Chile’s Constitutional Convention will start to wrap up its work next week as three special groups begin to weed out any inconsistencies in the draft charter and hammer out its final details.

Starting on May 17, a committee will begin to proof-read the charter for any contradictions or errors. Another body will start to write a preamble with the aim of introducing the document’s main principles, while a third group will vote on articles governing the transition period to the new constitution.
