Elections in Chile

  • Online

Canning House is hosts a discussion on Chile's November general election, looking ahead at what the results could mean for the country.

Elections in Chile

The first round of Chile’s 2021 general election will take place on 21 November. Gabriel Boric, candidate for the leftist Apruebo Dignidad coalition, and Sebastián Sichel, for the centre-right Chile Podemos Más coalition (formerly Chile Vamos, led by President Sebastián Piñera) have taken the lead in polling, followed closely by Yasna Provoste from the Nuevo Pacto Social coalition, José Antonio Kast from the Frente Social Cristiano and a chasing group of other candidates.

This election comes after a period of significant social unrest in Chile in recent years; amidst the ongoing economic fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic; and at the midpoint of a process of major constitutional reform. All this leaves Chile in an uncertain position – with this election likely deciding whether its politics could take a turn to the left, or continue on their current path.

Canning House is pleased to host a discussion of the election’s first round results, looking ahead at what the results could mean for Chile.
