Chile's Boric vows change after constitution rejected

STORY: "We have to listen to the voice of the people. Not just today, but the last intense years we've lived through," Boric said. "That anger is latent, and we can't ignore it."

While nearly 80% of Chileans voted to draft a new constitution in 2020, nearly 62% of voters rejected the new text with 99.74 percent of ballot boxes counted.

The left-wing president said he would work with congress and different sectors of society to draft another text with lessons from Sunday's rejection.

Center-left and right wing parties that promoted the reject campaign, have also agreed to negotiate to prepare a new text.
