Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos wins 2016 Nobel Peace Prize

The 2016 Nobel Peace Prize was on 7 October 2016 awarded to Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos for his resolute efforts to bring the country's more than 50-year-long civil war to an end, a war that took away the lives of at least 220000 Colombians and displaced nearly six million people.
●    The civil war in Colombia is one of the longest civil wars in modern times and the sole remaining armed conflict in the Americas.
●    President Santos initiated the negotiations that culminated in the peace accord between the Colombian government and the FARC guerrillas as he consistently sought to move the peace process forward. 
●    The accord was controversial, however he was instrumental in ensuring that Colombian voters were able to voice their opinion concerning the peace accord in a referendum. 
●    The outcome of the vote was not what President Santos wanted as a narrow majority of the over 13 million Colombians voted against the accord. 
●    Despite the "No" majority vote in the referendum, President Santos brought the bloody conflict significantly closer to a peaceful solution. 
●    His endeavours to promote peace thus fulfil the criteria and spirit of prize.
