Javier Milei, a right-wing libertarian outsider, has won the presidential election in Argentina, defeating his rival, economy minister Sergio Massa.

The provisional results show Milei with nearly 56% of the vote compared to Massa’s 44%. Milei’s unconventional proposals, including using the US dollar as the official currency, resonated with voters tired of traditional politics amid economic challenges.

Many see him as an untested figure similar to Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro. His victory signals a desire for change in a country grappling with high inflation and widespread poverty.

While some leaders in Latin America express concern, Brazil’s President wishes the new government success, emphasizing solidarity with Argentina.

Chile’s President acknowledges Milei’s victory and Massa’s gracious concession, expressing support for the Argentine people.” (Original source: BBC)
