President Alberto Fernández voted at 9:30 a.m. at the headquarters of the Argentine Catholic University (UCA) in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Puerto Madero. "It is an important day for democracy that turns 40. I trust that everything will be done in order and in peace, as always when we vote," said the President.

40 seconds were enough for him to carry out the electoral procedure.

“It is one more day where we Argentines choose about our future. We must respect and take great care of democracy. May it be a day of happiness,” predicted the national leader after voting. “Since we are in a closed season, I'm not going to say anything else,” Fernández stressed in his brief message.

Argentine citizens go to the polls this Sunday, in the second round, to choose between the former Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, and the right-wing Javier Milei as the new president for the period 2023-2027.

More than 34 million Argentines are called to cast their vote in the polls that will operate from 08:00 to 18:00 local time (from 11:00 to 21:00 GMT).

The National Electoral Chamber (CNE) announced that during the day 106,160 tables will be operating to cast the vote throughout the territory of the South American country.

The candidates seeking to succeed the current Argentine president Alberto Fernández are Javier Milei, from La Libertad Avanza, and Sergio Massa, from Unión por la Patria.

Massa and Milei reached this stage because they were the two with the most votes and neither obtained more than 45 percent of the necessary votes or more than 40 with a difference of ten percent over the second to win in the first round of the elections, held last October 22.

The Unión por la Patria candidate obtained 36.7 percent of the votes, against 30 percent of the La Libertad Avanza candidate and 23.8 percent of Patricia Bullrich, who was the third most voted.
