Giorgio Jackson Drago holds a civil engineering degree from the Pontificia Universidad Católica. From March 2014 to March 2022, he served as a member of Congress. He was president of the Student Federation at the Universidad Católica from 2010 to 2011 and spokesman of the Confederation of Chilean Students (CONFECH) during the student protests of 2011.
Giorgio Jackson Drago’s career demonstrates a vocation for politics and a connection with social movements. During the student protests of 2011, he was one of the figures best evaluated by the public and managed to present a central part of the demands before the Senate.
In 2013, he was elected member of Congress for District 10 in the Metropolitan Region. During his first term, which began in 2014, he was part of the Citizen Security Commission. He was later one of the founders of the Critical Neighborhoods Investigative Commission, which investigated the role of the police towards Chile’s most vulnerable sectors. He also formed the Future, Sciences, Technology, Knowledge and Innovation; Economy and Development; Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise; Consumer Protection and Tourism; Emergency, Disasters and Firefighters; Labor and Social Security; Treasury; and Ethics and Transparency standing committees.
During his second term as member of Congress, elected with the first majority in District 10, Giorgio Jackson Drago formed the Labor and Social Security, and Treasury standing committees, as well as the Special Investigative Committee on the actions of the administrative bodies in charge of supervising gaming casinos.
During his terms as a parliamentarian, Giorgio filed a total of 95 legal motions and actively participated in debates relevant for the country. His background of public commitment and his work as a parliamentarian were key to his appointment as Minister Secretary General of the Presidency in President Gabriel Boric’s Government, a position he assumed on March 11, 2022.
Macarena Lobos Palacios holds a law degree from the Universidad de Chile and a doctorate in law from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. She is an expert in the areas of tax, social security, and public policy. At the time of her appointment, she was serving as vice president of the Provisional Advisory Council, academic at the Pontificia Universidad Católica’s School of Government, and legal advisor to the decision-making council for parliamentary assignments.
With a long career in public service, Macarena has specialized in the legislative processing of projects related to economic and social public policies. In 2010, she took over as executive director of the Corporation for Latin American Studies’ (CIEPLAN) legislative advisory program, where she was in charge of establishing a link with parliamentarians to assist in the processing of projects of a socio-economic nature. Prior to this, she had a long career in the public sector that began in 1998 at the Labor and Social Welfare Ministry. From 2014, she served as legislative coordinator of the Treasury during the second administration of President Michelle Bachelet, who named her Treasury Undersecretary in 2017. In 2020, she joined the public spending committee panel of experts formed by the Treasury.
In her outstanding career, Macarena has also been an advisor on labor matters for entities such as the Labor Ministry and the Budget Directorate (DIPRES), where she served as legal advisor.
Her expertise in the development of public policies focused on social development, as well as in labor, economic, and public spending issues, have forged a path that now takes her to the position of Undersecretary General of the Presidency in the Government of President Gabriel Boric, in search of major agreements that would provide a better life for the people of Chile.
