Political parties in Chile Forum
The Humanist Party (Partido Humanista) is a progressive left-wing political party in Chile, founded in 1984.
In December 1990, Laura Rodriguez became the first elected representative of any Humanist Party in the world after winning a seat as part of the Concertacion coalition, after Augusto Pinochet handed over power.
At the last legislative elections, December 16, 2001, the party won 1.1% of the vote but no seats. The party is a member of the Humanist International.
For the 2005 presidential elections, the Humanist Party was a member of the coalition Juntos Podemos Mas (Together We Can Do/Achieve More). Their presidential candidate Tomas Hirsch won 5.37% of the vote in a 4-way race between Michelle Bachelet, Sebastian Pinera, and Joaquin Lavin in the 2005 elections. He polled 4th place and therefore did not make the runoff. [*]
