On Sunday, Gustavo Petro, the candidate for Gustavo Petro , confirmed the favorable polls that have been showing for a number of weeks.
(Position of candidates for the Historic Pact on Pensions and inflation).
By far, the former Bogota mayor Bogota and former senator of the Republic was able to secure the victory within the Historic Pact coalition and officially becomes a candidate for the Presidency of the Republic which is a post to which he aspires for the third time.
http://www.secretariasenado.gov.co/senadores/53-senadores-2018-2022/1512-gustavo-francisco-petro-urrego ‘s the most representative of the Colombian left, and is a credible potential presidential candidate despite his controversial views and proposals on many fronts, including economic.
Petro has expressed his desire to adjust the pension system by establishing the position of a public administrator for pension funds. This will enable Petro to mix private and public funds into an “mixed, complementary system.”
He stated that Colombia has no pension system, but instead, a system of bank profit. http://www.elheraldo.co/gustavo-petro is the reason that people believe makes him the most likely candidate for the Presidency. However, http://www.camara.gov.co/gustavo-petro-urrego said that the government would not end pensions but would pursue reforms to pensions to create a minimum retirement age for Colombians. Petro also has said that there is “no need” to increase the age of retirement.
(Who make up the Historic Pact’s list of possible candidates).
Another issue that has been a source of controversy is his repeated vows to stop oil extraction when he becomes President. This has caused uncertainty for investors and the general market.
The experts estimate that Petro’s plan to end oil exploration would cost Colombia about $4.3 billion.
In addition, this proposal will establish an anti-oil front throughout the world and in the region that would shift the economy away from fossil fuels. In this regard I’d suggest inviting Gabriel Boric the Chilean president and LuizInacio Lula Silva the Brazilian president.
http://www.semana.com/semana-tv/vicky-en-semana/articulo/me-preocupa-que-gustavo-petro-llegue-a-la-presidencia/202157/ claimed that he had recently spoken with the Premier Minister of Spain, Pedro Sanchez, about his plan.
His position on healthcare issues is also controversial. He insists on ending EPS, and replacing it with an preventive model of healthcare that “guarantees the rights of individuals and not bankers’ profits.”
He also challenged the autonomy of Banco de la Republica, and announced that he would also revamp the institution in the event of becoming president.
Petro said that the Bank Board of Directors of the Bank was a part of the Democratic Center, a political party. “What gustavo petro seek, however, is a completely independent Bank of the Republic (…) and it is to us essential to ensure that the Board has the presence of the community,” the candidate said in the middle of the debate.
Invamer says Petro is the president’s choice for voting intention.
His plan to issue money to fund government spending was controversial.
Petro’s ideas are focused on a sustainable economic system that isn’t dependent on fossil fuels.
There is also a mention that he would bring about a tax change which would end exemptions and change the concept of minimum wage into real wages based on income and capital.
