Next year, Colombian voters will go to the polls to choose a new president and a new congress, and the FARC are supposed to take part in the electoral process for the first time

In Colombia, a peace process between Colombia’s Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC) and the government is about to hit a milestone.

On Monday, the FARC rebel group is due to hand over their arms stockpile to the United Nations.

That will mark a decisive step in the historic peace deal that has brought an end to more than 50 years of war in the country.

“We made the decision to lay down weapons, so that we could enter politics,” says Ivan Marquez. FARC’s chief negotiator, adding that the group originally started as a political movement.

But there are many obstacles standing in the way of peace, and as TRT World ‘s Anelise Borges reports from Bogota, implementing the accord will be the toughest battle both sides have ever faced.
