The 35 year-old congressman will face far-right candidate Jose Antonio Kast, a politician who defends the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet (1973-1990), denies the human rights violations committed during that regime and favors pardoning repressors.

Serrat, who was banned in Chile during the dictatorship, will perform in Santiago in November 2022, as part of his announced farewell tour.

Prominent figures from the world of politics, economics, science and the arts have expressed their support for the candidate of the left-wing “Apruebo Dignidad” (I Approve Dignity) coalition, in recent days.

“I am concerned about what is happening in your country, where a man named Kast, an admirer of General Pinochet, wants to become a president,” Glover said in a video.

More than 15 million Chileans are called to elect on Sunday, December 19, the president for the 2022-2026 period, in elections that are expected to be tough.

With events in Santiago’s different neighborhoods, the two aspirants to La Moneda Palace closed their campaign on Thursday, on the last day of the legal propaganda for the election runoff.
