On Sunday, an overwhelming majority of Chileans voted to scrap the country's Pinochet-era constitution. However, this is only the first step in a long transformation process, writes Johan Ramirez.

Q24N – More than 77% of Chileans are in favor of redrafting the country’s constitution, partial voting results from the national referendum show.

With 5.23% of the votes counted, “the Approval option obtained 77.27% and the Rejection option, 22.73%,” Chile’s electoral service said in a statement on Sunday.

With over 36% of the votes counted, 77.71%t were in favor of redrafting the constitution, while 22.29% were against it.

Chile’s President Sebastian Pinera celebrated the participation of citizens in the referendum saying that the new constitution would unite people.

“I am deeply grateful to all Chileans who today freely expressed their will through the ballot box to choose the option of a new Constitution,” Pinera said in a Sunday address, adding that “the current Constitution has divided us, but as of today we will all collaborate so that the new constitution is the great framework of unity.”

On Sunday morning, millions of people turned out to vote in the referendum in Chile on whether to redraft the country’s Pinochet-era constitution. Rewriting the country’s constitution was one of the central demands of protesters last year.
