"We are three months away from the biggest election in our history," SERVEL President Patricio Santamaria said as he announced the end of the nomination process.
On April 11, over 14 million people are eligible to elect 155 members of the Constituent Assembly. That same day, Chilean citizens also will vote for new governors, mayors, and city councilors.
"This election will be the most important one in the last 40 years," Santamaria added, recalling that having 22,000 candidates for the 2,768 contested positions is a record for Chilean electoral history.
In the next few hours, SERVEL will release the official list of candidates who had until Tuesday midnight to fill out the application form.
