In Colombia, voters went to the polls Sunday in the first nationwide election that’s seen members of the former FARC rebel movement run for political office as part of a historic peace agreement ratified last year. The election saw a strong showing by President Álvaro Uribe’s Democratic Center party. FARC fared poorly, winning just 0.4 percent of the vote, but as part of the peace agreement the FARC will see 10 of its members seated in parliament.
