Colombia's approves plebiscite to seal peace deal

Friday, November 20, 2015

Colombians will have the option to vote either “yes” or “no” to an eventual peace deal with FARC rebels with a plebiscite, the Senate decided.

The government and guerrilla group the FARC have penciled in 23 March 2016 as the date for the signing of their final peace deal. However, the agreement will not become valid until the Colombian population has voted on it.
