The Communist Party of Malta welcomes the positive results obtained by the left in Chile’s Presidential Election. A new left Coalition has won the majority of the votes. This Coalition is made up of socialists, communists, radicals, christian democrats, and other left organisations and movements. In all, the left got 46% of the total votes against the 25% obtained by the right wing coalition.
“Bachelet’s left wing coalition is also expected to win the next run-off against Evelyn Mettei’s right wing coalition, on December 15th”.
The Party also applauds the election in the lower house of four of the former student leaders who were behind the student revolution that started in 2011, with one of them Camilla Vallejo representing the communists’ student faction in Chile.
