AQ Podcast | Chile: Gabriel Boric’s Conundrum

By AQ Online

As Chile nears a plebiscite on a second proposal to replace the dictatorship-era constitution, AQ delves into the nation’s political state of play.

Chile’s new constitutional proposal is ready and will be put to a plebiscite on Dec. 17. The document was received earlier week by President Gabriel Boric after a mostly right-wing  Constitutional Council drafted the text. This episode does a political overview of the country. We discuss what this new constitution would change, if approved, and look more broadly at the status of the left and the right, at Gabriel Boric’s political future and the state of the economy.
