The results of the Primary, Open, Simultaneous and Compulsory in Argentina put the government of President Alberto Fernández in trouble, in the face of the advanced opposition, which has a comfortable advantage in the general elections in November.
The ruling Frente de Todos only managed to win in two of the six provinces that change seats in the Upper House. The move of the opposition in the districts of greater weight such as the province of Buenos Aires and the capital caused surprise.
The first phase of the legislative elections gave a glimpse of what is coming between now and 63 days until November 14, where 24 new senators and 127 deputies from 257 seats will be elected.
Surprise in many, concern in others at the advance of an opposition whose speech since the current administration began has been increasingly aggressive.
Calm and equanimous, President Alberto Fernández acknowledged the result of these primaries, which showed an X-ray of the current political situation and pointed out that nothing is more important than listening to the people.
"When the people express themselves, we abide," Fernández said Sunday night from the bunker that the FDT installed in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Chacarita.
With less than two months to go before the November legislative elections, Frente de Todos will have to regain confidence in the streets, seeking not to lose what it achieved at the polls two years ago. AGENCIES
