Piñera to Propose Major Agreements, Wants to Be President for All Chileans

SANTIAGO – Conservative president-elect Sebastian Piñera, winner of the Chilean presidential elections held on Sunday, announced in a speech to thousands of supporters that he will propose major agreements to be “the president of all.”

“We received this magnificent triumph not only with humility, but also with hope,” Piñera told his supporters, who shouted “Chile was saved!”

“Long live difference! Long live pluralism of ideas! But these differences should never make us enemies, because every time we Chileans confront ourselves and become enemies, we suffer our greatest defeats,” said Piñera, who proclaimed his commitment to dialogue and agreements.

Piñera began his speech remembering the victims of the tragedy in the town of Chaiten, where on Saturday a landslide, triggered by ruptures in a glacier, killed at least eight people with 16 still missing, according to the provisional report.

“Together, we are going to transform Chile into a developed country, without poverty,” the president-elect proclaimed, promising to work to end “abuses and arbitrary discrimination.”

He announced that his government “will pursue great dreams, but will never stray from reality,” because it will make decisions “with realism and prudence.”
