The Communist Party of Malta congratulates the left coalition for its landslide victory in its presidential elections in Chile, where the Left Coalition made up of the socialists, the communists and the christian democrats swept away the previous neoliberal government.
“The left coalition led by the socialist Michelle Bachelet won over 62% of the votes, while the right wing coalition gathered 38%. This was another success in Latin America where once again the people rejected the neoliberal economic policies”.
The Communist Party of Malta sends its best wishes to the Communist Party of Chile, which had a vital part in the left electoral victory. Communists in government will ensure the implementation of social and educational reforms promised during the election campaign.
