MOSCOW, December 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Michelle Bachelet on the election as president of the Republic of Chile, South America, on Monday.

The Russian president noted in a congratulatory telegram that “convincing victory at the elections shows Bachelet’s high political authority and the trust of her compatriots to her.” Putin praised highly “constructive and mutually beneficial nature of friendly Russian-Chilean relations,” voicing hope for their further development.

The Russian president also congratulated Bachelet on coming Christmas and New Year.

A candidate from the left-wing electoral coalition New Majority, Michelle Bachelet, 62, was elected as president of Chile for the second time. In 2006 Bachelet became the first female president in the history of Chile and had ruled the country as long as her presidential term expired in 2010. According to the country’s constitution the president cannot run for the second presidential term in succession. In September 2010 she was appointed at the post of the executive director of the recently formed structure UN Women. She quitted this post in March 2013, when she decided to return in Chilean politics.
