Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

so, seems Uruguay likes sinovac is working particularly good. 97% reduction in death. https://www.emol.com/noticias/Internacional/2021/05/28/1022222/Uruguay-estudio-vacuna-Sinovac.html Think I would like to see the data on that.

Re: The New Constitution

one thing to point out, the large amount of people elected that do not come from the rich santiago neighborhoods or the political traditional families in Santiago. also there is a fairly big number that are from outside Santiago. That is something generally not reflect in the make-up of congress. Y...

Re: Election Constitution 2021

Why was she chosen instead of the two women from her party in the same district that each got more votes than her? She was the only one from that party (UDI), others in that list were from other parties. Independent lists swapped whatever opposite-gender candidate was next in %, but party lists pri...

Re: Election Constitution 2021

Can anyone explain this to me? Why was Claudia Castro elected in district 14? Chile Vamos gets 1 candidate, makes sense. But why the candidate with the least votes?? Gender quotes , she got swapped with Jaime Coloma who was the male candidate from her party with the least amount of votes among the ...

Re: Election Constitution 2021
