FARC peace deal at risk as conservative Duque wins Colombia presidencyConservative Ivan Duque won Colombia’s presidential election Sunday after a campaign that turned into a referendum on a landmark 2016 peace deal with FARC rebels that he pledged to overhaul. Duque, 41, polled just over 54 percent to his leftist rival Gustavo Petro’s 41.7 percent with 97 percent of the vote counted, electoral authority figures showed. “These are momentous elections,” President Juan Manuel Santos, who will step down in August, said as he cast his ballot early in the day.
