A ‘generational change’ is underway in Chile.   A youthful new government has been elected, led by 35-year-old President-elect Gabriel Boric.   Boric recently announced a female-dominated Cabinet, which includes the grand-daughter of former Socialist leader Salvador Allende. She will be the Minister of Defence.  And there are moves to limit lithium mining, which the world will be watching anxiously.
