The Promise of Change? Argentine Election Overview and the New Macri Presidency

  • SCI Belgrave Square, 14/15 Belgrave Square, London

Argentina has a new president after the first run-off voting ever held for an Argentine Presidential Election, opposition leader and Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri, from the Cambiemos coalition narrowly defeated FPV candidate and Buenos Aires Province Governor Daniel Scioli. Macri's victory signals a shift in political direction for the country and the end of 'Kirchnerismo', with President Macri arriving with promises of change.

On the panel to discuss the results of this election, when they are finally announced, we are delighted to welcome: Andrew Thompson, freelance journalist and Writer/Editor for Latin News; and Dr Christopher Wylde, Associate Professor at Richmond, the American International University in London.
