Chileans began the second round of voting in an election which could result in the first female president in the country's history.
Socialist paediatrician Michelle Bachelet, a former political prisoner and defence minister for the governing centre-left coalition, held a small-to-moderate lead in most polls over Sebastian Pinera, a Harvard-educated economist who pioneered the credit card business in Chile.
If she wins, Bachelet would become Chile's first female president and would continue the dominance of the coalition that took power at the end of the 1973-1990 dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet.
Bachelet won the first round of the presidential election on December 11 with 45.9 percent, but was forced into a run-off because she failed to top 50 percent. Pinera was second with 25.4.
In spite of their different political backgrounds and ideologies, both candidates to succeed popular President Ricardo Lagos have outlined strikingly similar basic goals, promising to continue the two-decade-long free market policies that have made Chile's economy one of the healthiest in the region.
Chile's next president will be inaugurated on March 11, joining a team of Latin American leaders that includes leftists such as Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and newly-elected Evo Morales of Bolivia.
