Gabriel Boric Wins Chile's Presidential Election
Gabriel Boric is a Chilean leftist politician and former student leader who will become the country's next president after winning a runoff election on Sunday. Let's break down what makes Gabriel Boric such an important figure in Chile and how he plans to use his presidency to improve the country.
The Communist Party's Gabriel Boric emerged victorious in Chile's presidential election on Sunday. It was a landslide victory for him, with 55.9% of the vote.
Upon taking office, he will not only be Chile's youngest president in its history, but also the world's second-youngest leader in the same capacity, as well as the country's most popular.
Because of this, he was guaranteed to win from his hard-line approach on education and support for social programs that made him stand out against other candidates.
