Libertário Milei vence as presidenciais na Argentina
November 20, 2023 - O libertário de extrema direita Javier Milei venceu a segunda volta das presidenciais na Argentina, prometendo mudanças “drásticas” na estratégia económica do país que vive a pior crise em duas décadas.
Milei won 55.7 per cent of the vote, against 44.3 per cent for economy minister Sergio Massa of the centre-left Peronist government, with over 99 per cent of votes counted.
Former U.S. President Donald Trump congratulated Mr Milei on his victory, saying he would “Make Argentina Great Again!”.
Milei is pledging economic shock therapy. His plans include shutting the central bank, ditching the peso, and slashing spending, potentially painful reforms that resonated with voters angry at the economic malaise.
