    President Alvaro Uribe, first elected in 2002, is popular for his US-backed crackdown on the cocaine-financed Farc.

    He may run for a third term next year if his supporters succeed in changing the constitution to allow him to campaign again.

    The Farc is Latin America's oldest and largest armed group, and has been battling the government in Bogota for 45 years.
