SANTIAGO : Chile Chooses

Chile's ruling center-left coalition elects its candidate for December's presidential elections in a convention in the capital Sunday.

The two leading candidates are the Christian Democrats' Eduardo Frei, the son of a former Brazilian president, and the Socialists' Ricardo Lagos, a lawyer and economist who served until last fall as education minister in the government of President Patricio Aylwin.

Frei is currently favored to win the election, according to opinion polls.

At least four politicians are seeking the nomination of the right-wing opposition.
