Libertarian Javier Milei to become Argentina’s next president

Post available in: English

The ruling party’s presidential candidate, Peronist and current Minister of Economy of Argentina, Sergio Massa, acknowledged on Sunday the victory of his libertarian and far-right contender, Javier Milei, in the second round of elections in the country. The candidate of Libertad Avanza surpassed Massa in the ballotage by almost 8 points. The support received in the country’s interior, especially in Córdoba and Mendoza, was decisive, it was reported.

Almost 50 minutes before the time announced for the release of official data, Massa appeared on the stage of the bunker set up in the Chacarita neighbourhood of Buenos Aires to acknowledge the defeat and congratulate the new head of State. “Argentines chose another path, and from tomorrow, the responsibility of giving guarantees on the political, social and economic functioning is of the elected president”, he assured.

Defending the banners of social security, public education and Argentina’s 40 years of democracy, Massa delivered a short speech from his campaign bunker that contrasted with that of Milei, who has not yet spoken.

Argentines voted this Sunday in a run-off presidential election between the Peronist Minister of Economy Massa and the libertarian Milei in a close election in a climate of extreme tension.

Amid a severe economic crisis, the electoral campaign developed between anger towards traditional politics represented by Massa and fear of Milei’s disruptive proposals.
