FARC and Colombian Government Agree on Political Participation | Fellowship of Reconciliation

On November 6, two weeks short of the one year mark of negotiations, the Colombian government and FARC guerrillas issued their 27th joint press release announcing a general agreement to end the armed conflict and for political participation and propelling the two sides forward through the second of their five-point negotiation plan. The negotiating teams reached an agreement on the first point, land reform, in May of this year.

The press release lays out guidelines for political participation, including: “guarantees for the exercise of political opposition in general and in particular for new movements that might arise after the signing of the final peace agreement, access to media, democratic mechanisms of citizen participation, including direct involvement on different levels and different subjects, effective measures to promote greater participation in national, regional and local politics of all sectors, including the most vulnerable population, in equal conditions and with security guarantees.”
