The elections take place in a context marked by protests over the consequences of IMF-based policies and the repression against Indigenous Peoples in Jujuy.

On Sunday, the Argentines will attend the Primary, Open, Simultaneous, and Mandatory Elections (PASO) to choose those who will become candidates for the presidency.

Those politicians who win the PASO will participate in the presidential elections on Octuber 22. In the event of a second round, the Argentines will go to the polls on November 19. The winner will assume the presidency on December 10.

The 2023 PASO will take place in a context marked by protests over the consequences of foreign debt, which forced President Alberto Fernandez to sign policy agreements with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The presidential race has also been marred by the repression against Indigenous Peoples in the province of Jujuy, where right-wing Gerardo Morales, who is also a candidate, imposed a Constitutional reform that facilitates large-scale mining operations.

“The Indigenous peoples' protests in Jujuy are not a reaction to the Constitutional reform. It is exactly the other way around: the reform is the subnational government's reaction to the growing organization of the Indigenous peoples, who seek to defend their territories,” writer Manuel Fontenla explained.
