The contest for the Presidential position of the Colombia election is set for a bitter runoff between two frontrunners from opposite ends of the political spectrum.

Iván Duque, a hardline conservative who viscerally opposes the peace accord, took the largest share of the vote on Sunday with 39%, though fell short of the 50% required to win at the first round. Instead, he will face Gustavo Petro – a leftwinger and former mayor of Bogotá, who came second with 25% – in the second round on 17 June.
