Chile's new president Sebastian Pinera will be sworn in today, inheriting leadership of a government and a country still in natural disaster recovery.
He'll replace President Michelle Bachelet, who came under criticism for her handling of government response to the recent quake. Will the new president's pre-quake agenda see the light of day? We take a look at who Pinera is and what to expect from his leadership. Gideon Long, Chile correspondent for our partner the BBC, joins the conversation to give us more context and history about President Pinera.
