Allende Wins Elections is a Timeline Event that can occur between 1970 and 1973.
While the event is happening, several educated immigrants may arrive on the island every time a ship arrives since the nationalized industries force many well-taught Chileans to look elsewhere for work opportunities.
Salvador Allende was elected president of Chile in 1970, becoming the first Marxist to be elected president in Latin America. His presidency was marked by the nationalization of many large industries, clandestine efforts by the US to oust him, and strikes by company owners. In 1973, in the midst of a military coup, Allende was killed and Augusto Pinochet replaced him. Whether his death was a homicide or a suicide remains controversial to this day.
