桑托斯成功连任哥伦比亚总统

Colombian president reelected with commitment to peace

Colombia's incumbent President Juan Manuel Santos won a second four-year term in a presidential runoff on Sunday.

Colombia's National Civil Registry said on its website that Santos beat his rival Oscar Ivan Zuluaga with 50.89 percent of the vote against 45.06 percent.

Santos' victory came as a relief to his supporters backing peace talks with the leftist rebels rather than a war that would be an option for the opposition candidate Zuluaga.

In a victory speech, Santos thanked Colombians for their support and highlighted peace as an essential condition for the country's development, as his followers shouting "peace, peace, Colombia wants peace!".

Santos sent a message to the two largest anti-government guerrilla groups, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the National Liberation Army (ELN), saying that he would dedicate all the energies of his government to end the decades-long conflict.

"This is the beginning of a new Colombia in peace with itself," said the reelected president, calling on all his compatriots to make painstaking efforts toward lasting peace in the country.

Santos, 62, from the ruling Social Party of National Unity, presented himself as the candidate of peace.

His rival Oscar Ivan Zuluaga conceded his defeat, saying if he had been elected, he would have provisionally suspended peace talks with FARC until it agreed to an unilateral ceasefire.

Santos initiated negotiations with the FARC in Havana in November 2012 in a bid to end the 50-year-old conflict in Colombia that had killed over 200,000.

The president said on Wednesday that his government was exploring the possibility of launching peace talks with the country's second largest rebel group ELN.

相关新闻:根据哥伦比亚选举机构15日公布的第二轮总统选举投票初步统计结果,现任总统、民族团结社会党候选人桑托斯成功连任哥伦比亚总统,任期将持续到2018年。

哥伦比亚选举机构对99.9%的选票的统计结果显示,桑托斯获得其中50.94%的选票,反对党民主中心党候选人苏卢阿加得到45.01%的选票。

桑托斯在结果公布后发表演说,称他的胜利是全国人民团结的胜利,是和平的胜利,哥伦比亚人民终于可以不再畏惧对和平的希望。

苏卢阿加承认竞选失败,祝贺桑托斯赢得大选,并表示将加倍努力,以反对党身份监督桑托斯政府。

桑托斯与苏卢阿加政见最大的不同之处在于桑托斯支持通过政治谈判方式和平解决国内持续半个世纪的武装冲突,而苏卢阿加则主张军事打击。此间媒体普遍认为,桑托斯的胜出将对哥伦比亚国内和谈起到积极促进作用。

在5月25日举行的第一轮投票中,苏卢阿加以29.26%的得票率位列第一,桑托斯获得25.68%的选票紧随其后。由于5位总统候选人无人得到一半以上选票,得票率居前两位的苏卢阿加和桑托斯需通过第二轮投票一决高下。第二轮投票于6月15日举行。(新华网)
