'Yes' camp leads ahead of Colombia peace vote

A historic peace deal between the Colombian government and FARC rebels is poised to be ratified in a decisive referendum on October 2, according to two opinion polls published Friday. With just over three weeks to go to the referendum, the “Yes” camp has 72 percent of the vote against 28 percent for the “No” camp, found polling firm Ipsos. The government and the Marxist guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) concluded a final peace accord on August 24 to end a 52-year war.
