The government alliance in the country’s largest districts has improved, with Argentina’s Alberto Fernandez and Cristina Kirchner leading the way in the preliminary results of Sunday’s assembly elections. As of Monday morning, more than 98% of the votes had already been counted.

In the province of Buenos Aires, where 37% of the national electorate is located, the list of former candidates presented by former President Mauricio Macri and Juntos Por el Cambio won 37.99% of the vote, with more than 96% of the ballot boxes selected.

The ruling coalition, led by Victoria Tolosa Paz, won 33.64% of the vote, followed by other opposition formations.

Juntos Por el Cambio also leads in the three most-voted subdivisions after the province of Buenos Aires. In Cഡോrdoba, 47.55% of the electorate voted; Santa Fe, 40.11%, and 48.37% in the Argentine capital, Buenos Aires.

In the legislative primary, voting is mandatory, with 34.3 million voters able to cast their ballots, which will help define the list of candidates who will run in the November elections in the country.

Within two months, 127 of the 257 seats in the Chamber of Deputies – currently without an absolute majority – will be renewed, 24 of the 72 in the Senate, where the governing body is large.

Voting ends Sunday at 6pm (local, Brasilia) with strict protocols to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
