President Michelle Bachelet, admitted that she considered in the past, the possibility to continue serving at the UN instead of assuming a new presidential candidacy. But finally took the path to La Moneda for the second time.
Her statements are part of the documentary “Her Story” from BBC, which will show how women are taking charge and leading in an often male-dominated world.
According to El Mercurio, at the interview the Head of State assured that was because of her convictions that she decided returning to Chile, preceded by a process of reflection, where she also took into account her permanency at UN Women.
“I felt a sensation, saying to me “you should stay at the UN”, but finally I decided to return, due to my convictions. I came back due to my ideals, and I thought: I’ll come back to do something meaningful in favor of the people“, Bachelet stated.
Michelle Bachelet appears at the documentary together with Hillary Clinton and other personalities like the Swedish Chancellor, Margot Wallström, the president of Lithuania, Dalia Grybauskaitë, and the sarpanch (the equivalent of mayor) of her village Soda in India, Chhavi Rajawat.
