund. The pension system is expected to be “mixed” and will complement the private fund.

    The candidate has said that in Colombia “we don’t have a pension system, but banks have a profit system,” so many claim that he will eliminate the chances of reaching the Presidency. Petro recently said that he wouldn’t eliminate the system but would advocate for reforms to pensions in order to provide the minimum amount of income to Colombians. http://www.portafolio.co/elecciones-2022/gustavo-petro-ganador-del-pacto-historico-562857 Petro said, however, that it was not necessary to raise the retirement age.

    Another controversial issue is the fact that he repeatedly said that he will stop oil extraction when that he becomes president, which has caused uncertainty among investors as well as the general market.

    http://www.eluniversal.com.co/temas/-/meta/gustavo-petro Experts believe Petro’s plan to Colombia to stop oil exploration would cause an estimated loss of $4.3 billion.

    In addition, this proposal will establish an anti-oil front throughout the globe and across the region that shifts the economy away from fossil fuels. For that I’d suggest inviting Gabriel Boric the Chilean president and LuizInacio Lula Silva the Brazilian president.

    Petro stated that Petro was in conversation with Pedro Sanchez (the Prime Minister of Spain) about his proposal.

    His position regarding health concerns is also controversial. He has been insistent about eliminating EPS and replacing it with a preventive system which “guarantees all rights of individuals and not the financial gains of bankers”.

    He also cast doubt on the independence the Banco de la Republica. He announced that he would implement reforms should he become President.

    Petro said that the Bank Board of Directors belongs to the Democratic Center. Accordingly, the candidate in the middle of a discussion said “What do we need? An independent Bank of the Republic (…) It’s to me crucial that the board of directors is a part of the Society.”

    http://www.pulzo.com/noticias/gustavo-petro According to Invamer, Petro leads the voting intention for the presidential election.

    The idea of releasing money to finance government spending was also controversial.

    Petro’s proposals include an economy that is not dependent on mining and extraction of hydrocarbons, in addition to a more prominent agricultural role.

    He also said that he would pursue an overhaul of the tax system to remove exemptions and change the idea of a minimum wage into a real wage based on income and capital.
