Other rMedia | SeafoodSource: FAO: Global seafood trade has slowed

Tuesday, September 06, 2022

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Chile rejects new constitution that threatened salmon farming

Tuesday, September 06, 2022

With 99% of the votes counted, 61.9% of voters have rejected Chile’s new constitution, while only 38.1% supported it, in a blow to the country’s president, Gabriel Boric.

Boric had hoped to replace a 41-year old constitution that had been imposed by dictator Augusto Pinochet. Accepting the result, Boric admitted that voters “were not satisfied with the constitutional proposal that the convention presented to Chile.”

However, Boric is not giving up his hopes to change the constitution, stating that the result shows leaders must “work with more determination, more dialogue, more respect” to come up with a new charter that “unites us as a country.”
