Colombia’s Green Party candidate Antanas Mockus would defeat former Defense Minister Juan Manuel Santos for the presidency if voting goes to a second round, according to a poll by Centro Nacional de Consultoria.
Mockus would garner 50 percent versus Santos with 44 percent in a runoff on June 20, the poll found. In the first round, on May 30, Santos and Mockus are technically tied with 35 percent and 34 percent respectively, forcing a runoff, according to the poll. A candidate needs more than 50 percent to avoid a second round of voting.READ MORE HERE.
