It’s difficult to ignore the surprising victory of Juan Manual Santos race for the Colombia presidency. We were convinced at the office, that the green party was going to win the second round (even Aljazeera - was thinking the same), However I think Santos can do a good job, and I pray God for.

And these are 7 things you probably didn’t know about our political status and new president:

1.Santos like Pastrana, graduated from the San Carlos School.

2.He got master degrees in journalism and business from harvard (harvard is almost traditional in our presidents, Uribe and Pastrana got degrees there too).

3.Last year, the prudent fiscal measures took by the Uribe’s government against the global crisis, achieved a Colombia’s growth rate of 0.4 (the latin America average index was -2.6)

4.Uribe’s government reduced the FARC army’s soldiers from 16,000 to 8,000.

5.The Santos grandfather’s brother was Colombia president too.

6.The exports with Venezuela went down 68% between March 2009 and March 2010.

7.Colombia is actually the Latin America’s fourth largest oil producer. It has increased its exports to China, Chile, the US, and Brazil.

I want to finish this listing, saying that the most important achievement of the Uribe’s government, is for me, the return of our nation hope. We believe again in our people good will. the time of fear and pain of our nation is passing to the old pages of history. And a new chapter of our country has started, upon the sacrifice of brave men who did not resign these difficult eight years.

I really thank God for everyone of these great men. Dad, may you bring us peace and development for the next four years? Thanks in advance.
