Chile’s boric reshuffles cabinet after new constitution rejected

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Chile’s Boric reshuffles cabinet after new constitution rejected” – below is their description.

Left-wing Chilean President Gabriel Boric has announced a cabinet reshuffle, incorporating members of the traditional centre-left just days after a constitutional referendum he had championed faced a crushing defeat.

The move could alienate members of his political base, who see it as a concession to politics as usual.

Boric has said he plans to draft a new constitution with support from Congress and other political factions.

Al Jazeera’s Latin America Editor @Lucia Newman reports from Santiago, Chile.
