'Argentina votes to continue the same way or change in its history'
Mauricio Macri is pictured after casting his vote in the Buenos Aires City neighbourhood of Palermo.
Let’s Change presidential candidate Mauricio Macri voted in the Wenceslao Ponce School in the Buenos Aires City neighbourhood of Palermo where he told reporters the electoral process was unfolding “without incidents,” hoping the federal government “maximizes the measures” to avoid something "similar to what happened in Tucumán" from happening today.
“Argentina will vote to continue the same way or a change in its history. Let’s hope they vote for the change,” the outgoing mayor of BA City told reporters after casting his ballot.
“It is a time for much responsibility for the citizenship,” Macri said. “I think I have learnt a lot in politics, of each of the people and organizations I have contacted,” he said and called for a change in Argentina’s voting system.
“Our commitment is to have it (the electronic voting ballot) in 2017, or the best available technology by that time,” he said expecting first results to be ready by 11 pm.
