Colombians vote for 'safe pair of hands' as president
In the end, it seems Colombians were more comfortable with continuity than change when they cast their votes in Sunday's presidential election. Juan Manuel Santos, the former defence minister who helped to implement President Alvaro Uribe's hard-line, US-backed security policies, scored a decisive win with nearly 47% of the vote. "I must confess that I am very excited and I receive these results with humility," said Mr Santos. "Today Colombia won, today democracy won."
