Sunday Girl

The Chilean Presidential elections scheduled for this coming Sunday look more complicated than 3 months ago when Michelle Bachelet from the ruling center-left party had a 30% lead. Indeed, the latest surveys predict a run-off with right wing candidate Sebastián Piñera.

These are the numbers of an recent survey reported by the blog Chile/Elecciones/2005:

Bachelet: 38,5%
Piñera: 22,1%
Lavín: 16%
Hirsch: 7,6%

After all Chile may not elect her first female President this year and the continental balance may shift a bit to the right.
