Argentine conservative opposition wins provincial governor election by landslide
Argentine conservative opposition wins provincial governor election by landslide: Official preliminary election data indicates that the conservative coalition achieved a landslide win in the most populated province in Argentina, Santa Fe, thanks to the largest opposition alliance, Juntos por el Cambio.
At 57.14% of the province’s polling places, ballots had been tabulated as of Sunday night, giving Maximiliano Pullaro 60.60% of the total, while Marcelo Lewandowski, the candidate for the Peronista coalition Union por la Patria, received 29.25%.
Adjacent to the Rosario agricultural port complex, which is the destination of over 80% of Argentina’s agricultural exports, Santa Fe is one of the nation’s most significant agricultural regions.
During a severe economic downturn, when yearly inflation shot up to over 115%, the province elections were occurring. Just six weeks remain before Argentina’s presidential elections on October 22, when the governing center-left Peronist party, led by current Economy Minister Sergio Massa, will attempt to hold onto power. The opposition alliance’s resounding success hails from this election. Conservative economist Javier Milei is leading Juntos por el Cambio candidate Patricia Bullrich and Massa in the most recent national polls.
