SANTIAGO (Reuters) - Chilean conservative presidential candidate Sebastian Pinera kept his lead in voter preference ahead of next months' first round election, and was seen beating his two closest rivals in a likely run-off, pollster CEP said Wednesday.

Pinera has support of 32.8 percent of voters in the November 19 election, up from 31.3 percent in CEP's last poll on September 1. Centre-left Senator Alejandro Guillier has 13.8 percent, from 14.5 percent previously, while leftist Beatriz Sanchez slipped about 3 percentage points in the poll to about 7.0 percent.
