Dr Javier Sajuria, Sebastian Pinera wins presidential run-off in Chile


Sebastian Pinera won Chile's presidential run-off election on Sunday, defeating centre-left senator Alejandro Guillier by 54.6 per cent to 45.4 per cent. Guillier conceded a "severe defeat" to his supporters as the result came in, reports ITV News. Dr Javier Sajuria, commenting on the results, said: “This is a huge victory for him. Pinera managed to gather a big majority of the votes from centre-left candidates (in the first round of the election). What happened here is that Pinera managed to mobilise non-voters in a way that we haven't seen since voluntary voting was started.”
