The former UDI deputy and current leader of the Republican Action Movement last year directly participated in the presidential election and were deducted from participating in the internal primary sectors of the sector and claimed that they were "not true". Now it's your chance to drive. "This is an alternative that we have open," he admitted.
José Antonio Kast does not exclude the possibility of participating in some possible primary elections in Chile. The presidential candidate will determine the right to vote in 2022.

On this occasion, he said that he did not believe that they were "real primary" because they were ultimately organized to "privilege the candidate, in this case, Sebastian Piñera", which was taken over by Manuel José Ossandón and Felipe Kast in those elections.
The shift of Kasta with respect to the primary coincides with its strengthening strategy in the sector, and that's what the analysts had for Criteria Research director Cristián Valdivieso.

In this strain set by Kast, his multiple statements derive from the most difficult part of the sector, which publicly criticizes the government in matters such as dealing with the Catrillan case or demanding even more tough immigration matters and pressuring La Moneda.
