Young communist leaders Camila Vallejo and Karol Cariola have been elected to Chile’s parliament.

Socialist Michelle Bachelet won the first round of voting in Chile’s presidential election with nearly 47% but she failed to win outright and faces a run off against right wing rival Evelyn Matthei,  a minister in the centre-right government of Sebastian Pinera, who won 25%.,

A second round of voting will take place on 15 December with the left stronger in the parliament but short of a majority strong enough to change the constitution or the unrepresentative voting system.
