Juan Manuel Santos

In this May 17, 2014 file photo, Colombia’s President and Social Party of National Unity presidential candidate, Juan Manuel Santos waves upon his arrival to a campaign event in Bogota, Colombia. Despite presiding over what may be South America’s best-performing economy, Santos is struggling amid relentless attacks by his predecessor, Alvaro Uribe and his hand-picked heir, former finance chief Oscar Ivan Zuluaga. Polls say the two are running neck and neck, well ahead of three other candidates but neither likely to garner the 50 percent needed to avoid a runoff. (AP Photo/Javier Galeano, File)
