Her first nameEdit

If her first name is Veronica, why doesn't she uses that name? is it because Michelle it's more of a white European name?, or is it because she feels she would be discriminated by her Spnish name?, I'm a Chilean and for all I know we call ourselves by our first name.190.47.248.51 (talk) 21:17, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

I don't know man, I'm chilean as well and everybody calls me by my second "first name". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.160.68.57 (talk) 22:47, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Just FYI, she answered that question in an interview... Michelle was the name preferred by her mother while Veronica was the name preferred by her father. Before she was born, both decided to call her Michelle but when her father went to register her, she put the name "Veronica Michelle" as a kind of joke. But in her family, she was always called just Michelle. And although the first name is the most usual to call someone, there are a lot of people called by their middle name... just like Miguel Juan Sebastián Piñera Echeñique. --B1mbo (talk) 02:37, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

StyleEdit

Although well-written, this article makes excessive use of EM dashes, giving it a more journalistic appearance. I have replaced 2 or 3 of the least appropriate pairs of EM dashes, where commas or parentheses,( ), would be quite adequate and less dramatic. For the remaining EM dashes, spaces before and after each one might prove more aesthetic (and probably more effective) than the single spaces offered here. Ombudswiki (talk) 15:14, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

End of presidencyEdit

The article does not explain why Michelle Bachelet's presidency ended. Her name is not even on the Chilean presidential election, 2009–2010 article other than as the Previous President implying she did not attempt to retain the seat. Was she termed out? If not or did she chose not to run? --Marc Kupper|talk 18:52, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Eduardo Frei Ruiz-Tagle was the Concertacion candidate. A President of Chile may not be re-elected immediately (without a break). Rd232 talk 19:06, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
The article now explains why she left office in 2010. Dominic's Fire (talk) 21:36, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. I'm not sure why someone immediately reverted the edit explaining why she left office. I restored that though then then removed the sentence about that it is unknown if she'll run again. That sentence seemed unenclyclopediac. It would work if a reliable source can be found where someone asked if she plans to run and then we can source her response. --Marc Kupper|talk 23:30, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Peacock?Edit

An IP user tagged this article as having {{Peacock}} words back in May 2010. Can we find any specific examples and remove/ref them? - Ruodyssey (talk) 11:13, 11 November 2010 (UTC)


I was wondering the same thing. And it looks like it is the same IP that added a poorly written criticism section with no sources.
I suggest we remove the template and let the IP point out here on the talk page, what's wrong with the article.

Earthquake and Tsunami 27 Feb 2010Edit

I am SURPRISED there is nothing in this article about the earthquake that hit a couple of weeks before she was to leave office. More so because her neglect to have sounded the alarm caused hundreds of people to die when a tsunami hit the coastline. There are currently criminal proceedings against her in Chile by these victim's families. It is also controversial because she is said to be receiving special treatment and not questioned formally or according to law by the fiscal (equivalent to the US's term D.A.).

There are other significant controversial events that occurred during her presidency that are not introduced in this article... it tends to dodge and pain an unrealistic picture instead of a unbiast real one. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.71.220.91 (talk) 16:40, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Hodge-podgeEdit

The presidency overview is a hopeless hodge-podge in which the important and lasting contributions of Bachelet's government are drowned in all sorts of insignificant detail, with far too much attention being paid to the vagaries of the highly-politicized Chilean media.77.162.130.139 (talk) 23:43, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. It needs more structure. Will do when I have the time. Pristino (talk) 19:48, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

19 December 2013Edit

I made the most recent two edits; didn't realize I had logged myself out. Sorry. Quis separabit? 23:37, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

cabinetEdit

we should use Template:Infobox Chile Cabinet here, rather than Template:Infobox cabinet directly, since the former introduces more uniformity across Chilean president articles. Frietjes (talk) 15:20, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Request for CommentsEdit

There is an RfC on the question of using "Religion: None" vs. "Religion: None (atheist)" in the infobox on this and other similar pages.

The RfC is at Template talk:Infobox person#RfC: Religion infobox entries for individuals that have no religion.

Please help us determine consensus on this issue. --Guy Macon (talk) 22:57, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Language skillsEdit

Her extraordinary language skills cited in the article are not trustwothy as souces are organizations to which she have links. These organizations (Chilean goverment, UN) have probably recieved her CV and have an interest in protraying her in a possitive light. We need some scrutiny into this.
