dc.description.abstractThis paper examines the effect of selecting candidates over public expenditure after the 1986 electoral reform that took place in Colombia. Exploiting the victory of the candidate of a non-traditional political party as a source of variation, I use a differences-in-differences approach and find that municipalities that elected a mayor from one of this movements experienced an increase in public expenditure 8% higher than those places that elected either a Conservative or a Liberal candidate. Subsequently, I breakdown the treatment group between municipalities where a Left-Wing party won and those where another kind of third party did to identify the actual effect of bringing public policy closer to voters preferences. I find that these particular places experienced au additional increase in public expenditure of 10%. Finally, I test and discard alternative hypothesis, in order to conclude that my results are effectively capturing a selection effectes_CO
