Santiago awoke quietly with the blue sky and the long night. Presidential victory Gabriel Borick, Was soon identified by his adversary Jose Antonio Cast, This calmed any situation of speculation on the continent where some presidential elections turned into areas of high tension or instability, for example, took place in May this year in Peru. The selected candidate gave a speech in front of the overflowing Alameda Avenue and then quickly started doing things that are coming up, which is a lot.
The new government will be in a strong domestic position Social mobilization Support, high expectations, equality in legislative power, a right to show that he has no objection to marching around a Pinochet candidate, expect it, and seek to defend it The economic model maintained since the dictatorship Augusto Pinochet scored. It will be a complex scenario for which Borick declared in his victory speech that he would “move forward with short but firm steps” within the framework of “change in the historical cycle”.
Within the framework of the campaign carried out by the political coalition between the Broad Front – his place – and the Communist Party, he did not name the new president at the moment who could be members of his new government. , In turn, had good relations with former Consortian members on several occasions. Less than three months to go before Borik forms cabinet and takes office: 36-year-old president, former student leader, Member of Parliament, questioning the legacy of a new political generation, dictatorship.
Internal expectation is associated with progressive sectors and a key section of the left. Internationally, Especially Latin America. The victory of the war marks the end of 2021 marked by the victories of Pedro Castillo in Peru and Siomara Castro in Honduras. In the wake of the resurgence of progressive forces, Chile’s new president has added a third center-left president to the continent this year: the map we see today is very different from what Andres Manuel Lopez met when Obrador took office. Alberto Fernandez in Mexico in 2018, or Argentina, won simultaneously with the coup in Bolivia in 2019.
This development of progressive governments on the continent began to have its relevance as a regional integration effort, for example, at the summit CELAC Held in Mexico last September. The perspective of a warlike government viewed from that perspective can create expectations for leadership support. Coordinator. Senator Juan Ignacio Lador’s statement, part of the Democratic Revolution within the Broad Front and in charge of the international section of the war’s campaign command, had already anticipated: “We want to help express or express, because this is not the only one. And sees forces like China and the United States, but with political autonomy “.
“I really look forward to all the political movements that will take place in Latin America,” Lador said. Hopefully next year Lula will defeat the far right (In Brazil), In Colombia (Gustavo) there may be an accent with Petro and several progressive governments. Elections in both countries, first May and second October, will be crucial in terms of the economic, geopolitical and diplomatic significance of the two countries, especially in the case of Brazil.
Unlike Boric, Fernandez or Lopez Obrador, he will be president of Chile at the time of strengthening the progressive forces based on the map of governments, and the weakness or disappearance of right-wing initiatives such as Group de Lima. After the formation in 2019 of a policy against the government of Nicolas Maduro or Prosur in 2017, in unison, the right-wing governments of South America left Unasur.
Will Chile assume a leading role in advancing the strengthening of regional tools in this continental context? Or will it remain in the background? It definitely depends on the balance between your priorities, ideas, commitments, strengths or inner weaknesses. The case of Peru, who became president at the end of July, shows that internal weakness could simultaneously lead to a loss of initiative in foreign policy or that policy should be negotiated more significantly.
For now, LaDore said The war’s first foreign tour was “probably Argentina”, the victory of the war in that country was the arrival of a government of close political nature. In its neighboring country with access to the Pacific Ocean. Finally, the victory of the new Chilean president is viewed from the perspective of Latin American progressivism, which is seen not only as a greater possibility for regional construction, but also as a failure of the far-right political forces that have developed and initiated in recent times. In many countries. The victory of the war is the defeat of Cast, Jair Bolzano, Javier Miley, Vokes or Mario Vargas Losa.
