    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.

    Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman reports from Santiago.
