WILLS-OTERO, LAURA  y  HOYOS, CARLOS ANDRÉS. Colombia in 2015: Peace, Regional Elections and the Relations Between Branches of Power. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2016, vol.36, n.1, pp.75-101. ISSN 0718-090X.

The aim of this article is to present some of the key events that occurred in the Colombian political, economic, and social spheres, as well as political processes that took place within and among the three branches of power during 2015. During the year, the executive, the legislative, and the judicial branches did efforts to create conditions directed to overcome the armed conflict through peace negotiations. Regional elections that took place in October were permeated by the idea of considering each regions' particular conditions to allow the construction of a territorial peace. In the sections that follow we summarize some facts that occurred in the country over the year. We also present a list and a short analysis of constitutional reforms and new laws that were sanctioned during the year. In the third section, we show subnational electoral results. Then, we describe the composition of the executive and the legislative branches, and we analyze inter-branches relations. Finally, we say something about the relations between different levels of government, and about the general functioning of the Colombian democracy.

Palabras clave : Peace process; regional elections; economic; political and social juncture; legislative executive and judicial branches.
