Meteorology anticipates that election day will be with “extreme temperatures” and prepares an alert

In the absence of four days for the elections, the Meteorological Directorate of Chile (DMC) announced that this weekend the maximum temperatures in the central zone will rise significantly, which will reach 36 degrees Celsius in some parts of the Metropolitan Region.The agency issued yesterday a “high temperature warning” that informs that the heat will be perceived from Saturday morning to Sunday night between the regions of Coquimbo and the Biobío, both in valleys and in the foothills.” It is very likely that on Friday we will issue an alert for extreme temperature events because the thresholds would be exceeded, and that it will extend from Valparaíso to the Biobío region. And the alert would be especially for Sunday,” the meteorologist of the National Analysis Center of the DMC, Arnaldo Zúñiga, told Emol.The specialist added that the conditions will be similar to those registered for the first round, when in the capital 34° were registered. For that day, the Ministry of Transport confirmed yesterday that it will enable 2,150 free locomotion services throughout the country, which in Santiago, Valparaíso and Concepción includes its urban railway systems. The Transantiago, meanwhile, will have its usual rate but with routes and frequencies of working days, to facilitate the arrival at the polling places.” We want all opinions and all voices to be heard with force on Sunday,” said President Sebastián Piñera, who said they took all security and order measures to guarantee the electoral process. Gabriel Boric and José Antonio Kast toured sectors of Valparaíso and La Araucanía yesterday on the eve of today’s campaign closing. The president of RN Francisco Chahuán foresaw a narrow arrival in the runoff. “Even, this may not be resolved on Sunday, that the difference is so minuscule that this can go to the electoral courts,” he told Radio Agricultura.Kast added that these are “part of our system” and added that “many elections” have been defined in them. “Therefore, if the difference were very tight clearly either candidate can do it,” he added. Boric was shocked. “It’s manual what the far right is doing… it’s exactly what (Donald) Trump did,” he said of the baseless accusations the Republican began to slip into the campaign before being defeated by Joe Biden in 2020. “They are absolutely unleashed and I call on our adherents not to do the same,” he said. Kast, meanwhile, said that today or tomorrow a hair test would be carried out to reveal whether or not he consumes drugs, and again called on Boric to perform one that is not urine, “so that we get out of doubt and that it does not happen again that we catch him lying again,” he accused. The deputy, who said that one would be made if Kast paid for it, regretted that he insists on “hinting that there is consumption of illicit substances,” which he denies. Boric was accompanied in Viña del Mar by the mayor of Valparaíso, Jorge Sharp, with whom they fell out after the latter’s rejection of the political agreement that allowed in November 2019 to promote the Constitutional Convention. “Any difference is left in the freezer. The important thing now is to defend the process of changes,” said the former Frente Amplista. In Valparaiso, Boric was rebuked by relatives of prisoners of the revolt, who criticized him for not seeking justice in the face of the trials. The candidate remained in his vehicle without answering them. In that commune he met with former DC candidate Yasna Provoste, who had been estranged from his campaign. “I support very strongly and clearly the transformations that Chile needs and that Gabriel Boric is commissioning,” he told him. Foreign Ministry and BacheletIn the criticism of pro-government deputies, the Government expressed its respect for the decision of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, to announce that she will vote for Gabriel Boric. “We see no inconvenience in the former president, like any Chilean, expressing her electoral preference,” said Minister Andrés Allamand. President Piñera added that “as a citizen you have the right to express your opinion.” Although it had planned to carry out a process last Monday, the People’s Party (PDG) announced yesterday that today it will hold a plebiscite through the internet among its militants to define whether or not they carry out a consultation to explain which candidate they will support for the second round this Sunday. Leaders defended this pre-consultation stating that several adherents demanded that a vote be taken if it was necessary to express support.
