    On Sunday, a group of student leaders elected four years ago promising reform, will face re-election as Chile goes to the polls.

    Chileans will select new leaders in a general election on Sunday, including a new president.

    But many say they have lost trust in politicians after a series of corruption scandals.

    Four years ago, a group of former student leaders ran for Congress, vowing to improve politics. Now, some are pleading for more time to make the changes that they promised.
