SANTIAGO — The granddaughter of the late socialist President Salvador Allende has lost her first political race after a recount.

Maya Fernandez Allende lost in Santiago’s Nunoa district by 30 votes to incumbent Mayor Pedro Sabat.

Initial results last month had shown Mrs. Fernandez Allende ahead, and Mr. Sabat recognized her victory.

But his party demanded a recount.

Chile’s electoral committee said Tuesday that Mr. Sabat got 34,247 votes to Mrs. Fernandez Allende’s 34,217 votes.

Mr. Sabat has won the district three other times in 16 years.

Salvador Allende was a democratically elected socialist president who was ousted in a 1973 military coup led by Gen. Augusto Pinochet.
