In Tierra del Fuego, the electoral competition for governor includes Hector Stefani (Republican Proposal), Pablo Blanco (Together for Change) and Gustavo Melella (Forge Concertation), who is the current governor and has the support of groups progressives like La Campora and the Justicialistas.

In La Pampa, the governorship is disputed by candidates such as Sergio Ziliotto (Justicialista Front), Martin Berhongaray (Together for Change), Luciano González (Left and Workers Front) and Claudio Acosta (From the Foot).

The tweet reads, "The Supreme Court decided to suspend two provincial elections. What do Argentines think of the Supreme Court? 67.6 percent have a negative view of it."

In Salta, 12 candidates dispute the governorship. Among them are Gustavo Saenz, (Gustavo Gobernador Alliance), Miguel Nanni (Together for Change), Emiliano Estrada (Advance Front), Ramiro Escorin (For Unity), and Marcos Tognolini (Movement Towards Socialism).

On Sunday, elections were also scheduled to be held in San Juan and Tucuman. However, these processes were suspended by the Supreme Court until an indefinite date. In the province of San Juan, Argentines will only elect legislators, mayors, and councilors.
