    Abstention is a persistent feature of Chilean elections – where rarely more than half of the electorate turns out. Despite the seemingly high stakes of yesterday’s election, participation hit just 47%.

    Workers do not trust in any of the political parties and candidates, in reality, there are not too many differences between both, and the offers made by the left can also be accomplished by the right. In Costa Rica, most of the time people have elected right-wingers and they have the same social services offered by any so-called left-wing government. Salvador Allende also had a low percentage of votes

The candidate from the left is not offering anything that can not be done by the right wings
