After his surprise election victory last week, Chile’s new socialist millennial president Gabriel Boric has set up an Instagram account to show his Brownie, his “first dog” Brownie.  

Boric won the December 19 Presidential Election by over ten points, becoming the youngest leader of a South American country. 

He created an Instagram account to post pictures of his Brownie speaking with furry foreign companions. 

The first entry on the account reads: “I accept to take the challenge presented by popular choice. 

“I promise not to only watch out for the dogs’ rights and needs, but also for the animals in Chile. 

Brownie is settling down into his new life with the spotlight. Posts later show Brownie speaking to Buenos Dias a Todas in Chile, a breakfast TV show. He was also congratulated by Dylan, President of Argentina, on his victory.

Mr Boric stormed to victory in Chile’s presidential election beating out Jose Antonio Kast, 55, a free-market firebrand likened to former US president Donald Trump.  

Mr Kast, who has a history of defending Chile’s past military dictatorship,, had tried unsuccessfully to scare voters that his young, inexperienced opponent would upend Chile’s vaunted record as Latin America’s most stable, advanced economy.

Boric was two points ahead, but he did not secure the majority of votes. The two candidates will now be fighting for the head-to-head title. 

Boric managed to turn the tide in a wider margin than the pre-election polls predicted. He expanded beyond Santiago as his capital and attracted voters from rural areas that did not support extreme political views.

Supporters of left-wing millennial presidential candidate Gabriel Boric celebrated on the streets of Chile's capital of Santiago after his election win on December 19

Gabriel Boric, the left-wing candidate for president of the millennial generation, was celebrated in Santiago on Sunday after his victory.

After leading demonstrations calling for better education, Mr Boric was one of several people elected to Congress in 2014. 

On Sunday, an additional 1.2million Chileans voted, compared with the first round. This boosted turnout to almost 56 percent, which is the highest level since 2012. 

Boric has pledged to “bury” the neoliberal economic system left behind by Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship from 1973-1990 and to raise taxes on the super rich to increase social services, combat inequality and protect the environment.  

In Latin America, which has seen ideological divides rise during the coronavirus pandemic and are now reversing, his victory will likely be felt across the region. A decade of economic growth exposed decades-old deficiencies in healthcare and increased inequality, making them among the most dangerous in the world.
