Calls for fairness ahead of Chile's elections

Voters call for fairness ahead of Chile's elections as it is revealed that 1 percent own 30 percent of country's wealth.

    With its growing free market economy and low unemployment, Chile is regarded as a Latin American success story.

    But as Sunday’s presidential elections approach, there are calls from voters for resources to be more evenly shared.

    It's emerged that the richest one percent own more than 30 percent of the nation’s wealth.

    Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman reports from the remote region of Aysen.
