Peronist Fernandez Wins the Argentine Presidential Election

Peronist Fernandez wins Argentine election. The candidate Alberto Fernandez swept to a first-round triumph in Argentina’s presidential election Sunday, official results showed, bringing to an end the crisis-plagued rule of market-friendly incumbent Mauricio Macri.

Fernandez, a 60-year-old law professor, had nearly 48 per cent of the votes — crossing the threshold for an outright victory — after 94 per cent of the votes had been counted, with centre-right incumbent Mauricio Macri trailing at 40.53 per cent.

To win outright, Fernandez required 45 per cent or 40 per cent with a 10 point margin over his nearest rival.

His win also caps a remarkable political comeback for his running mate, ex-president Cristina Kirchner, who will be his vice-president.

Thousands of ecstatic Fernandez supporters cheered and danced outside his Frente de Todos party headquarters in Buenos Aires.

“It’s a great day for Argentina,” a smiling Fernandez told reporters after exit polls and his own party’s tallies had given him victory.
