Argentina Determined to Do Things Well, President Macri Says

BUENOS AIRES – Argentina is a country determined to do things well, President Mauricio Macri said in his response to the outcome of the general elections held on Sunday in which ruling coalition Cambiemos is leading.

“We reaffirm our serious and deep commitment to change,” said an exultant Macri in the Costa Salguero convention center located in the Palermo neighborhood of Buenos Aires.

Macri also stressed that the election was peaceful and people voted freely “to determine in what kind of country we want to live” and in which not a group of candidates or just a party won “but the certainty that history can be changed forever.”

For Macri, the recovery of Argentina lies in the fight against poverty.

The leader of Cambiemos reached out to those who voted for another party assuring that the door will always be open to bring in their proposals, all with the aim that Argentines live better.

Macri called for a society “where the value of truth and teamwork are non-negotiable” and was against one that rewards those who take shortcuts and cheat.

He underlined the efforts made by his government to fight against mafias, drug trafficking and corruption “because with them there is no future for Argentines.”

“The most difficult stage has already passed,” he added, “and we are growing with transparency and integrating ourselves in the world with firm steps to achieve sustained growth that will allow us the shared dream of getting all Argentines out of poverty.”

Cambiemos emerged as the leader during the counting of votes in the country’s main constituencies ahead of the party of former president Cristina Fernandez (2007-2015).

With 91.56 percent counted in the province of Buenos Aires – which concentrates 37 percent of the electoral census – the list of Senate candidates led by the former education minister Esteban Bullrich has won the most support with 41.62 percent, followed by the United Citizens bloc led by Fernandez, with 36.99 percent of the votes.
