Centre-left Alberto Fernández wins Argentina presidency

Centre-left opposition candidate Alberto Fernández has been elected president of Argentina in a vote dominated by economic concerns. Fernández secured more than the 45% of the vote needed to win, beating conservative incumbent Mauricio Macri. Raucous crowds gathered at Fernández’s election headquarters to celebrate the result. The vote was held amid an economic crisis that has left a third of Argentina’s population in poverty. Macri had trailed behind his challenger in pre-election polls and was trounced by the opposition in primary elections in August.
