COLOMBIA: Presidential Candidates Ask ELN For Open-ended Ceasefire

05/15/2018 - 18:44:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - Colombia's presidential candidates asked the National Liberation Army guerrilla to suspend the group's activities during the May 27 election and insisted that the ceasefire remains in force for an "indefinite" period.

Humberto de la Calle, a presidential candidate and former chief negotiator of the Colombian government during the peace talks with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), said that a suspension of the ELN activities during the election would be good news, "but is really insufficient."

The former Colombian vice president, Germ?n Vargas Lleras, said that the ceasefire alone would not be enough. "It can't be that while they are negotiating [peace] in Cuba, they are also building up their military and controlling the drugs and illegal mining business. In the end, however, that would be a good first step."

ELN said that it would suspend its military activities from May 25 to 29 so that the Colombian people can vote.
