Both candidates will face off at the polls on December 19th, with two diametrically opposed projects at stake.
After receiving a series of proposals from its council of advisers, Boric presented an economic growth program, which plans to achieve a fiscal consolidation that allows stabilizing the debt, recovering employment, especially of women and young people, and modernizing the State.
The deputy expressed his commitment to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), cooperatives and free fairs, for which he announced short, medium and long-term support measures, including access to credit and participation in public purchases.
In the opinion of legislator Giorgio Jackson, a member of Boric’s campaign team, ideas were taken from other candidates with the desire to improve the proposal and achieve greater consensus, without changing the essence of the program presented in the first round that proposes ambitious transformations.
Boric came in second place in the November 21st elections, only two points less than the one nominated by the extreme right, but the polls indicate the first as the favorite to win.
