On Sunday (19), the president of Argentina, Alberto Fernández, called for respect for democracy as the country held its second round of elections. The government candidate Sergio Massa and far-right opponent Javier Milei were competing to become the next head of state.
Fernández cast his vote at around 9:45 am in a polling station at the Catholic University in Buenos Aires’ Puerto Madero neighborhood. He urged Argentines to “respect and take great care of democracy” and expressed hope that the election day would be peaceful and without doubt.
In recent days, Milei’s party, A Liberdade Avança, had made comments about possible fraud in the Argentine elections. However, Fernández refused to answer questions from journalists about this topic due to restrictions determined by the Electoral Court.
The election was significant as it marked the end of Fernández’s term after he chose not to run for re-election. Around 35.8 million Argentines were eligible to vote, with voting being mandatory for citizens aged between 18 and 70 and optional for adults and teenagers aged 16 and 17, as well as for residents abroad. Massa obtained 36.78% of the votes in the first round, while Milei received 29.99%.
