(Bloomberg) -- The founder of a now defunct financial advisory firm that roiled Chile’s capital markets and a leader of a Stalinist offshoot of Chile’s communist party will be in the final list of nine candidates vying in the country’s presidential elections November.
Seven contenders registered with government electoral body Servel before the final cutoff on Monday night. One of those was Senate President Yasna Provoste, who won last week’s primary between traditional center-left parties.
