Chile gets ready for elections

Polls suggest a very distinct possibility for Pinera to win Chile's elections.

     

    Voters in Chile will choose between two significantly different candidates to lead their country - a wealthy businessman or a leftist former president.

    The latest polls show Sebastian Pinera, Chile's sixth richest man, with the slimmest of leads over Eduardo Frei, the democratic coalition candidate.
