The Heat: Colombia election

The Heat

In Latin America, it is out with the old, and in with the new.

An anti-incumbency wave has resulted in opposition victories in 14 recent presidential elections in the region.

To discuss:

  • Sergio Guzman is the director of Colombia Risk Analysis.
  • Angelica Duran-Martinez is an associate professor and director of global studies at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
  • Peter Hakim is president emeritus at the Inter-American Dialogue.
  • Gloria La Riva is coordinator of the Cuba and Venezuela Solidarity Committee.
