Question #185297

what Is different about the ways the Chilean military and chávez came to power

Expert's answer

This idea built on the fact that Venezuela’s army—like that of Peru and other Andean countries but unlike those of Chile, drew its officer recruits from the lower middle class, rather than from the upper class. As a result, young officers such as Chavez were more open to left-wing ideas, such as those that in the late 1960s and early 1970s led the Peruvian and some other armed forces (Panama, Honduras, etc.) to seize power in military coups in order to introduce left-wing policies, including land reform and nationalization of the banks and energy sector.
