Primary Shock

Paso primaries ended in the totally unexpected vicotory of libertarian deputy Javier Milei, while more predictably former security minister, Patricia Bullrich, beat Buenos Aires City Mayor, Horacio Rodríguez Larrreta, for the Juntos por el Cambio presidential nomination by almost six points. But the differences were minimal, with percenteges of 30, 28.27 and 27.27 for Milei. the opposition and the government (trailing in third place) respectively (at the time of writing). Milei won 16 of the 22 provinces, all inland. Buenos Aires Province Governor, Axel Kiciloff, finished just three points in front of the combined votes of Juntos por el Cambio rivals, Néstor Grindetti and Diego Santilli (with the former to clinch the gubernatorial nomination), while in this City, Jorge Macri edged Radical Senator, Martín Lousteau by 1.5 percent to lay claim to the official mayoral nomination with a pool of 55 percent of the votes for the October general election. Economy Minister, Sergio Massa, won almost 80 percent of the Peronist vote over social activist, Juan Grabois, to confirm the Union por la Patria presidential nomination. Turnover was 69 percent.
