Chile, Government

The government of Chile was based on the constitution of 1925 until a coup d’etat in 1973. Although it remained nominally in effect, most of the constitution’s provisions guaranteeing popular democracy and due process were suspended. A new constitution was approved in 1980 and enacted in 1981 but its major provisions were not fully implemented until 1989. All citizens aged 18 and older are entitled to vote.
