The second plebiscite in just over a year to decide whether to change Chile’s current Constitution is approaching and, according to the polls, it seems to follow the same path as the first one.
The commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the military coup in Chile invites us to reflect on the collapse of the republican, democratic and presidential order.
The country’s political context contributed to create a favorable scenario for the Republicans as the discussion has been marked by the government’s inability to control security and immigration issues.
The latest polls show an increase in rejection of the Constituent Assembly, even surpassing approval in some cases, in addition to the disenchantment in the media and social networks.
Now that the Constitutional Convention is beginning to deliver the first results of its proposal, the possibility of rejection in the exit plebiscite has been introduced in public opinion. It is time to discuss some possible alternatives.
