Piñera, Sanchez Win Party Primaries in Chile

SANTIAGO – Former President Sebastian Piñera and journalist Beatriz Sanchez won their parties’ presidential primaries over the weekend in Chile.

Piñera, who governed Chile from 2010 to 2014, won 58.28 percent of the vote in the center-right Let’s Go coalition’s primary, outdistancing independent Sen. Manuel Jose Ossandon, who garnered 26.37 percent of the vote, and Evopoli leader Congressman Felipe Kast, who received 15.36 percent of the vote.

Sanchez received 67.61 percent of the vote in the leftist Broad Front alliance’s primary, rolling to an easy win over sociologist Alberto Mayol.

The governing leftist New Majority coalition, which includes centrist and leftist parties, did not participate in Sunday’s primaries, the first regulated by law in Chile’s history.

New Majority will have two candidates competing in the presidential election in November – Sen. Carolina Goic, the president of the Christian Democrats, and Sen. Alejandro Guillier, who is supported by the rest of the parties in the bloc.

Turnout was strong for the primaries even though Chile was playing Germany in the Confederations Cup final.

Germany beat Chile 1-0 in St. Petersburg, Russia.
