During his campaign, Kast, 55, proposed different strategies to protect life from conception to natural death, to reinforce the preferential right of parents to educate their children, and to recognize the culture and identity of indigenous people.
In his campaign, Boric, of the Apruebo Dignidad alliance, promised to incorporate a comprehensive feminist perspective, to implement such policies as "legal, free and safe abortion on demand," and changes to the gender identity law.
Boric is 35 years old, the minimum age to run for president. He is single and studied law at the University of Chile, but did not receive a degree.
As president of the Student Center of the Faculty of Law, he led the takeover of one of the university buildings to demand the departure of the dean at that time.
In 2011, he became spokesman for the Chilean Student Confederation during student protests in which thousands of young people took to the streets demanding educational reforms.
Boric is in his second term as a representative in the Chamber of Deputies and during the civil unrest of 2019 he signed the "Agreement for Peace" to accept the demands of citizens regarding the lack of public policies for a more decent life, which led to the Constitutional Convention now working on a new constitution.
