Colombia Poised for Poll on Presidents Term Limits

 

The Colombian congress is poised to vote on a motion which would allow the current US-backed president Alvaro Uribe to run for a third term in office by changing the Colombian constitution in a referendum.

The president, whose poll ratings remain high despite being links to far-right paramilitary groups and constant cases of killing of civilians and human rights abuses in the country may now be able to run for re-election in 2006.

Critics of Urbie claim he is "authoritarian in style" however support for the president rides on recent successes against FARC rebels and the release of numerous hostages.
