Javier Milei is the new president of Argentina after winning this Sunday, November 19, in the Ballot, the second electoral round, against the pro-government candidate Sergio Massa.
After the elections on October 22, Massa, the current Minister of Economy, obtained 36% of the votes but was not enough to win in the first round. The libertarian Milei, who had been the most voted at the national level in the primaries, was close to 30% and entered the ballot.
Milei, candidate of Libertad Avanza, will take over as president of Argentina next Sunday, December 10, replacing Alberto Fernández.
