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.
