The dismissal of Chilean President Sebastián Piñera has fallen to 14 percent, the lowest figure since December 2019, when it was 12 percent according to the poll by the Plaza Pública Cadem.
According to the Chilean press, the poll found that government support for fighting the COVID-19 pandemic is 35 percent. In addition, concern about contracting the disease has risen by five points to 68 percent.
The poll also looked at the presidential race in Chile and the elections, which were postponed to May 15th and 16th due to the worsening epidemiological situation in the Latin American country.
With this in mind, MP Pamela Jiles from the Humanist Party (left) cites the intention to vote with 20 percent. They are followed by the mayor of Las Condes, Joaquín Lavín, and the mayor of Recoleta, Daniel Jadue, with 14 and 11 percent respectively.
In the event of a second round, Jiles would surpass all of his possible opponents, with the exception of Lavín, who remains the most competitive candidate on the right and with whom he would get 40 percent of the vote. According to the survey, 69 percent of the participants have not yet chosen who they would like to vote for on the election date.
