Michelle Bachelet

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) – Chile’s once and future President Michelle Bachelet won Sunday’s runoff election after promising profound changes in society in response to years of street protests.

With 90% of the votes counted, Bachelet had an unbeatable 62% to 38% for the center-right’s Evelyn Matthei, who conceded defeat. A moderate socialist, Bachelet served as president in 2006-2010.
