Left-wing Gabriel Borick won the presidential election by a large margin

Chile’s president-elect Gabriel Boric began his election victory speech Sunday in Mapuche’s native language, affirming that thousands of supporters, mostly young people, demand that the rights of a new generation be equal for all.

Borick, a 35-year-old representative of the Recognized Dignity Pact formed by the Communist Party and the left-wing Frende Amblio, won the second round of the presidential election with 56% of the vote over the far-right candidate, Jose Antonio Cast. .

In the first round last month, Cost, known for defending Chile’s military dictatorship, finished two points ahead of the war, but failed to convince voters that his rival’s left – wing agenda would transform America’s more stable and developed economy.

In his speech, Borick reaffirmed his commitment to combating climate change by blocking a mining project and ending the traditional private pension system of the neoliberal economic model imposed by dictator Augusto Pinochet.

However, when he takes office on March 11, the new president will have a divided parliament and an economy that will fight the corona virus epidemic.

As a sign of democratic civilization, Cast immediately conceded defeat in a Twitter message and then went to the war’s campaign headquarters to meet his rival.

Outgoing President Sebastian Pinera addressed the nation after learning of the results. “Today we, the Chileans and Chileans, have elected a new President who will assume the leadership of the country on March 11. I would like to begin by congratulating Gabriel Bori on his victory and wishing him the best of luck.”

The benefits of war are greater than expected in elections polarized following the social protests that led to the drafting of a new constitution. Borik, unlike Cast, has endorsed the work of the Constituent Assembly.
