A new poll from exit polling company Almacenes Exito Colombia shows that the country will leave the European Union in the year 2021.
The exit poll showed that in the first three months of 2021, Colombia would exit the bloc in the event that no new government was formed in Colombia and the current President, Juan Manuel Santos, was forced to step down.
But the pollster explained that this does not necessarily mean that the Colombian Government will leave as it will only be considered if Santos does not stay in office for the remainder of the term.
According to the poll, Santos will stay in power until 2027 when he will be eligible for another four years.
He is the fifth President of Colombia to step aside following the death of former President Alvaro Uribe in 2018.
Santos resignation has prompted a series of protests in Colombia.
In September, thousands of people marched to the Colombian Embassy in London and took to the streets of the capital Bogota to demand the resignation of Santos.
In January, the country was hit by the deadliest wave of violence in decades, as a coalition of left-wing opposition groups called on the Colombian government to resign over a perceived lack of action to tackle the rampant corruption in the country.
President Santos was re-elected in 2018, but the ruling coalition lost power to the leftist United Self-Defence (UNASUR) coalition.
