Chile’s Presidential election : Is emotional not political…..

On the 15th of December the Chileans go to the polls yet again, after the main candidates failed to reach the 50% threshold to reach the Presidency this triggered a 2nd round with the two highest placed candidates: Michelle Bachelet vs Evelyn Matthei

The election has become an emotional rather than political, 23 years after the return of democracy is still feels the effects of the dictatorship and its unresolved issues. This is reflected in its candidates both on opposite sides of the divide.

Will Chile finally find closure in this election will this linger until all participants of those years are gone; And a new generation untainted by the years of oppression and the years of change to democracy take over?…
