CFK casts vote, returns to Buenos Aires to await results
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner casted her vote at Nuestra Señora de Fátima School in Río Gallegos, Santa Cruz, and has already returned to Buenos Aires City, where she will wait for the results of the election at the Intercontinental Hotel.
The Head of State returned from Río Gallegos at the Tango 01 accompanied by her daughter Florencia, after visiting her son Máximo and her daughter-in-law, María Rocío García, who has recently suffered a miscarriage.
After casting her vote, she praised the primaries and assured “this is the most important political reform since 1983. We are witnessing a historic event.”
Asked about the primary elections system, the Head of State said “we are building a more transparent and participatory political system so that all citizens can participate in the life of political parties.”
Likewise, Fernández de Kirchner said that “thanks to the political reform all parties and their candidates could access the media so that all Argentines could be presented with their proposals.”
The Kirchnerite City bunker for these elections is located in the Intercontinental Hotel, whose perimeter has been fenced from early morning hours.
