The Minister Secretary General of the Chilean Government, Camila Vallejo, has highlighted that the voting day for this Sunday’s constitutional referendum has taken place “calmly and with high participation”.

“We have a positive balance, not only because of the participation but because of how our institutions are working, both the Servel (Electoral Service) and the polling places,” Vallejo pointed out, according to the newspaper ‘El Mercurio’.

The Government spokeswoman expressed her gratitude “to all those who are contributing to making this event participatory, safe, calm and democratic”. “From the Government we have made efforts so that the day takes place in tranquility”, she added.

Vallejo has highlighted the participation of the electoral roll abroad where “there are already closure of tables in some countries, such as South Korea, New Zealand, China and the Philippines.” “This process has been carried out calmly and with high participation,” he explained.

For his part, the general director of Carabineros, Ricardo Yanez, stressed that the development of the day “has been completely normal.” “We are reinforcing those units that need or require more capabilities in order to expedite this process,” he indicated.

Regarding the roadblocks that have occurred in the South Macrozone, Yanez pointed out that the area “has a totally different procedure: There is a Chief of National Defense who is coordinating with the authorities and with Carabineros. We have a extraordinary deployment there”.

“Indeed, there have been places where there have been roadblocks, but it has quickly been cleared to give it normality and that all people can attend to pay (…). We are committed with all our capacities,” he stressed.
