Political career

He ran for vice president in the 1989 election with Líber Seregni as presidential candidate, obtaining third place with 23% of votes.

Before the 2004 elections, Astori was announced to become Finance Minister if the Broad Front won. This is said to have turned centrist voters to choose the Broad Front, and the party received 51.7% of votes.


Astori has followed a fiscal conservative policy, but allowing increases in welfare, education and health care spending. He has been a supporter of trade pacts with the United States, the European Union, the People's Republic of China and India, with the Chilean "open regionalism" as a model.

Astori resigned from his ministry on September 18, 2008. His ministerial replacement was Álvaro García.
