Misiones: Radicals expect 'glorious day' for today’s gubernatorial elections

Radical Party’s gubernatorial candidate for Misiones, Luis Mario Pastori, told reporters after casting his vote that today “is going to be an exceptional day for Radicalism”, and added that his party will be the main star of today’s elections.

Likewise, Pastori said he spoke to Radical Party leaders across the province who informed him that the elections were taking place normally and that is very noticeable the great amount of people approaching the polls.

Also socialist candidate Mariano Diaz casted his vote and said that Misiones “has been witnessing flat political campaigns without any serious debate between contenders for quite a long time”, and emphasized to be very upset “by the major economic constraint to which his party was put under thus avoiding a larger development of the campaign’s apparatus.”

Meanwhile, more than 700,000 residents in the province of Misiones are going to the polls to vote and will decide the fate of incumbent Kirchnerite governor, Maurice Closs, who is seeking re-election.

The 718,134 elegible voters in misiones will decide between Closs and nine other candidates, including Kirchnerite Luis Viana, UCR candidate Luis Pastori, and Claudio Wipplinger, representing the Worker's Party.

The Unión Popular, the faction of dissident peronism led by Eduardo Duhalde, will not stand in the elections -the first time since 1989- after admitting that it was "impossible" for them to win in the province.

Provincial Government Minister, Jorge Franco, told reporters that 3,000 security men including police officers, Border guards, and member of the Navy patrol.
