As it usually happens in many elections, the presidential elections of last October 27 registered very different results between Argentines living in Spain and Argentines living in their own country, according to data published past weekend by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The participation of Argentine voters residing in Spain reached an historic record, with 9,012 of the 93,546 citizens with the right to vote. Sixty-nine percent (6,233) of voters elected Together for Change, the electoral formula headed by still-president Mauricio Macri and Miguel Pichetto, while 21% (1,955) voted for the Frente de Todos, by Alberto Fernández and Cristina Fernández.
The Peronist Alberto Fernández, who will take office on 10 December, won the presidential elections in the country as a whole (including the diaspora) without the need for a second round, with around 48% of the votes compared to around 41% for Macri.
Outside Argentina, and with a participation that increased 250% worldwide with respect to 2017, Mauricio Macri won in 70 of the 82 countries where voting took place, with almost 75.7% of the votes, compared to 16.3% received by Alberto Fernández and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
