Colombia reaches new peace deal with FARC rebels

On 13 November 2016, lead government negotiator, Humberto de la Calle, announced that after nearly two months of negotiations, the peace deal with FARC has once again reached an agreement. While the official document is yet to be released (El Pais), local news agencies El Pais and El Tiempo have reported some of the changes. In total, 56 of the 57 changes proposed by the "No" campaign had an impact over the re-negotiations. For example, the new agreement more strictly defines the zones to which the guerrillas will be restricted as a alternative to jail, the limitation of political participation by former FARC members, the denial of FARC participation in the Protection and Security Commission, and the removal of foreign judges in the penal process.
