- Program Description
1978 was an election year in Columbia, one of the few remaining democracies in South America. It was an important election, for the first time in 20 years the government was up for grabs. In 1957, after violence had claimed 250,000 lives, leaders of the Conservative and Liberal parties formed a National Front. They agreed to take turns governing the country every four years. In 1978, the last stage of the agreement was reached and the election may hinge on the economic divisions in the country.
