SANTIAGO.- “They chose me as a candidate in order to defeat the right wing in December. That is what I am concerned with. That is my objective and that is what I am working on”.
This was the response given by the Concertación presidential candidate, Senator Eduardo Frei, after he was asked about the presidential campaign of Deputy Marco Enríquez-Ominami.
In response to excuses given by the opposition, the senator was also pushed not to move ahead on the change to a two-party system and indicated that there are other legislative priorities.
While referring to the matter, Frei stated that “the right has never agreed to change it in 18 years and I don’t think they are going to want to change now in two weeks”.
