The List of the People (Spanish: La Lista del Pueblo) is a loose coalition of independent candidates that was created in Chile to participate in the 2021 elections for members of the Constitutional Convention.

The pact intents to represent the people that protested in the Estallido social, the civil unrest that started the process to create a new Constitution. Some of the policies agreed between the candidates participating in the list is the commitment to an "environmental, egalitarian and participatory state", the end to the current private pension system, rejection of the TPP-11 and "end to the exploitation of the environment."[15] The coalition presents an anti-establishment and anti-elitism, especially regarding the right-wing government of Sebastián Piñera and its political allies. The group has also manifested their intention to hold popular assemblies for the decisions their members will present in the Constitutional Convention.[15]

The List of the People was one of the surprises of the election, obtaining the third largest number of votes and 27 seats, surpassing even the Constituent Unity, the main centre-left alliance.[16][17][18]

Composition
