Following poor results for the progressive leftist Humanist Party (PH) in municipal elections held over the weekend, member of the Chamber of Deputies and presumptive party presidential candidate Pamela Jiles announced that she would not be contesting the November election.

  • In early opinion polling, Jiles had been battling with presumptive Communist Party candidate Daniel Jadue for first place. Her withdrawal leaves a large gap of support on the left. This could either be assumed by Jadue, making him a real force to be reckoned with come the first-round of the election.
  • Alternatively, Jiles' support could swing towards the eventual candidate from the centre-left Constituent Unity alliance when they are selected in a primary election on 4 July.
  • The strong result for independents and the far-left in the Constitutional Convention election over the weekend has raised awareness that a run-off between a centre-left and centre-right candidate is not a guaranteed scenario come the November election.
