Last quote by Marta Lagos

The big problem of the second phase is going to be voter turnout. Yesterday, we saw that only 49 percent of Chilean voters cast their ballots. That is the lowest participation rate in Chile since 1990 – the lowest in the region since democracy was restored. We are scraping bottom now, in terms of political representation. What is in play here is the construction of a democracy that will allow all citizens to be called on; the binomial law that is a leftover from Pinochet doesn't permit a representational system: that is what is at stake in these elections.feedback

Marta Lagos has most recently been quoted in an article called Chile's vote for change - Bachelet's drive for presidential re-confirmation. Marta Lagos said, “I'd say it is rather a searing failure of the right in Chile, because after just one term of a government of the right, power is being returned to the coalition that it removed from power. I believe that what comes across as a failure today is the right wing's extreme right option, with a candidate from a party made up of the oldest former members of the Pinochet government. We also see here a failure of 'pinochetismo', and there's an enormous demand to move towards the centre.”. Marta Lagos has been quoted a grand total of 3 times in 1 article.
