RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - More than 13 million Chileans are called to the polls this Sunday to elect the first governors of Chile's 16 regions in a second round of voting, the results of which will be examined as a key to a future presidential race.
This is the first time Chileans will elect their regional leaders; until now, governors were appointed by the executive branch, so these elections represent a historic step toward decentralization.
There will be no second round of voting in three of the country's 16 regions, as the winners were elected in the first . . .
