5:07 am
a constant and it's constantly trying to reassure people. oh, you know, anyway, we take them as can be better than here. was i, we're leaving everything behind everything that we've had here for 70 years and we don't know where we'll go. this. i'm ukrainian troops in the z chance. carney, just on the defensive there now firing at russian positions and 7 are done yet so tenaciously refusing to give up the fight left as presidential candidate, gustavo petro wins columbia's election by a narrow margin. the former gorilla and current senator will be columbia's 1st left . his leader, he's edged out his opponent, former mayor and millionaire rudolfo hernandez, petras when march a drastic change in presidential politics for a country that has long marginalized the left for its pursuit association with decades of insurgency. now, earlier i asked e w. 's johan ramirez,
5:08 am
how petrol was able to pull off the surprising victory he had a very successful electron dump, any very successful communication campaign, because actually he presented himself as said renovation as a change as a, a break. we continue to by the truth, is that gustavo better has been doing politics in columbia for the last 30 years. he wasn't the congress 1st thing, he was diplomatic. then he was mayor a bullet that one of the main jobs in politics in columbia. now he's again in the congress now. he becomes a president, but he, he has very been very successful presenting himself as a renovation. and father did sap on daily hiking. was also a former gary. yes. so he was very also successful in re right in his bust. his all plant below fernandez is a very rich man, and it was easy for better to, to attack him off being part of the political and economic lead of the country.
