Chile picks new Constitutional Convention after widespread unrest

DW, 18 May 2021
The South American country Chile is about to get a new constitution. Political independents and left-wing parties look set to dominate construction of the first draft after this weekend's landmark poll, as
the conservative coalition of President Sebastian Pinera had not achieved its aim of winning a third of the seats. A new constitution was a key demand of protesters who took to the streets in 2019 in weeks of demonstrations that left several dozen dead. The vote is being called Chile's most important election since its return to democracy 31 years ago.
