Gustavo Petro is a Colombian economist, politician, former guerrilla fighter and senator of Italian descent, who was elected President of Colombia on 19 June 2022.[1]

Running mate

Together with Francia Márquez — the Afro-Colombian feminist and land defender who joined his ticket as the Vice Presidential candidate — Gustavo Petro will form the first progressive government in the history of Colombia.

Progressive International

For a third time in 2022, a member of the Progressive International won a presidential election — Gabriel Boric in Chile, Xiomara Castro in Honduras, and now Gustavo Petro in Colombia — while PI delegations were on the ground throughout the election to help ensure the integrity, transparency, and fairness of the democratic process.[2]

Support from Corbyn

Solidarity for Petro from Jeremy Corbyn

The stunning win for @petrogustavo in Colombia is testament to the organising work done in communities across the country — a win for human rights, peace and social justice. Unity, solidarity, victory![3]
