Presidents of Argentina and Venezuela Congratulate Vazquez on Electoral Win

MONTEVIDEO – Latin American leaders have congratulated Tabare Vazquez following his victory in the second round of the presidential elections in Uruguay.

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez and Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro were the first to congratulate Vazquez, 74, an oncologist by profession and successor to current president Jose Mujica, after the results were declared Sunday.

Fernandez spoke with Vazquez by telephone while the latter proposed a visit to neighboring Argentina in the near future.

The Uruguayan president-elect also expressed his desire to be present at the inauguration of the new headquarters of the Union of South American Nations (Unasur), which will be named after the deceased former Argentine President Nestor Kirchner, in Guayaquil, Ecuador, later this week.

Fernandez also congratulated vice president-elect Raul Sendic for the convincing victory, which will bring the leftist Broad Party to power for the third consecutive term.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro congratulated Vazquez through his Twitter account immediately after the elections were concluded, as surveys had predicted the Broad Party victory, and did not wait for the final results to be declared.

The Mexican government also congratulated Vazquez for his election triumph and for the peaceful manner in which the elections were held.

“Mexico expresses its pleasure on the peaceful, democratic and exemplary manner in which the elections were held. It reiterates its wish to continue its excellent relations of friendship and cooperation that has historically united both countries,” Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Unasur General Secretary and former Colombian president Ernesto Samper also joined in, praising the maturity of Uruguayan democracy through his Twitter account.
