On http://www.larepublica.co/gustavo-petro , Gustavo Petro, the candidate for Gustavo Petro, confirmed the favorable polls that have been indicating for several weeks.
(Position of Candidates to the Historic Pact On Pensions and Inflation).
The victory of the Historic Pact coalition was won by the ex-mayor of Bogota as well as the former senator of Republic. He has officially become the candidate for President of Republic in an ambition he hopes to achieve for the third time.
The high percentage of votes he received during the consultation is the most representative of the Colombian Left, and a reliable potential presidential candidate despite controversial proposals and ideas across multiple fronts, including the economic one.
Petro has stated that he intends to adjust the pension scheme through the creation of the public manager of pension funds. This will allow for a “mixed system” that includes both public and private funds.
He also stated that Colombia is not a pension system, but instead a system that is based on bank profits. This is what many believe would make him the most likely candidate to become the President. Petro recently stated that he wouldn’t eliminate the system, but he would call for reforms to the pension system in order to provide a minimum income for Colombians. Petro also stated that it is not necessary to raise the age of retirement.
(Who comprise the list of contenders to be part of the Historic Pact).
Another controversy about him is that he repeatedly promises that he will end oil extraction once he takes his office. gustavo petro has led to anxiety among investors as well in the market.
Experts estimate that Petro’s plan to stop exploration for oil would cost Colombia about $4.3 billion.
I am also proposing to set up an anti oil front in the region, and around the world. http://www.camara.gov.co/gustavo-petro-urrego would move the economy away from 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) and others.
Petro said he’s talked to Pedro Sanchez, the Prime Minster of Spain regarding his plan.
His position on health has been controversial because he insists on ending EPS and replacing it with a preventive care model that “guarantees individuals’ rights, not the bankers’ profit”.
There were also questions raised about the legitimacy and independence of the Banco de la Republica.
Petro asserts that the Bank’s Board of Directors is part of a political group known as the Democratic Center. Therefore, Petro declares, “What we want” is an independent Bank of the Republic (…). The candidate said that in the middle of an argument.
( caracol.com.co/tag/gustavo_francisco_petro_urrego/a/ has the highest percentage of votes in the presidential election According to Invamer).
The idea of creating cash to fund spending by the government was not without controversy.
http://www.eluniversal.com.co/temas/-/meta/gustavo-petro focus on a sustainable economy that doesn’t depend on fossil fuels.
It is also stated that he will introduce a tax reform plan which would end exemptions, as well as change the concept and definition of minimum wage into an actual income-based wage.
