Various international media mentioned Gabriel Boric’s victory in the presidential election which was held last Sunday.
Argentinian media Country was one of those who referred to the victory of the new President-elect of Chile, bringing his figure closer to the neighboring country, highlighting aspects such as “fanaticism” for the former football player. Beto Acosta, his taste for musicians Charly Garcia and his defense of Argentine sovereignty in Falkland Islands.
In an article, La Nación recalls an episode that took place in 2013 on Twitter, in which Boric replied to the British ambassador in Mexico, Jon Benjamin.
“Great midsummer photo in Falkland Islands with their happy penguins,” published the British representative, to which the Chilean legislator replied: “Malvinas viejo, Malvinas Argentinas“.
@JonBenjamin19 Malvinas viejo, Malvinas Argentinas.

In addition, journalistic records show: “The future bilateral relationship between the president-elect of Chile, Gabriel Boric, and the president of Argentina Alberto Fernández, looking promising, with a call between the two shortly after the student leader’s victory and congratulatory messages from all the Kirchnerist arches”.
“His mentions of Argentine culture and sport have proliferated on his social networks over the years“, recalls the article.
In that sense, his medium stood out when in 2017 Gabriel Boric demonstrated his musical taste for Argentine artist Indio Solari and when he added a greeting to Charly García for 70 years.
How incredible that in Chile Indio Solari is unknown https://t.co/qazzwE8yHc

Finally, it is also mentioned the use of the song “Charlie’s Salieris” from Leon Gieco during your campaign. It should be borne in mind that this artist expressed his support for the candidacy of Boric.
The wonderful León Gieco sent us good vibes and even dedicated a beautiful song to us. He asks us to be strong to work and unite people. That’s what we’re looking for, adding to, and continuing to add to everyone who wants to change Chile and all of Latin America. Thank you buddy! https://t.co/MBQcS2hxrd

Argentina gives me joy, a beautiful joy. Congratulations brethren!

A 9 seriously please. That he didn’t come to paddle against the tide of life like Silva or Sacha (who both appreciate his efforts), or to put on a show like Riascos (which neither of them can be grateful for). I ask you for half of Beto Acosta, half …
