MetadataShow full item record
The Colombian Congress began its last session on July 20th, which will run through December 1st. On the priority fast track agenda are two items in particular related to the implementation of the peace accord signed on November 24, 2016: electoral reform, and the creation of Special Transitional Peace Constituencies (CTEP). The latter originates in Point 2 (Political Participation) of the Final Accord and attempts to increase the level of representation that historically underrepresented populations have had in the national legislative body, and to ensure that those areas most affected by the armed conflict have a seat at the table for the next two terms that will bring a great deal to bear on the implementation of the final accord.
