FARC Announces Formation of Political Party; Will Launch in May (S)

We declare that we have fulfilled the mandate of the X Conference to conform the Central General Staff for transitioning from a guerrilla structure to legal political party. The leadership of FARC has been increased from 32 to 61 members and their fundamental task is linked to the consolidation of the peace process […] The new FARC Political Party will be an open, democratic and modern party with the ability to interpret and represent the collective interests of the nation and especially of the common people, the poor and the forgotten. There is a place for all who want a positive change for Colombia with dignified life, democracy, without exclusions, without corruption and with sovereignty. Las2Orillas
