Leftist Gabriel Boric wins Chile presidential election – BBC News (Me: Yessss)

Leftist candidate Gabriel Boric has won Chile’s presidential election after an early concession from his far-right rival, José Antonio Kast. Mr Kast conceded defeat barely an hour and a half after polls closed, and with around half of ballots counted. Early results show Mr Boric leading with 56% of the vote, and Mr Kast trailing with 45% in the run-off race. The election has been one of the most polarised in recent decades and comes after mass anti-government protests. At 35-years-old, Mr Boric will become one of the world’s youngest political leaders.
