After counting the constituency with just over 98 percent of the voting tables, Borek, backed by the Democratic Revolution, Social Convergence and Joint Parties, received 1,16,347 votes to 60.3 percent.
His opponent in the I Agree with Dignity coalition, Daniel Gadeau, received 667,857 votes, or 39.6 percent.
Jadue is supported by Chile’s Digno leadership, which brings together the Communist Party and Green Social Federation, along with several left-wing political and social movements.
In celebration of his victory, Borek sent a brotherly hug to the Communist Party and other forces that supported Jado and called on all Chileans not to fear the youth to change the country “because we have learned from the experience of those who fought before us.”
He stressed that it is necessary to form a government capable of projecting the people, an organized civil society, and more power to the regions.
He warned that the leftist I agree with Karama coalition “is not just an electoral alliance, but arose in struggles and social mobilization” since the October 2019 revolution, but also long before that.
He also stressed that if Chile was the cradle of neoliberalism, it could also be its grave.
Borek concluded by reminding him of the words of Salvador Allende when faced with the forces of the coup in September 1973, he asserted that “sooner rather than later, the great avenues through which the free man passes will open up to build a better person.”
For his part, acknowledging his defeat, Jadu welcomed the victory of the Broad Front, and expressed his willingness to work without any doubt and without ceasing until the coalition I agree with dignity moves to the right of government and builds a state that transcends. The neoliberal model.
He also thanked all the forces that supported him and especially the independents, who, he said, had proven to be an emerging force with extraordinary momentum within Chilean society, which requires greater unity as a fundamental basis for any political change.
Although polling started with low turnout, it was gaining traction, especially during the last hours, until it reached a total of 3,331,701 voters, the historically high turnout of the three primaries held in this South American country. Likewise, analysts warned that both Borek and Gadu outnumbered the winner of the right-wing primaries, independent Sebastian Seychelles, who received 637,546 votes.
