    Petro has stated that he intends to adjust the pension system by establishing a public manager of pension funds. This will allow for the creation of a “mixed system” of public and private funds.

Petro has recently said, however, that he would not abolish pensions, but would try to improve the pension system in Colombia, in order to achieve an adequate level of pension for Colombians. Petro said that there is “no requirement” to increase the age of retirement.
