Macri poised to win Argentine presidential election

World Bulletin

In an article written by Charles Newbery for the World BulletinLouisa Richey from Cefeidas Group was quoted in the lead-up to Argentina’s run-off presidential election and the shift towards moderation:

“There is a move toward change as opposed to continuity,” Louisa Richey, a political analyst at Cefeidas Group in Buenos Aires, said Friday.

“There is a groundswell of support for Macri,” Richey said.

While both candidates have slammed each other, Macri has done better at capitalizing on the demand for change, she said.

Scioli has always been known as a more consultative and collaborative politician, but he has not been able to distinguish this in the campaigning, with many voters associating him with the antagonistic style of outgoing President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, Richey added.

“Macri has taken a lot of the space as the more moderate candidate,” she said. “There is a bit of fatigue in the combative style of the outgoing government.”
