ABSTRACT
The article discusses local democracy and political participation in post-authoritarian Chile. After the restoration of democracy to the country in 1990, Chile has enjoyed a period of relative stability in terms of politics, economics, as well as fa significant drop in the level of poverty. The country has also promoted the idea of increasing the direct participations of citizens in the political decision-making process. In the future, the Chilean government should focus on changing the bi-nominal voting system so as to give more power to municipalities which, in turn, will be better able to focus the concerns and welfare of the people.
