Gabriel Boric

Constitution & Climate

The present Constitution in Chile was crafted in 1980 by people who were handpicked by the then military ruler ~ Augusto Pinochet. It opened the country to mining investments and allowed water rights to be bought and sold. Over time, Chile prospered by exploiting its natural resources ~ copper, coal, salmon and avocados.

Many milestones

With a larger mandate than his predecessors, Boric represents the forces that don't belong to the dominant traditional political compact since the 1990s. He is the first candidate in the post-Pinochet era to have won after coming second in the first round. His victory is largely seen as a rebellion against elitism
