Santos told reporters that he would make a formal announcement by the November deadline.
"I want clearly and firmly to see that the government's policies continue after August 7, 2014," said Santos, referring to the date a new administration would take office.
"I want the peace policy re-elected, I want the housing policy re-elected, those that have reduced poverty - re-elected."
Santos also announced that Housing Minister German Vargas Lleras, who led a program to give 100,000 free homes to the poor, has resigned from the Cabinet and will run a foundation that helped Santos win the 2010 presidential election.
