In the elections held this Sunday 27 in Argentina, the candidate of the Frente de Todos (Front for All) Alberto Fernández was elected as the new president.

Alberto Fernandez wins the elections and is the president-elect of Argentina together with the former president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner as Vice President.  They obtained, according to the preliminary scrutiny, more than 48% of the votes.

As had previously been predicted, it defeated the incumbent party of Mauricio Macri and Miguel Ángel Pichetto, which reached little more than 40%.

Third, the Lavagna-Urtubey binomial received just over 6%, followed by the proposal of the Trotskyist left led by Nicolás del Caño and Romina del Plá, who totaled just over 2%.

Further back, with 1.7% of the votes the Front Nós, the retired officer Gómez Centurión along with ultra-conservative Cynthia Hotton and last José Luis Espert, accompanied on the ballot by Luis Rosales with 1.47% of the vote.

Axel Kiciloff’s triumph in the populous province of Buenos Aires was resounding and decisive. Cristina Fernandez’s former finance minister defeated current governor Vidal, the bulwark of the outgoing government, by an overwhelming 52-36%.

The Frente de Todos prevailed in most Argentine provinces, except in the City of Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Santa Fé, Córdoba, Entre Ríos and San Luis.

Participation was higher than in the primaries and reached more than 80%.

Fernández’s triumph represents the resounding rejection by Argentines of a model of adjustment, recession, unemployment and financial emptiness that characterized the management that is now coming to an end.

The victory also marks a turning point to stop the advance of retrograde forces in Latin America and the Caribbean, strengthen the progressive bloc and resume the path of regional integration.

The elected president and vice-president will take office on December 10, a moment that the popular sectors are anxiously awaiting, plunged as they are in a serious social emergency.
