H. Res. 1465

                In the House of Representatives, U. S.,

                                                         June 23, 2010.
Whereas nearly 15,000,000 Colombians participated in the first round of 
        Colombia's presidential elections on May 30, 2010;
Whereas no candidate received an outright majority of the vote, thereby 
        requiring a runoff election between Juan Manuel Santos and Antanas 
        Mockus, the two candidates with the highest vote totals;
Whereas Juan Manuel Santos, of the National Unity Party, received 46.7 percent 
        of the votes and Antanas Mockus, of the Green Party, received 21.5 
        percent of the votes;
Whereas in the second round on June 20, 2010, Juan Manuel Santos received 69 
        percent of the votes and was thereby declared President-elect of 
        Colombia;
Whereas Colombia has overcome tremendous challenges to build their democracy; 
        and
Whereas Colombia remains a vital ally and friend of the United States: Now, 
        therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
            (1) reaffirms the longstanding friendship and alliance between the 
        United States and Colombia;
            (2) recognizes Colombia's commitment to the democratic process as 
        demonstrated by the free and fair nature of these multiparty, 
        internationally recognized elections; and
            (3) congratulates President-elect Juan Manuel Santos on his recent 
        victory in Colombia's June 20, 2010, presidential election.
            Attest:

                                                                          Clerk.
