Colombia's Incoming VP Francia Márquez in Her Own Words: "A New Form of Government Is Possible"
Following the historic victory in Colombia's presidential election of former guerrilla member, former senator and former mayor of Bogotá Gustavo Petro and his running mate, the Afro-Colombian environmentalist Francia Márquez Mina, we feature interviews with each of the candidates on Democracy Now! Francia Márquez Mina is set to become Colombia's first Black vice president. We spoke to her in March, when she was running for president. She later lost in the primary to Petro, who went on to choose her as his running mate. "We are giving impetus to the idea that in Colombia a new form of government is possible, governance that is built up from the Black, Indigenous and peasant peoples from the very different sectors of the community, LGBTIQ , from the youth, from the women, from the small farmers of Colombia, those who have been no one — that is to say, who have never had a voice in the government," says Márquez Mina.
