The big surprise in the Chilean presidential elections was the result for
the Broad Front (FA), a heterogeneous left coalition headed by Beatriz
Sanchez. The FA candidate came in third, with 20% of the vote (just two
points short of making the second round).

The coalition also won 18 deputies and a senator, which is unheard of for
an anti-neoliberal force outside of the traditional parties.

*Viento Sur’*s *Brais Fernandez* spoke with* Luis Thielemann*, an activist
with Autonomous Left (one of the organisations with parliamentary
representation within the FA), about the elections and the rise of this new
left formation.
