Havana, October 30 (RHC)-- Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel congratulated Cristina and Alberto Fernández for their victory in the presidential elections held in Argentina.
“A deserved victory that favors the defeat of neoliberalism. Congratulations from Cuba, dear Cristina as well as Alberto. The Great Nation is celebrating,” the Cuban president, who is in Russia on a working visit, wrote on Twitter.
Peronist Alberto Fernández, leader of the Frente de Todos party, with former President Cristina Fernández as a running mate, defeated on the first round the current head of state, Mauricio Macri, with a margin of more than 7 percentage points.
Fernández will assume the leadership of the State on December 10 without the need for a second round, since the latter is held only in case the winner of the elections does not get more than 45% percent of the votes cast.
