Argentina Is Set To Change

Conservative Mauricio Macri has been just won Argentina’s presidential elections after Cristina Fernandez conceded.

With most votes counted, Mr Macri led Daniel Scioli by 51.5% to 48.5%.

He had a party on stage during victory rally in Buenos Aires while enjoying the spotlight he did give great thanks to his staff.

Mr Macri’s victory is the first in more than a decade for Argentina’s centre-right opposition and ends the 12-year rule of the Peronist Party.

“Today is a historic day,” said Mr Macri, addressing thousands of supporters. “It’s the changing of an era.”

Sunday’s victory is a turnaround for Mr Macri, who was the mayor of Buenos Aires. The governor of Buenos Aires, Mr Scioli, did not manage enough of a lead to win the vote outright which forced the first ever run-off in the countries history.
