  • Pre electoral: presidential and legislative elections in Chile

    ​On November 21, Chileans go to the polls to elect their next President, to take office in March 2022. Also up for grabs are seats in Congress for the period 2022 – 2026. The electoral system establishes that for a president to be elected in the first round, he/she must get at least 50 percent of the votes. Such a margin of victory seems unlikely for any candidate, meaning a runoff is likely, which would be on December 19. In all, seven candidates are competing for the Executive, of whom two predominate: the conservative José Antonio Kast (Republican Party) and the leftist Gabriel Boric (Apruebo Dignidad).
