The outlook is so uncertain that there is no clear favorite. The polls show a technical tie, since some give the ruling party as the favorite and others the opposition; in both cases, with little advantage.
Thus, in this second round it also remains to be seen how the mobilization due to rejection caused by both candidates and who will be chosen by the 23% who voted in the first round for Patricia Bullrich, who by announcing her support for Milei triggered a break with some parties that formed the Together for Change coalition, which declared themselves neutral.
Whoever managed to move to Casa Rosada will have to deal with the umpteenth financial crisis of a country whose inflation is expected to once again exceed historical highs and in the midst of strong polarization resulting from the emergence of that ultraliberal and conservative third way that Milei represents.
In Argentina, voting is mandatory, except for exceptions contemplated by law and which must in any case be justified by the voter. Failure to attend implies a fine and, in case of non-payment, disqualification from carrying out proceedings before official organizations for a whole year.
The obligation to vote does not apply in the case of expatriated Argentines. In the Spanish State, more than 110,000 citizens are called to the polls in six different centers.
The polling stations will be open between 08:00 and 18:00 on Sunday (12:00-22:00 in Euskal Herria).
