The Government commented the transparency of this second electoral round, as well Julio Vitobello the Presidence general secretary highlighted the work of the prosecutors of the different political forces and the regularity in which these elections took place: “It is important that citizens know the amount of cross controls there are to provide transparency to the elections.”
Preliminar results will be met at 21:00 (Argentinian local hour), but the first count is usually an indicator of the final results: "except in very close elections, with a very tight distance in number of votes between one political force and another, the final results do not change," says the authorities.
Whoever wins today elections will govern a country for the next four years a country with an inflation rate that exceeds 46%, which will be the principal rate for the future president.
