Argentina: President Fernandez casts ballot in historic runoff elections

Argentina, Buenos Aires
November 23, 2015 at 14:35 GMT +00:00 · Published

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner cast her vote in the second round of the country's presidential elections in Buenos Aires, Sunday.

During the press statement, the Argentine leader said "I really believe that I don't know how many governments would have resisted the conflicts we went through these years without losing strength."

The second round of the presidential elections will decide who is the Kirschner's successor. Whatever the result of the election it will mark the end of the 12-year rule of the Kirchner couple, after the late Nestor Kirchner was elected in 2003; in 2007 his wife Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner took power. The current president has served two consecutive terms and is barred from running again under Argentina's constitution.

Sunday's election marks the first ever presidential runoff election in Argentinia. Over 32 million voters are expected to take part.
