|Chilean Presidential election, 1998|
|January 18-February 15, 1998|
|Candidate||Ricardo Lagos||Andrés Zaldívar|
|Candidate||Ernesto Platera||Anselmo Sule||Eduardo Serpa|
The Chilean Presidential election of 1998 was held on January 18 and February 15 in two rounds, with Ricardo Lagos emerging victorious in the runoff with 56.8% of the vote. The election was the third such held under the 1990 Constitution and, along with the elections to the Congress in March, returned power to the Chilean left under the left-wing PSDP and center-left PDS, which were formally in a coalition called People's Democratic Unity for the purposes of the election. This was the first election in which the right-wing parties formally ran a single candidate under the National Democratic Confederation ballot, in this case Andrés Zaldívar.
