Liberal Party member Piedad Cordoba is Colombia’s most controversial politician.
Her uncle was influential Partido Liberal representative Diego Luis Cardona, known for his contribution to the creation of Chocó Department, as a political and administrative entity.
Her successful performance allowed her to be elected into more influential offices, first being Medellin councilwoman in 1989, and then securing office at the Antioquia Departmental Assembly.
Alvaro Uribe – and other right-wing politicians’ – fierce opposition to Cordoba’s ideas and actions has led to many attempts to challenge Cordoba’s reputation.
This movement is committed to the Colombian peace process and was an active promoter and participant of the march for peace in April of 2013.
