Chile gets the most far-left president

  • Former student leader, Gabriel Boric won the race to the president's seat becoming the youngest president of Chile

  • With nearly 97% of the vote counted, the 35-year-old claimed 55.8% to take a 12 percentage point lead over Kast, who quickly accepted his defeat and called Boric to congratulate him

  • Boric vowed to form a youth-led inclusive government with an aim to address poverty and inequality existing due to the free market economy introduced under Pinochet's dictatorship

  • “The times ahead will not be easy,” Boric said on Sunday. “Only with social cohesion, re-finding ourselves and sharing common ground will we be able to advance towards truly sustainable development – which reaches every Chilean."

  • The far-right candidate Kast congratulated Boric and stated that he can count on his party
