People in Argentina elect a new president on Sunday. For the first time in 12 years, the name Kirchner won't be on the ballot paper. The current president, Cristina Kirchner, succeeded her husband in 2010 and can't stand again.
Ex-Argentine president Cristina Kirchner is to run for the senate. But the decision is likely to split the left-wing opposition's chances against President Mauricio Macri’s coalition.
Argentina ex-President Cristina Kirchner has been criminally charged for the fourth time, and her passport has been confiscated. The latest charges stem from alleged money laundering in real estate ventures.
Former Vice President Lenin Moreno has claimed a win in the presidential runoff ballot amid calls for a recount from his conservative challenger. The calls set the stage for protests in the historically turbulent nation.
"Don't be afraid" is the message of Argentine President-elect Mauricio Macri. After 12 years of Peronist rule, the people of Argentina have voted for a pro-market industrialist.
