The peace talks are reportedly finalized, but there’s a lot to do for government and FARC for taking into effect this historical peace agreement.

The FARC should disarm, and while there is some uncertainty about the exact order of the procedure, and individual points of an agreement. For an instance, average Colombians know nothing about it.

There’re a lot of questions, among them how many seats in Congress the FARC will have during the transitional post-conflict period. President underlined that the government has an “education” mission, using TV and radio commercials and publications on social media publications to explain the peace deal.
