Advanced 13: La Política

We talk about the political set up in Colombia. Liz used to work in the Colombian senate, so has some good experience here! We talk about Colombian political parties, politicians, the political system, and key voting issues.

NOTE: Liz mentions hearing of a political party she thought was founded by Jehova’s Witnesses. However, we’ve been contacted and assured that this is not the case, so we got that one wrong!
