santiago - Billionaire and former president Sebastian Piñera is once again the new Head of State of Chile. He won the presidential election Sunday of the center-left politician Alejandro Guillier, with more than 54 percent of the votes, reports the electoral council. Guillier congratulated his announcement of the official result of his conservative competitor.

The 68-year-old Piñera will join as president in March. He held the position from 2010 to 2014. The Chilean constitution states that after a term of four years, a president can not immediately apply again. Piñera succeeds the left-wing president Michelle Bachelet, who replaced him in 2014.
