SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - Former President Michelle Bachelet is the front runner and conservative Evelyn Matthei is a distant second going into Sunday's election for Chile's presidency. Seven other candidates could push the vote into a Dec. 15 runoff. Here are some of the top two candidates' main proposals:
BIG CHANGES: Bachelet proposes a $15 billion spending program, and has answered recent mass student protests by vowing to increase corporate taxes to partly pay for an education overhaul. She also plans to improve health care, legalize abortion in some cases, and launch a national debate on gay marriage.
