Benenson Strategy Group partner Pete Brodnitz's commentary on the Colombian presidential election is featured in the latest issue of The Economist.
Colombians cannot live on the promise of peace alone. “He’ll have to advance on social issues, on inequality, things that really touch people’s lives today because peace could take time,” says Pete Brodnitz, a political strategist who worked on the Santos campaign. Priorities include passing health-care and judicial reforms that were scuttled in his first term; redistributing royalty payments from mining and oil companies; and eliminating the option of presidential re-election, and increasing terms in this office to five or six years.
Pete is the head of Benenson Strategy Group's Washington, DC office and has been a senior adviser to President Juan Manuel Santos since 2009. Please click here for the full article by The Economist.
