“We think we’ve done the best possible job, but it’s the Colombians who will judge us,” said Humberto de la Calle, the chief negotiator for the Colombian government. “We have to wait for the citizens’ verdict.”
Most polls show that a majority of Colombians will vote in favor of the deal, but there is still a chance that voters will strike it down. The former president, Álvaro Uribe, who is known for his tough military stance against the FARC, is leading the campaign urging Colombians to vote No on the deal. He and his party, the Centro Democratico, have said that it gives impunity to FARC guerrillas who have committed war crimes by allowing them to avoid jail time and instead face alternative punishments if they tell the truth.
