The 2021 Chilean presidential election was held on Sunday, 21 November 2021 (first round) and 19 December 2021 (second round). In the second round the front-runners were the Republican José Antonio Kast and the leftist Gabriel Boric. Kast won the first round with a 27.91 % of the votes (1,961,387 votes) and Boric obtained 25.82 % (1,814,777 votes). But Kast lost the second round obtaining 44.13 % (3,650,088 votes) against 55.87 % (4,620,890 votes) from Boric. With this Chile ends an era of free-market oriented policies and Socialism retakes the government.


The Second Government of President Sebastián Piñera was not what his electorate initially expected, he legalized illegal immigrants and passed a law that made immigration to Chile easier, he approved a gender identity law, Same sex "marriage", as well as multiple initiatives related to the climate change hoax.

In the 2019 Chilean State of Emergency, Piñera ended up ceding the Constitution to leftist mobs letting the 2020 Constitutional referendum happen in October in which the writing of the new Constitution was approved. He was also accused of "human rights violations" against violent protesters who vandalized Chilean cities, and in reality, Piñera's response was weak.

He also implemented vaccine passports and lockdowns as well as a big COVID vaccine distribution in Chile during the COVID 'pandemic'.

The initial candidates for the election were very different from the final ones, Daniel Jadue, the communist mayor from Recoleta lost the left-wing primary with Gabriel Boric. In the center-right primary the expected winner was Joaquín Lavín, instead of that, the independent and former minister of Piñera's Administration, Sebastián Sichel, won.

Other proposed candidates were Pamela Jiles, a left-wing deputy famous for proposing the money withdrawals from private pension system (a policy planned to defund the private system but disguised as just a COVID measure).

In the polls Boric and Sichel were the front-runners, however shortly after the first debate José Antonio Kast passed Sichel and became the main right-wing candidate. In that debate Kast said that Chile should get out of United Nations Human Rights Council since there are countries that do not respect Human Rights, he affirmed that he wanted to build a ditch in the border with Bolivia to stop illegal immigration to Chile and to remove the National Institute of Human Rights. Other of his proposals was to give the same benefits to poor married women that currently poor non-married have (this was understood as to give more rights to married women).

Franco Parisi, a center economist (liberal economically), wasn't physically present on Chile since he was accused of not having paid alimony for his children and he currently lives in Alabama, United States.

Eduardo Artés was a far-left candidate who is Stalinist and supports North Korea, defined Boric as too moderate for condemning human right violations in the Nicolás Maduro regime.

In the first round, Parisi and Kast won strongly on the north of Chile, Yasna Provoste on the Atacama and Coquimbo regions, Boric on the center (specially in the capital Santiago and the port city of Valparaíso) as well as the far south from were he is natural, Kast won in the south, specially in the parts affected by Indigenist terrorism since he strongly opposed it.

After the first round, the leftist parties that had other candidates started to support Boric and the parties of the center-right coallition Chile Vamos, (renamed Chile Podemos + for the election) Independent Democratic Union (UDI), National Renewal (RN), Evópoli and PRI, supported Kast.

Franco Parisi invited Kast and Boric to his livestreaming show on YouTube, but only Kast assisted, the People's Party held an internal vote in which Kast won and one day before the second round Parisi stated that he supported Kast just because he won in the internal voting.

The youtuber and now deputy elect, Johannes Kaiser was used by the left to tear down Kast's campaign since an old video of Johannes was discovered in which he made a joke about the women of Germany that continue voting for mass immigration laws that bring rapist and affect them, he said 'and you wonder if the right to vote was a good idea'. This was used agaist Kast since Kaiser was elected as a Republican (from Kast's Party) he renounced one day after the controversy.

The left also allegued that Kast father was a Nazi, since he was a conscript soldier in the Germany Army on Second World War.

Both candidates moderated their proposals in order to obtain more center votes, Kast said he would not remove the Women's Ministry, the vaccine passports and wouldn't push Chile out of international organizations as many other proposals.

Boric said he wouldn't remove Carabineros de Chile, instead reform it, the rodeo sport, and many other proposals that were seen as far-left. Accusations of sexual harassment were viralized and his support Left Wing Terrorism in Chile since he had a photo from 2017 in which Senator Jaime Guzmán is shot, and he met with the assassin, Ricardo Palma Salamanca.

With a very polarized country in which supporters of Kast and Boric even fighted on the streets (Boric supporters attacked first), Kast lost the second round after winning the first one.
