A Little History of Chile…

So honestly, not much of history of Chile during time period. One of the important events that occurred in 1958 was the election of President Jorge Alessandri. He ran as an independent and won approximately 31% of the votes. Wikipedia indicates that this election was voted through the electoral system which the winner must receive over 50% to automatically win the race. However, Alessandri winning 31% of the votes may have required both houses of the National Congress to vote on who to become President out of the two candidates who received the most votes. More detailed information about this election can be found on Wikipedia – Chilean Presidential Election, 1958.
