Bachelet favourite as Chile heads to polls

Former President Michelle Bachelet is all set to return to power as Chileans gear up for polls.

    In a few hours time, Chileans will start heading to the polls - and it looks like former President Michelle Bachelet will return to power.

    Almost all of the candidates running for office are campaigning on the same platform - the reduction of inequality and better access to health and education.
