Over 1,000 people and leaders of all the opposition parties took to the streets to demand that a new constitution be written to replace the one made during the Augusto Pinochet dictatorship (1973-1990).

"After months of police repression and brutality, today Chile is more united than ever," leftist Broad Front Party (FA) president Beatriz Sanchez  assured.

Fuad Chahin, president of the Christian Democracy, underlined the festive character of the closing of the 'Approval' campaign in front of the government palace.

Similar acts were carried out by the supporters of the Approval in various communes and cities.

The 'Rejection' supporters culminated in Santiago, a motorized caravan that begun in Puerto Montt city on Monday.

Simultaneously, the publicity in radio stations and media ceased today, giving way to the beginning of a 48-hour stage of citizen reflection.

As of Friday, polling stations will be under the control of military personnel who will be in charge of their custody, security, and the application of sanitary measures.
