BOGOTA, Aug 21 (Reuters) - Some members of Colombia's central bank board favored raising the benchmark interest rate, board co-director Jose Dario Uribe said on Friday, though the majority voted to leave the rate unchaged at 4.5 percent.
The decision marks the 12th consecutive month the rate has been held. (Reporting by Julia Symmes Cobb)
