JUAN FLORES THE CHURCH-BACKED leader of Chiles Christian Democrat parry has won a landslide victory in the country's presidential elections last week.

Eduardo Frei who was the candidate for the governing centre-left coalition won 58 per cent of the vote more than twice that of his nearrest rival, the conservative Arturo Alessandri.

In a speech after the election results, Senor Frei said he wanted to be a leader "for all Chileans".

Senor Frei will succeed President Patricio Aylwin, who is barred from running for a second consecutive term.

He had been in office since 1990, when he ended the 17year dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet.
