Communist Party deputy Karol Cariola, holds up a banner with the image of former dictator Augusto Pinochet, inside the congress, after a vote to reform the binomial voting system, in Valparaiso city, Northwest of Santigo January 20, 2015. The vote overturns a byzantine electoral system introduced by dictator Augusto Pinochet before he departed from power that has effectively excluded parties that do no belong to one of two leading coalitions and prevented either coalition from winning a significant majority in Congress. Pinochet, who ruled the South American country from 1973-1990, intended to ensure conservative parties retained a strong voice after the return to democracy. The new law also introduces quotas to increase the participation of women in Congress. Each party entering an election must ensure that no more than 60 percent of its candidates are just one gender. The banner reads: "Bye Binominal". REUTERS/Rodrigo Garrido (CHILE - Tags: POLITICS ELECTIONS CRIME LAW)
