    Primaries in Chile: Gabriel Boric won on the left and Sebastián Sichel on the right, by Argentinian journalist Juan Carlos Ramírez Figueroa for Página 12 outlet. 19.07.2021.

    The favorites lost, the communist Jadue and the Pinochetist Lavín.

    Presidential candidatures were defined for November 21. ” If Chile was the cradle of neoliberalism, it will also be its grave, " said Boric, one of the masterminds of the constituent agreement and one of the surprises of the day.

    From Santiago: Surprising were the results of the primaries in Chile, which officially open the way to the presidential elections on November 21. Gabriel Boric (Social Convergence-Broad Front) beat Daniel Jadue (Communist Party) by 60.24% against 39.76% with 94.5% of the polling stations. Despite the fact that the latter, for two years he led all the polls, the last being the Criteria of June where he came to score 18% over the right-wing Joaquín Lavín with 13%. For the right grouped in “Chile Vamos” the same thing happened: Lavín was defeated by the former minister of Social Development, Sebastián Sichel with 48.96% against 31.49%.

    Although it cannot be assured in this new scenario that the new president of Chile will come from here, since the center-left that ruled the country during much of the return to Democracy —DC, PPD and PS— still does not officially define a single candidate, the name of current president of the senate Yasna Provoste (DC) sounds strong. And there are also cards with relative drag in more radical right-wing nuclei such as José Antonio Kast (Republican Party) that could unbalance the balance.

    The constituent process

    Main thing is that the new president of Chile will be the one that will seal the Constituent process, all in the midst of a massive lockdown ending on Monday, Santiago and most of the country will go through “phase 3” that will allow the free movement and the opening of commercial premises weekend— a long weekend that began on Friday and a Constitutional Convention that drafted the new constitution that will replace the 1980s already installed.

    Chile experiences a generational change after primary elections

    Chile closed a historic presidential primary, with important signs of generational and political renewal, such as the result obtained by congressman Gabriel Boric, elected standard-bearer of the Leftist pact Apruebo Dignidad.

    In this regard," we are at the beginning of a great change, " he said.

    In this sense, "the period of democratic transition that began in the nineties with the end of the military government, in which elements of the old regime coexisted with elements of the new, is now closing," he said.

    For his part, "we are witnessing a diffusion of political representations, given that the left has several components, not only in political and programmatic terms, but also in age, " he said. In this sense, "the group that Gabriel Boric represents is a new, post-Cold War left," he said. Likewise," it incorporates elements of the XXI Century, such as the priority to ecological issues, which leads to new political, economic and cultural practices", Gaspar concluded.

    Chilean presidential candidate Boric was attacked in an activity in favor of the imprisoned demonstrators, 30.7.2021.

    SANTIAGO (Sputnik) - Chilean congressman and presidential candidate Gabriel Boric (left) was insulted and assaulted inside Santiago 1 prison when he tried to participate in an activity on behalf of protesters detained during the protests of the social explosion.

    "The candidate was in module 12 of the prison where the prisoners of the social revolt are, who rebuked him and even one person assaulted him with fist blows in the face," the president of the National Association of Prison Officials, Patricio Baquedano, told radio Biobío.

    The candidate had to leave the place and abroad was insulted by the relatives of the detainees, who accused him of passing laws in Congress that tightened the measures of repression against the demonstrators during the social explosion.

    For his part, Boric asked that the people who assaulted him not be punished.

    "In the face of the aggressions we receive, we have asked the authorities not to institute any type of sanction, because what is being experienced today in the Santiago 1 prison as in other prisons in the country is already serious and unfair enough," the candidate said through a video uploaded to his social networks.

    The deputy detailed that the attack occurred when he went to prison with other parliamentarians to an activity in favor of the demonstrators arrested during the protests of the social explosion, when a group of them confronted him and assaulted him.

    Boric explained that the aggression was not serious and assured that he will continue " to work with his head held high for truth, justice, reparation, pardon of political prisoners and for dignified and humane conditions in all prisons in Chile."

    The prisoners of the revolt, called "political prisoners" by those who are in favor of anti-government demonstrations, are a group of people accused of crimes committed in the framework of the citizen demonstrations of social explosion (October 2019-March 2020), and whose exact number is not yet clear.

    Boric is a militant of the leftist party Social Convergence, which belongs to the Broad Front coalition, and after winning the primary election of July 18 is the presidential candidate of the pact Aprobo Dignidad, which brings together the Broad Front, the Communist Party, the Equality Party and the Social Green Regionalist Front.

    Presidential elections will be held on November 21, with the possibility of a second round on December 19.
