Gabriel Boric: Look who is the new president of Chile |  Peace

Chile’s President-elect Gabriel Boric is a 35-year-old former student leader who has led his campaign based on the “Hope” speech and championing the drive for change. with the promise of strengthening the welfare state in the country

“We represent an impending process of change and transformation (but definitely) with the necessary gradation,” he once said during the campaign, intending to allay fears that his election could mark the beginning of a period of chaos.

Borich has, as he put it, a “lighthouse illuminating a desert island” tattoo on his left arm and he relaxes reading, but his real life is that of a leftist activist. It was in his hometown of Punta Arenas (south), on the shores of the Strait of Magellan, that this politician began to dream of this model of prosperity for his country.

Boric ran for President of Chile at the minimum age required and was the youngest of seven candidates in a succession dispute over the conservative Sebastian Piñera. He will be the youngest President of Chile in history. His candidacy represents the “I Endorse Dignity” coalition, which brings together Frente Amplio and the Communist Party.

His biggest criticism of democracy after the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet (1973-1990) is that continued a liberal economic model that left the middle and lower class in debt to pay for education, health care, and private pensions

Many supporters and critics have seen him become a political leader since 2011, when he led student protests for free education in one of the most expensive countries in the world.

“Our generation burst into politics in 2011, shedding some of the fears generated by dictatorship and transitional pacts,” he said.

His speech referred to the military regime of Pinochet (1973–1990) and the Concertacion, the center-left coalition that ruled much of a 31-year democracy since 1990, and today it has collapsed, discredited as a reflection of a crisis of institutional trust.

At the last stage of the pre-election race, the young candidate changed his image of a disobedient university student to that of a “well-bred student”, which corresponded to the moderate tone and negotiator of this new stage.

During his time as President of the Federation of Students at the University of Chile 10 years ago, he explains the beginning of the model questions that were important to “challenge to make Chile a more just country,” he said.

At the time, Chilean democracy was only 20 years old, and students began to question the “development model”, wondering why what we thought should be social rights was privatized; why education was a privilege and not a right, why health is for the rich and not for the poor, because pensions have become a business, ”he said.

During the social unrest that rocked Chile in October 2019, Boric played a leading role in signing a political agreement – from which the Communist Party, which now supports him, withdrew – to hold a plebiscite to reform the constitution inherited from the dictatorship.

Borich’s critics reproach him for his inexperience, his alliance with the Communist Party, lack of higher education, despite the fact that he graduated from law schooland your posture also changes.

In this sense, their opponents in the presidential race have unearthed Boric’s tweet welcomes Nicolas Maduro as Venezuela’s new president following the death of Hugo Chavez in March 2013… During the campaign, however, the young candidate focused on denouncing the regime and rebuked the Chilean communist leader’s compliment on Daniel Ortega’s recent victory in Nicaragua.

“In our government, the commitment to democracy and human rights will be complete, without the support of any dictatorship or autocracy, no matter who it hurts,” he recently wrote on his social media.

His supporters include renowned artists such as director Pablo Larrain, director of No (2012) and Jackie (2016), the son of the Minister of Justice of the Pinera government and whose family belongs to the so-called right-wing elite.

Single and originally from Punta Arenas, in the extreme south of the country, Boric grew up in a family sympathetic to the Socialist and Christian Democratic parties.

“I come from Australian Patagonia, where a world begins where fairy tales and imaginations come together, to Estreito de Magalhães, which has inspired so many novels,” he said, proud of his region.

If he becomes president, he wants “something that would be quite obvious in Europe, namely the provision of a welfare state, so that everyone has the same rights, no matter how much money they have in their wallets,” he summed up.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
