Billionaire Sebastian Pinera took a smaller-than-expected lead in the first round of voting in Chile’s presidential election Sunday, throwing his victory in next month’s run-off into doubt and likely dealing a blow to this year’s rally in stocks. The opposition leader and former president has 36.7 percent of the vote with 97.8 percent of ballots counted, the electoral service said on its website Sunday.
After the slowest four years of growth since the early 1980s under the administration of President Michelle Bachelet, voters must decide if they want to consolidate her reform agenda, including free higher education, deepen it or swing to the right under Pinera. Opinion polls indicate the country will follow Peru and Argentina and choose a more business friendly candidate.
Chileans are voting in an election that is likely to usher billionaire Sebastian Pinera back into the presidency on pledges to cut taxes and double economic growth, though he probably won’t win by enough to avoid a second round on Dec. 17. Voting started at 8 a.m. local time (6 a.m. EST) Sunday and finishes at 6 p.m., with the first official results expected about one hour later from the Electoral Service. There are no exit polls in Chile. Congressional elections are being held at the same time.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
