Elections in Chile

Gabriel Boric won this year’s presidential elections in Chile. He is known to be a former student activist and won 56 percent of the votes. President Boric’s opponent Jose Antonio Kast, a more conservative politician, was able to capture the remaining 44 percent of the votes. After the results announcing Boric as Chile’s youngest-ever president at 35 years of age came out, Boric announced to the crowds that he was going to be “the president of all Chileans” and that he was going to do his “best to get on top of this tremendous challenge.” Boric will officially take office in March and has been called a “promising president” by some.

Hi everyone! My name is Lilly and I am a high school student based in Germany, where I am currently enrolled in the IB diploma programme. Aside from founding EconIR WEB, I am also the President of JEC Berlin. Being a student who has a deep interest and passion for economics and international relations myself, I know how challenging it can be to find ways to engage with your areas of interest. Therefore, I created EconIR WEB. I hope that through EconIR WEB we will be able to build a strong community of students who share the same passion. Cant wait for you to join!
