Colombia’s formerly largest armed insurgent group, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), is set to turn into a political party with the same acronym, Luciano Marin Arango, also known as “Ivan Marquez,” said Tuesday.

Earlier in the day, President Juan Juan Manuel Santos announced the finalization of the half-century conflict between FARC and the government.

“Soon we will hold a foundation congress of a new political party which be surely dubbed the Revolutionary Alternative Force of Colombia. We do not want to break the links with the past, we have been and we will continue to be a revolutionary force,” Arango said, referring to the fact the new political party’s acronym will remain as FARC.
