Buenos Aires, Oct 22 (EFE).- The Argentine president, Alberto Fernández, "deeply" congratulated the candidate for president of his space, Sergio Massa, who won first place in this Sunday's elections and will contest the runoff on October 19. November with the libertarian, Javier Milei.

"I have said it: Sergio is the person best prepared to guarantee a path of growth and equality for Argentina. The Argentine people have committed to defending work, education, health and their rights," said Fernández in his account on the X network (ex Twitter).

Fernández will end his term on December 10 and could pass the presidential sash to Massa, if his current Minister of Economy is elected in the second round.

Despite being part of the same Peronist space, Alberto Fernández did not go to the electoral bunker where the winning candidate of the first electoral round gave his speech before hundreds of enthusiastic militants. Nor was the current vice president and former president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, present at the Massa electoral headquarters.

The candidate of the Peronist formation Unión por la Patria led this Sunday's elections by adding 36.59% of the votes, with 97.21% of the tables counted, so he will face the leader of La Libertad Avanza, Javier Mili, who obtained 30.04% of the votes.

Alberto Fernández highlighted Massa's "experience," "his concern for those who need it most, his vocation for dialogue and his search for national unity," as "the axes" that Argentina "needs."

"We have the talent of our people and the wealth of our country. The future is promising," the president emphasized.
